Like most safety areas within our workplace are reviewed and overhauled, the driving test is no different with new changes including technology being integrated in an already crowded criteria based test. The changes have been designed to make sure new drivers have the required skills needed to help them through a lifetime of safe driving on our now crowded and busy road network. 1: Independent driving part of the test will increase from 10 minutes to 20 minutes. The independent driving part of the test currently lasts around 10 minutes.


The examiner will ask you one 'show me' question, where you'll have to show them how you'd carry out a vehicle safety check. You'll also be asked one 'tell me' question, where you'll have to explain to the examiner how you'd carry out the check. 2.2 Show me how you would check the brake lights are working on this car, (if you need to switch the ignition on, please don't start the engine). Operate brake pedal, make use of reflections in windows, garage doors, etc, or ask someone to help, (may need to switch ignition on, prompt not to start engine).


Driving lesson vouchers are a fantastic way of delivering a skill that they can utilise and use throughout their careers. If you have a friend, child or even a relative who wants to learn to drive, a voucher package from Dave Robson Driver Training fits the package every time. You can choose from discounted gift voucher packages for 10 or even 20 hour courses from us anytime - simply pick the phone up and call us on 07817 752666. Lucky receivers have six months to use their vouchers to book and pay for lessons from us.


This will be a longer test, notably around 70-80 minutes if you're taking an extended driving test because you've been banned from driving. The examiner can show you a simple diagram to help you understand where you're going when following verbal directions. If you can't see a traffic sign (for example, because it's covered by trees), the examiner will give you directions until you can see the next one. Your test result won't be affected if you go off the route, unless you make a fault while doing it.


Learning to drive is as much about knowing how to be safe on the roads as it is about handling the car. You'll learn all about road signs and general road etiquette as well as anticipating hazards. These are the facts: within the first two years of passing your driving test, you're more vulnerable on today's busy roads than more experienced drivers. As many as 1 in 5 newly qualified drivers has an accident in the first year, with the highest risk being faced by 17 to 25 year olds. The Theory Test and the new hazard perception test are designed to boost your skills so that you're less likely to be involved in an accident.


Contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to get help booking your theory test, or book if you don't have an email address.


You must wear glasses or contact lenses every time you drive if you need them to meet the 'standards of vision for driving'. You must tell DVLA if you've got any problem with your eyesight that affects both of your eyes, or the remaining eye if you only have one eye. This doesn't include being short or long sighted or colour blind. You also don't need to say if you've had surgery to correct short sightedness and can meet the eyesight standards. Check if you need to tell DVLA about your eyesight problem by searching the A to Z of medical conditions that could affect your driving.
