Your Test Vehicle
Typically you’ll take your test in my car, however if you decide to use another, you’ll have to ensure that it is fit for purpose.
This means it has to be legally roadworthy and fully insured for you to drive.
You’ll also need to display L-plates front and rear and have an additional interior rear-view mirror for use by the examiner.
If any of the details are missed then your test will be cancelled and you’ll lose your fee. Find full details here.
During your test any faults you commit will be noted down by the examiner.
These are divided into minor/serious and dangerous. You are allowed a maximum of 15 minor faults. 16 minor faults, 1 serious or 1 dangerous and you will fail your test.
You will only be told whether you’ve passed or failed at the end, so don’t give up if you think you may have failed!
When the test has finished the examiner will go through your faults, this will give you some indication as to which area of your driving you particularly need to work on.
