About the Practical Test
The purpose of the practical Driving Test is to find out whether you can drive safely, without supervision on the roads.
You will not pass unless you can show the examiner that you have the ability to do this.
Once you have passed your Theory Test you should discuss with your instructor about when you should apply for a Practical Test.
The Practical Driving Test is relatively straightforward. It lasts approximately 40 minutes and is conducted from your local driving test centre by a DSA examiner.
Test routes are designed to be as uniformed as possible and include a range of typical road and traffic conditions.
Your local Driving Instructor or the DSA Office can help with your test application.
