After completion of Theory Test, an actual driving test is conducted to ensure cohesion to traffic rules and regulations. The practical drivng test lasts approximately 40 minutes. Since 2010, there has been a 10-minute independent drive element, plus 1 reverse excercise within this 40 minute test. Obviously, road and traffic conditions may make the driving test run longer. So please leave room for up to an hour, maybe more, for the driving test completion.
NOTE! The DVSA is very clear on how learner drivers go about learning to drive.
You can be fined;
up to £1,000 and get 3 to 6 penalty points
if found to be driving without the appropriate supervision.
What are the Driving Theory Test Questions?
The DVSA needs to be assured you understand you have sufficient knowledge on the basic workings of a car, and the road and traffice regulations. Most of this is found in the UK Road Safety Act. This can, however, be a tedious document to read for the general lay person.
The Highway Code book is a cheap way to understaning what is required of any road user. Copies of the Highway Code book are available from as little as £2.50 from most highstreet book shops. Even better, there are bargains to be had online. It is full of practical actual advice on how to drive. No learner driver should be without the Highway Code. When you’ve studied the Highway Code, you can start thinking of the Theory Test.

Whose Car is used For Driving Test?
You need to arrive at test with the car for test purposes. A lot of learner drivers fret, unnecessarily, about the legality of their own private car for driving tuition. However, there is no need to worry.
Any road worthy car is just as good for delivery of an enduring driving experiences. You just need to make sure it is taxed, and that there is ample fuel, with the right supervision from an age appropriate instructor/teacher/supervisor.
The car used for driving tuition must be road worthy. So, if your car is less than 3 years, you do not require an MOT certification. If older, please get it tested. There could be safety implications.
Recap on Car Suitability
The car must aslo have;
- MOT car where necessary.
- Pay the relevant Vehicle Excise Duty.
- Get the car Adequately Insured.
- Display the relevant “L” or “D” Plate during tuition.
Ideally, the driving supervisor should get an extra mirror so he, or she, can have better visibility of traffic from behind. Your driving instructor car will normally have this. If you went for a driving test in your own private car, the driving test examiner may refuse to conduct the test if there is no extra mirror instlled.
The extra mirror can range from £2.50 to £25.00. But they all do the same job, give the supervisor visibility from the rear. So don’t go breaking the bank. Plan ahead and get it cheaper from you local supermarket or specialist car supplies shop.
Must I use a driving instructor’s Car?
No. Professional Driving instructors have Dual Controls fitted as a requirement by specialist insurance companies. This extra insurance cover of the actual driving tuition makes the instructor’s car an invaluably cheaper resource.
However, anyone serious about learning how to drive should also consider learning with friends or family as a boost to tuition by a professional driver educator. It may cost more money upfront over a few weeks, but does pay off in the long run.
What is the Driving Licence Application Process?
First things first… A driving instructor needs to see your provisional driving licence before delivery of any driving classes on a public road. Off-road driving tuition, while helpful, is not quite practical for the dedicated learner driver. You need real practice on a public road, interacting with other road users. The sooner you start applying for the provisional driving licence, the better.
It is generally better planning ahead for driving test. The driving licence application starts with you getting the application for provisional licence started.
You can start aplying for a provisional driving licence when you are 15 years and 9 months old; although you should not start learning to drive until you are 17. And do get a driving supervisor.
Who, or what, is a Driving Supervisor?
The person teaching the learner driver is the supervisor. The driving tutor MUST have 3 years full driving licence from any country in the Europeen Commission, or European Economic Area, and be at least 21 years old. So if your parents can drive, they may well take you out for a spin. Maybe a friend of the family, or spouse can help.
