Driving Test to Include Sat-Navs

Since the introduction of independent driving in the driving test, many have pondered the question of when the sat-nav will be brought in as a compulsory part of the practical test?

Well it seems like it may be sooner than many people think. Under plans for a new “shake up” of the test, learner drivers will be expected to follow directions on a sat nav in an attempt to mirror real world driving situations.

However if you’re not a fan of satellite navigation, don’t fear – The revised test will only be in place at 20 driving test centres across the UK, as a means of testing the practicality of the amendment before a full launch across the country.
