Practical Test

The practical test is 40minutes in duration.  It assesses your safety on the roads through directed driving, independent driving (following road signs or a sat-nav system), a manoeuvre and possibly an emergency stop.  There is also a brief eyesight check at the start and some basic questions on vehicle functions (“show me tell me”), for example, operating windscreen wipers.  A maximum of 15 minor faults are permitted and no serious.
