Here's what you'll do in your test
It's always best to arrive at the test centre about 10 minutes before your test...you're able to
relax and prepare yourself mentally for the test.
Your lesson with me before your driving test at the Shrewsbury test centre will be designed
to give you just enough driving practise and to get you in the right frame of mind so you're properly
prepared to take your test.
You'll need to show your theory test pass certificate and you're
provisional license...so make sure you have them with you...
Also, if you wear contact lens or glasses...bring them
with you. If you don't you will fail the test and won't get a refund.
Your examiner will introduce themself to you at the start...check you papers and ask you to
sign a form saying the car you will be driving is insured.
I can be with you at this stage if you so wish.
It's also possible a supervising examiner will be present to examine the
Once these formalities are over you'll go with the examiner out to the car park.
The EYESITE TEST comes next...
The examiner will ask you to read a number plate... about 67 feet
(20.5m) away. If you can't read it you'll fail the test. But, if there's any doubt, the
examiner will measure the distance to make sure it's correct.
You'll then go to the car and the examiner will ask you questions about car safety and
maintenance... See the SHOW ME, TELL ME
Once you get into the car make sure you take time to do your cockpit drill...adjust your seat,
check your mirrors, and put your seatbelt on.
Your examiner will note down details about the car...to make sure it's taxed and will make a note
of my ADI number.
Your examiner will then tell you what is expected of you during the test. After the briefing
your examiner will ask you to start the engine and drive away.
The test usually lasts for about 40 minutes and during that time your examiner will be watching
what you do and making a note of any mistakes you make.
It's important that you don't get stressed out with your examiner. Approach your
test as you would a normal lesson and you'll be fine. You won't be asked to do anything you haven't done many times
before during your driving lessons.
Remember, you're not expected to be perfect...You're allowed to make up to
15 minor faults... those not considered to be dangerous to
other road users...and still pass the test.
If you make ANY serious or dangerous faults
you'll fail the test.
I'll give you lots of practise to get you ready for your test during our lessons
Your test will involve normal driving through the town... on country roads... and on dual
You'll also do some manoeuvres... reverse parking... reverse around a corner... reverse into a
parking space... turn in the road... hill start... emergency stop.
At the end of your test your examiner will ask you to park the car in a convenient
place at the test centre and ask you to turn off the engine. The examiner will add up your score and either
congratulate you for passing or tell you you've failed.
If you've failed, your examiner will tell what your faults were and ask you if you want your
driving instructor to listen in so you can practise them before your next test.
if you've passed...CONGRATULATIONS...your examiner
will give you your pass certificate and will send off your paperwork to the Driving and Vehicle
Licensing Agency (DVLA) to receive your full driving licence.
You should receive your full driving license within 10 working days.
Your pass certificate allows you to drive your car on your own while you wait for your
full driving licence to arrive.
