Practical Driving Test Trials

Following the announcement that the driving test is to be updated, the DVSA have announced that they will shortly begin research into how these changes could be implemented.

The research, which is to be conducted at 20 test centres, will see how the driving test could be made more realistic and better prepare drivers for modern day driving. This will involve trialling a new version of the driving test where candidates will use a satellite navigation system, carry out different manoeuvres, answer ‘show me tell me’ questions on the move.

Amongst the 20 trial locations is Mitcham test centre, one used by some Britannia instructors with a few of our instructors looking to get involved in the research and help assess whether the changes will be an improvement to the driving test.
