Driving test changes: 4 December 2017

The driving test will change from Monday 4 December 2017 to include following directions from a sat nav and testing different manoeuvres.

The 4 driving test changes

1. Independent driving part of the test will increase to 20 minutes

2. Following directions from a sat nav

3. Reversing manoeuvres will be changed
The ‘reverse around a corner’ and ‘turn-in-the-road’ manoeuvres will no longer be tested, but you should still be taught them by your instructor.

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

This video shows how the test will work from 4 December 2017.
