Currently you are allowed to make maximum of 15 driving faults, but no serious or dangerous faults. The same fault can be minor, serious, or dangerous, depending on the circumstances at the time. For example, rolling backwards when moving off uphill could be a minor fault if there is nothing behind you, but would be a serious fault if there was, however, if there is people behind you as you roll backwards, it becomes a dangerous fault. If you repeat the same minor fault, usually 4 times, it is considered serious, and you will fail.
Simon Bush at Britannia Driving School says: “The Driving Test is “real” driving, but also a technical exercise and an observation test, so try to be as perfect as you can.”
