The day of your practical test arrives and you are feeling nervous. You have had lessons but feel ready to take on the examiners, but are you ready?

When you arrive at the test centre you need more than just your provisional licence. When the examiner calls your name you should have the following items: (1) Both parts of your driving licence – the photo card and the counterpart. (2) A vehicle which complies with the DSA (Driving Standards Agency) guidelines, most pupils will bring their driving instructors car which clearly displays L-plates and is an insured and licensed vehicle. (3) Your theory test certificate. (4) Your letter or copy of your email confirming the test.

And for those that have the old paper licence, you will need to ensure you bring your passport with you as proof of id – no other identification will be accepted

Without any one of these items, it could result in the DSA cancelling your test and result in you losing your fee. You could then face an agonising wait to re-book your test for another date.

Natasha Simper of Britannia Driving School said: “With the correct documentation and the experience and expertise gained from your Britannia Driving School Instructor there is no reason why you should not pass your test and go on to be a safe and competent driver for life.”
