The test may include the Emergency Stop, and will include one of the following manoeuvres that you have been doing during your lessons:
Bay Park – either by driving in and reversing out, or reversing into a bay and driving out
Pull up on the right hand side of the road, then reverse two car lengths, and drive on to rejoin the traffic
You’ll be asked to pull over on the left several times and then drive on to rejoin the traffic.
During the test you’ll take in a variety of road types, from housing estates to back roads to dual carriageways.
Then when you arrive back at the test centre you’ll get your result there and then.
You’ll be offered a debrief where any faults recorded will be explained to you.
If you pass, you’ll be given a copy of your test report and pass certificate at the end of your test which means you’re free to drive unsupervised as long as your car is insured correctly and road worthy.
If you don’t pass, the Examiner will explain why, and give you a copy of your test report. Bring this to your next lesson so your MINT Driving Instructor can help your work on the faults so you’re ready to tackle it again.
