About the Practical Test

The aim of the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) is to produce a test format that can be applied consistently throughout the U.K.
However it can not be exactly the same everywhere.
London traffic conditions cannot be reproduced in the heart of Scotland, and while it's easy to be able to find a hill for hill starts in Wales, this cannot be done in the Fens.
So Examiners have to take the areas as they find it, but the same standards are applied nationally, with the content of the test varying from area to area.

In the UK Learners driving a car must hold a valid provisional licence.
They must be supervised by someone at least 21 years old who holds a full licence and has held one for at least three years.

Driving test changes from December 2017
The CAR driving test in England, Scotland and Wales will change from Monday 4 December 2017. Find out more about changes to the practical driving test

Should you take your instructor on your driving test?

Driving examiners will ask you, at the time you take your test, if they would like your instructor (or another observer - preferably the person who has taught them to drive) to sit in on your test and listen to the feedback at the end.
It is purely your own choice.
Watch this 2passvideo and to help you with the right choice.
