The New test (starts on 4th December 2017)


The driving test for cars will change from Monday 4th December 2017 in England, Scotland and Wales.


The driving test changes are

1. Independent driving part of the test will increase from 10 to 20 minutes and most candidates will be asked to follow directions from a sat nav.


The examiner will provide the sat nav (a TomTom Start 52) and set it up. You won’t need to set the route - the examiner will do this for you. So, it doesn’t matter what make or model of sat nav you practise with.

You’ll be able to ask the examiner for confirmation of where you’re going if you’re not sure. It won’t matter if you go the wrong way unless you make a fault while doing it.


One in 5 driving tests won’t use a sat nav. You’ll need to follow traffic signs instead as directed by the examiner.


2.Manoeuvres will change.

The ‘reverse around a corner’ and ‘turn-in-the-road’ (referred to as the “3 point turn”) manoeuvres will no longer be tested, but the DVSA advise that they are still taught.


You’ll be asked to do 1 of 3 possible reversing manoeuvres:





3. Answering a vehicle safety question while you’re driving

The examiner will ask you 2 vehicle safety questions during your driving test - these are known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions.


You’ll be asked the:


‘tell me’ question (where you explain how you’d carry out a safety task) at the start of your test, before you start driving

‘show me’ question (where you show how you’d carry out a safety task) while you’re driving - for example, showing how to wash the windscreen using the car controls and wipers (see SMTM for more information)
