What happens during the test in the Windsor area.

There are 5 parts to the driving test:
• an eyesight check
• ‘show me, tell me’ vehicle safety questions
• general driving ability
• reversing your vehicle
• independent driving
The test is the same for both manual and automatic cars.

How long the test lasts

You’ll drive for around 40 minutes.
Eyesight check
You’ll have to read a number plate from a distance of:
• 20 metres for vehicles with a new-style number plate
• 20.5 metres for vehicles with an old-style number plate

Show me, tell me’ questions

You’ll be asked 2 vehicle safety questions known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions.
You’ll be asked the:
• ‘tell me’ question at the start of your test, before you start driving
• ‘show me’ question while you’re driving

You’ll be asked the:

• ‘tell me’ question at the start of your test, before you start driving
• ‘show me’ question while you’re driving

Your general driving ability

You’ll drive in various road and traffic conditions, but not on motorways.
The examiner will give you directions that you should follow. Driving test routes are not published, so you cannot check them before your test.
Pulling over at the side of the road
You’ll be asked to pull over and pull away during your test, including:
• normal stops at the side of the road
• pulling out from behind a parked vehicle
• a hill start

Reversing your vehicle

The examiner will ask you to do one of the following exercises:
• parallel park at the side of the road
• park in a parking bay – either by driving in and reversing out, or reversing in and driving out (the examiner will tell you which you have to do)
• pull up on the right-hand side of the road, reverse for around 2 car lengths, and rejoin the traffic

Independent driving

You’ll have to drive for about 20 minutes by following either:
• directions from a sat nav
• traffic signs

The examiner will tell you which you have to follow.

They’ll set the sat nav up for you. You can’t use your own sat nav.
If you can’t see traffic signs
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.

Going off the route

The examiner won’t give you a fault for taking a wrong turning.
They’ll help you get back on the route if you do.
If you make mistakes during your test
You can carry on if you make a mistake. It might not affect your test result if it’s not serious.
The examiner will only stop your test if they think your driving is a danger to other road users.
