Preparing for your driving test

The test, the examiner, and you

It's been a while coming, but finally the day of your driving test is here, You've done the training, and practiced hard, so what else is there to do

Well it's nothing like a lesson, so we will have prepared you with a Mock Test. Most instructors do mock tests, but very few have any proper training to do so. That's not to say they can't make a reasonable attempt at role-playing an examiner

Here at 21st Century Driving, we have the training, and the qualifications to administer a mock test just like the real thing


The driving test lasts approx 40 minutes, will include 2 questions about your car (show me/tell me) one of which is likely to be on the move, a section of independent driving (Sat/Nav, following signs or simple instructions) and a wide variety of road types to challenge your skills

The road, weather and traffic conditions are quite random, and will be whatever the world throws at you. The random nature of these variables makes the test fair for all, as each candidate has the opportunity to choose the time and date of their test when booking

You will be asked to do one reverse manoeuvre, from parallel parking, parking on the right hand side of the road, and bay parking (forwards and reversing out, or reversing in. The test will also include serveral instances of parking on the left, then rejoining traffic and you may also be asked to do an emergency stop
