Are you determined to pass your Driving Test on the 1st attempt?
Of course you are! If you follow our 10 tips below, then you are giving yourself the very best chance of doing so.
There are 5 parts to the driving test:
How long does the test last?
'Show Me, Tell Me' questions.
Your General Driving Ability.
Pulling over at the side of the road.
Reversing your vehicle.
You'll have to drive for about 20 minutes by following either:
If you cannot see traffic signs.
Going off route.
If you make mistakes during your test.
The examiner will only stop your test if they think your driving is a danger to other road users.
At Go-Pass (UK), we fully prepare you for your driving test, so that you know you are ready to take it when the time comes. However, we don't teach people to just " pass their test". We feel that's your responsibility and your decision as to when you take it. We teach people to drive. We teach them to drive safely and responsibly. We teach them to drive so that they have a good chance of staying safe, accident free and alive for their, hopefully, long life.
At any time you can ask us if we think that you are ready for your test and we will give you an honest yes, or not yet. If you don't ask us, there will come a time when we will ask you if you think it is time you thought about taking the test. If you don't feel ready, then your not. You must feel comfortable and confident in your own driving, otherwise, you are not giving yourself the best chance.
But, we will never be responsible for you passing or failing the driving test. That belongs entirely in your hands. It's about how you drive, and deal with situations as they happen, that determines the result.
If you give your examiner a safe, confident and competent drive, he will issue you with your driving licence.
Since April 6th 2010, the examiners now ask all candidates taking their practical test if they would like to take their instructor/trainer along with them on the test.
This is purely optional. Some candidates feel that the presence of a familiar face in the car could put them more at ease.
There will be a 20 minute section to the driving test, focusing on the candidates own ability of independent driving, this may be done by either use of a SatNav, or, the examiner asking you to follow signs for... somewhere.
Ensure you know what to do should you have to deal with emergency vehicles.
This video will tell you all you need to know, watch it several times and become familiar with it!
