The United Kingdom driving test is a test which drivers must pass to obtain a driving licence. Different tests are available for users of different vehicles, from car drivers, to motorcyclists, HGV drivers and Trailers (B+E).
The test is separated into three distinct parts: the theory test, hazard perception test (taken together) and practical test.
It is necessary to pass all three parts, theory, hazard perception and practical, before a full driving licence is granted.
TEST BOOKING WARNING!
Some sites will make a charge for booking your test .
There is absolutely no need to pay a test booking fee.
Make sure you use the official DVSA Driving Test Booking Site.

 

Current fees are (2nd Feb 2013) £25.00 for theory test and £62.00 for practical test (£75.00 out of normal hours)

The THEORY test is a computer based multiple choice exam, it is very simple to understand and needs no previous computer experience..
The HAZARD PERCEPTION part of the test is also computer based and is designed to test your reaction to the changes around us. This is something that you will learn to develop from your 1st practical lesson.
As a customer you can register with Lytes Driving School for the use of our Theory Test Pro free of charge.
Full guidance and support will be given in conjunction with your practical lessons.
The nearest test centre for this area is based in Leicester, Grantham  and Swindon. The current test fee is £25.00.
See our Driving Lessons page for Theory Test Pro to help you

What is the Theory Test?

1) 50 Multiple Choice Questions

2) Hazard Perception Test comprising 14 video clips, each clip lasting around a minute. You will find a total of 15 hazards.

You have to pass both multiple choice and hazard perception parts at the same test appointment to pass. Should you pass one part, but fail the other, you will need to book another appointment to take both elements of the test again. The test is completed under exam conditions in a dedicated Theory Test centre entirely on a touch screen computer (you have the choice of utilizing a mouse should you prefer!). Headphones will have to be used throughout the entire test.

A voiceover may be requested where the questions and answers are automatically read out to help candidates with reading difficulties, or for whom English isn’t their first language.

Foreign Licence Holders -

EEA Countries - In the event you hold a valid Community licence and you're simply visiting the United Kingdom, you can drive any vehicle so long as your licence remains valid. The correct full entitlement for the vehicle you intend to drive must be shown on your licence.

Non EEA Countries - Should you hold a full driving licence issued outside the EEA it might be possible to change it for an equivalent British licence. You need to contact the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to discover if you are able to exchange your foreign licence.

 In the event you cannot exchange your foreign licence you will need to apply for a British provisional licence and take a theory and practical test.

What Happens on your Driving Test?
 
What Happens On My Driving Test?

What happens? How is it conducted? Where will you go? What do I have to do? When do I get told if I have passed?

Well, we shall tell you exactly what will happen.

We will assume that your practical driving test has been booked. If you are unsure how to do this we will be happy to help. Please be aware that you will need to have passed your theory test before you are permitted to book a driving test.

You will need to provide a car to take your driving test in. That may sound obvious to some; however, we often get asked what cars are used for the driving test. So, just to be clear, the Driving Test Centre does NOT provide vehicles, so have to provide your own. Of course, this would usually be your driving instructor’s car. I personally have witnessed someone at a test centre being turned away because he did not have a car (he arrived by motorbike).

When you book your driving test you may find the start time a bit odd (i.e. 9.17am, 11.21am etc.) don’t worry, this is normal. If you book online make sure your put the DVSA’s website address in your address book. Should the DVSA have to move your test date and time you will be informed via email. If this message goes into your spam box you may be unaware (it does happen so be warned).

You will need to bring with you both parts of your driving licence (Card and paper) and your theory test certificate (although the paper part will be discontinued in 2015).

You should not usually enter the driving test center car park (if it has one) until about 10 minutes before your test is due to start (or whatever your test center specifies, your instructor will know if they specify a minimum time), as previous tests may not be completed. After all, would you want some bozo coming in early and getting in your way?

If the test center has parking available reverse into a bay. This gets you facing the way you need to go when you start your driving test, so you don’t have an awkward reverse out. It also gives you the chance to practice a bay park.

