Driving Test Day
Ask your instructor about the payment during your TEST day! Make sure you do this as soon as you book for your test or before.
The driving test day is rather unique in that it’s not likely you will have another test day like it. By this stage, you should have received sufficient training preferably by a qualified driving instructor and be ready to site the practical driving test.
Even when the driving test day comes, pretty much all learner drivers ask the question am I ready for the driving test? Your instructor be taking you for your driving test if you are not ready, so this in itself should provide you with a sufficient answer.
If however you have a particular reason that you want to cancel the driving test, you must provide the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with a minimum of 3 working days (including Saturdays) notice. Unfortunately you will not be able to get a refund or reschedule unless this is provided.
DRIVING TEST DAY PREPARATION
Wear comfortable clothes and have a bite to eat and drink before the test to give your brain food. Don’t drink too much however as you don’t want to be needing the toilet just before or during your test. Some driving test centres don’t actually have toilets believe it or not, which certainly doesn’t help nervous learner drivers.
Ensure you take both parts of your provisional driving licence; the plastic card and it’s paper counterpart. The driving test will not be conducted if you do not provide the examiner with these. Ideally, also take your theory test pass letter and the conformation for the practical test booking. These 2 documents are not as essential however and the test should still go ahead if you do not provide these.
Your driving instructor should pick you up around 1 hour before the scheduled time of the test. It’s not usually ideal to have too much more driving than this before the test as you need to remain fresh for the test itself. This 1 hour of driving should be used as a warm up lesson only and to go over any areas that need minor practice. Again, try not to focus on any one particular area too heavily as stress and desperation is likely to make it go wrong.
