Independent driving test
Your practical driving test will include a 10 minute section of independent driving.
During your test you will have to drive independently by either following:
- a series of directions
- traffic signs
- a combination of both
To help you understand where you are going, the examiner may show you a diagram (see example below).
It doesn’t matter if you do not remember every direction, or if you go the wrong way – that can happen to the most experienced drivers.
Independent driving is not a test of your orientation and navigation skills. Driving independently means making your own decisions – this includes deciding when it is safe and appropriate to ask for confirmation about where you are going.
