The Driving Test Leeds
So the time has come for you to book and take your practical driving test. The Driving Standards Agency recommends that most learners take at least 45 hours of professional driving tuition lessons and at least 20 hours with friends and family. The average number of driving lessons is currently 35 hours.
As all learner drivers are different, some will pass more quickly than others. Once you have reached the standard to take your driving test your driving instructor will inform you.
Your driving instructor will carry out some mock driving tests with you, so you can become familiar with what is expected on the day of your test. Between yourself and your driving instructor you need to decide where you will be taking your driving test.
Our driving instructors have a very thorough knowledge of all of test routes at these all driving test centres. You can take your practical driving test at any centre if you discuss with your driving instructor, prior to booking. Even though you shouldn't need to know the routes, it is advantageous to know some of the tricky roads. Our driving instructors can make you aware of these roads, so when you take your driving test you will be familiar with the roads.
Current prices for the practical driving test can be found on our Prices page.
Your driving test will start with an eyesight check and some vehicle safety questions. The driving part of your test will last about 40 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including carrying out one of the manouvere excersises.
You will also be asked to do the independant part of the test for 10 minutes. You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test. Our driving instructors will be more than happy to book the practical test for you, if you would prefer.
