 What happens during the test?

During the driving test the examiner will give you directions along a test route. These routes are designed to be as uniform as possible and will include a range of typical road and traffic conditions. During the test, the examiner will ask you to carry out set exercises.

Throughout the test you should drive in the way your instructor has taught you. If you make a mistake, don’t worry about it, it might be a less serious driving fault and may not affect your result. The examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving.

You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test. If at any time your examiner considers you to be a danger to other road users your test will be stopped.

You are allowed to take someone with you on the test. This person must be over 16 years old and cannot take any part in the test.

You should continue with the test, even if you think that you may have failed. This is because you may not have actually failed and it’s a good experience to see the test through, in preparation for the next attempt.

Driving test standards

All examiners are trained to carry out the test to the same standard ; they do not have pass or fail quotas. As long as you demonstrate the standard required you will pass your driving test.

At the end of test when you return to the test centre, you will be given a de-brief by the examiner. You will be asked whether or not you want your instructor to attend the de-brief. We recommend that you let us hear the briefing so that we can fully understand what happened during the test.

Weather conditions / mechanical problems etc

DSA do not conduct tests in bad light or in adverse weather conditions for the safety of the candidate and the examiner. If this happens, the DSA will arrange another appointment at no further cost, but compensation is not payable. If the driving test is not completed for reasons attributable to you or your vehicle, you will have to take another test at your own cost.