Go into the waiting room and take a seat, you don’t have to tell anyone that you are there. At the appropriate time your examiner will arrive and ask to see both parts of you driving licence. While they are checking your licence they will ask you to read and sign the insurance and residency declaration on the top left of the driving test report. You are signing to say that the car is insured for the purposes of the test and that you have lived in this country for 185 days out of the last 12 months.

Your examiner will then ask if you want your accompanying driver (usually your driving instructor) to accompany you on the test. This is entirely your choice and you need to decide before the test whether you would like your driving instructor to sit in the back of the car during the test. Some folks are keen for the moral support and others prefer to go alone. It’s your choice not your instructors as it is your driving test. If you decline then the examiner will ask if you want your driving instructor to be present at the end of the driving test for your debrief. We strongly recommend you say yes to this, but again it’s your choice. Should you choose to have your instructor sit in the back of the car, please be aware that they are not permitted to take any part in the test.

Your examiner will then lead the way to the car park, or wherever your car is. They will ask you to read a number plate at a distance of 20 meters. If you can’t do this after 3 attempts it will result in test failure and the test goes no further. They will then ask you two of the Show Me Tell Me questions (referred to as safety questions). These will be covered by your driving instructor well before your test. However, these questions are beyond the realm of this article. When you are in the car and the examiner has checked they are happy with the vehicle, they will usually ask you if you want to know a bit about the test. Even if it’s not your first test we suggest that you say yes. This will give you a chance to get used to the examiners manner.

They will give the following information in whatever order they deem appropriate.

“The test will last 38-40 minutes using different road and traffic conditions. Follow the road ahead at all times unless road signs or markings tell you to do otherwise, and when I want you to turn left or right I will tell you in good time. I will ask you to carry out 1 manoeuver (the kind of thing you have been practicing during your driving lessons) I may ask you to do an emergency stop (1 in 3 tests does an emergency stop), and there will be a period of independent driving lasting about 10 minutes. (We don’t know where you will go, but it should not matter if you are at the right standard)

The examiner will then ask you to start your engine and drive on when you are ready. Follow the examiners directions and if you are unsure it’s ok to ask. If you turn the wrong way but do it safely then you have not committed any fault.

You will be asked to stop on the left at a safe or convenient place on a number of occasions for different reasons. Sometimes you will then be asked to drive on. You must check your mirrors early and signal to stop if required. When you drive on, check properly including your blind spot.

You will also be asked to stop before you are asked to carry out an emergency stop, your manoeuver or the beginning (and possibly during) your independent driving.

When entering the driving test centre car park (if they have one) at the end of the test you will directed to drive forward into any bay. However, if you have not completed a manoeuver on the road you will finish with a bay park.

When the examiner asks you to switch the engine off (and the car is not rolling down a hill because you forgot the handbrake) then the test is finished.

The examiner (when they have completed their driving test report, which takes seconds) will then inform whether you have passed or not. If you have learnt with Lytes Driving School then I’m sure it will have been an excellent drive and you will have passed your practical driving test with flying colours. The examiner will then ask to see both parts of your licence and complete a test pass certificate. You can leave your licence with the examiner and a new pretty pink driving licence will come through within a few weeks. When your new licence arrives you can do what you like with your pass certificate as it’s no longer valid. Keep it to bore your grandchildren with, destroy it or smoke it (don’t do that, it’s not big or clever even if it is funny) the test pass certificate acts as your driving licence until the new one arrives. You are now legally entitled to drive unaccompanied from that point (as long as the vehicle is legal). If not successful the examiner will run explain the reason why. You can expect your driving instructor to drive the vehicle home.

The marking system for the driving test is beyond the scope of this article and will be covered by your driving instructor prior to your test. However you will pass the driving test if you do not commit any fault considered serious or dangerous, or commit less than 15 driver faults (although you can’t have too many of the same fault).

When you pass your test a great weight will be lifted from your shoulders and it’s one of the best feelings in the world. but how can you picture how it feels? Well, you don’t have to because the picture of Jenny below sums it up.
