You’ll pass your practical test if you make:
– 15 or fewer driving faults
– No serious or dangerous faults
Once the driving test has ended, the examiner will ask whether you want to call your instructor over. The examiner will then tell you whether you passed or fail your test and give you some feedback on how you did during the test.
There are 3 types of faults that could be marked during your test:
-A dangerous fault – this would involve actual danger to you, the examiner, the public or property
– A serious fault – this could potentially become dangerous
– A driving fault – this is not potentially dangerous, but if you make the same fault throughout your test it could become a serious fault
If you pass your test, the examiner will give you a pass certificate and will immediately take your provisional licence to get your full licence sent out to you automatically. You do not need to wait for your full licence to arrive before driving; you can drive straight after passing your test.
If you don’t pass, you will have to wait another 10 working days before you can take another test.
