What can you expect on the day of your driving test

Getting ready for your driving test, here is what you need to know:

  1. Arrival at the testing location: Plan to arrive at the testing location at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of your test. Make sure you have all the necessary documents with you, including your driving license, appointment letter, and any required identification.

  2. Vehicle safety check: Before the driving test begins, the examiner will conduct a vehicle safety check to make sure the vehicle is roadworthy and equipped with all the required safety features.

  3. Introductions and explanations: The examiner will introduce themselves and explain the format of the test. They will also ask you to sign a declaration stating that the vehicle is insured and that you are the person named on the appointment letter.

  4. The driving test: The driving test consists of two parts: an eyesight test and a driving test. During the eyesight test, you will be asked to read a number plate from a distance of 20 meters (about 65 feet). If you fail the eyesight test, the test will end and you will need to reschedule. If you pass the eyesight test, the driving test will begin. During the driving test, the examiner will give you directions and assess your driving skills.

  5. The debrief: After the driving test, the examiner will give you a debrief, during which they will discuss your performance and provide feedback. If you pass the test, the examiner will issue you with a pass certificate and explain the next steps for obtaining your full driving license. If you fail the test, the examiner will explain the reasons for the failure and provide guidance on how to improve.

  6. Return of your documents: The examiner will return your documents, including your driving license and appointment letter, at the end of the test.
