The Driving Test
Before you are able to take your practical driving test you need to have passed your theory test. Both the Theory & Practical tests can be booked via https://www.gov.uk/dvsa. Alternatively, they can be booked by calling 0300 200 1122 (correct as of July 2019).
Once you have your provisional driving licence you can book your theory test. The theory test can only be taken once you are 17 years old. As soon as you've passed your theory test, you can book your practical driving test.
Full details of both the Theory and Practical driving tests can be seen online https://www.gov.uk/dvsa. On here there is information on the requirements and criteria of each test including cost and ways in which to book, (and in the case of the Theory Test) links to Study material to get you prepared. Your Instructor would be more than happy to assist you or answer any questions you may have regarding either test.
What is the standard procedure for lessons when I take my test?
A minimum of a two hour lesson is required when you take your test. This will allow for practice before the test, followed by the test itself after which you will be driven home. Once at the test centre, you will be met by your examiner, who will check your licence and theory test certificate. You will then be taken outside to check your eye sight (you must be able to read a number plate from a minimum of 20.5 meters) and answer two 'show me, tell me vehicle safety questions. The examiner will then explain the procedure of the test before you depart out of the test centre, you will return 40-45 minutes later. At the end of the test you will be informed of their decision as to whether you have passed or failed, your Instuctor will then drive you home. If you have passed, the examiner will ask you if you would like your new licence sent to you and they will dispose of your provisional licence.
After passing, you are eligible to take a one-off pass plus course for a fee of £160 which enables you to gain more experience on the road especially the motorways. Once successfully passed you could be eligible for cheaper car insurance.
