The Practical Car Test lasts about 40 minutes.
After signing the Test Marking sheet you will do an eyesight check
in the car park and answer two vehicle safety check questions.
If you get one or both questions wrong this counts as one minor
fault. You are allowed 15 minor faults but no major ones.
During the drive you may do the Controlled Stop - it used to be called
the Emergency Stop - this is now only done on average one in three
You will also do one manoeuvre and pulling up and moving off a few
times. Another part of the test is around 10 minutes of Independent Driving. This could consist of being shown some diagrams, following road signs or a combination of both.
