You may also be asked to perform an emergency stop. Generally the test will involve a variety of road conditions, from narrow town streets with parked cars and pedestrians, to major roads and dual carriageways. Your training will take you round all roads in your test area so you will be well prepared for any road that you drive on when ready to take your test.
Most importantly, we will teach you to be relaxed, and encourage you to develop observational skills, effective use of mirrors and planning the road ahead. We want to teach you to be a safe, confident and conscientious driver.

To book your
Practical Test, you must have first completed your Theory Test, or alternatively we can book it for you. We will prepare you for all that may be asked of you on the day, but the end result relies on your understanding, commitment and confidence on the day.

The current fee for the Practical Test is
£62 or £75 for Weekend Tests
Note : We will not allow you to use our car for the practical test if we do not believe you are at a suitable standard. This will ensure your safety and ultimately will save you money in training.

If you choose to use your own car for the test, it is required by law to meet the
DVSA Own Car Requirements.
