Driving Instructor in Portsmouth.

NEW ELEMENT for the Driving Test 4th October 2010.

The driving standards agency has a new element to the Practical driving Test,
Candidates will be asked to drive without step by step instruction from their examiner for about 10 minutes showing they can make decisions for themselves in unfamiliar contexts. This will mean following a series of verbal directions, following traffic signs or a combination of both. To help them visualise the directions the examiner may also show you a simple diagram.

If a candidate goes off route the test is not terminated. It is neither a fault either. There will also be a reduced number of manoeuvres on the test. An examiner may also intervene due to poor signage. The examiner will tell you to continue ahead if this happens.
