The UK Driving Test makes sure a driver has a minimum standard of safety before they are allowed to drive on their own. Once the test has been passed, a driver will continue learning with their experiences and their driving will change. But would they still be able to pass the Driving Test again if they had to? In this video we will find out, as Emma has kindly agreed to drive a full test route for us. She passed her test about 6 months ago, so is used to the new test format - but has not had any extra training to help her prepare for today. We will identify any faults we see, and also monitor the total number of faults so you can see how Emma is doing.

      +M M Don't regard the speed limit as a target, we should drive at a safe speed for the conditions - so driving at 35 in a 40 is no problem. By the way, the examiner will use the car's speedometer for the purposes of the test, so ignore the GPS speed that the camera shows - as the driver wouldn't see it either at the time. Where is the junction fault you mentioned?

      Advance Driving School how about driving 35-37 at speed limit of 40? Is that a fault as well? And turning nearside instead of offside in a junction is that a serious fault?

      Why wasn't she picked up for incorrectly turning steering wheel, crossing her hands many times.? She wasn't sure how to use the indicator stick, Being aware of your environment is extremely important when driving and the use of mirror very important. I think she needs more training.

      Interesting video,I think it would have been worthwhile giving a debrief.A big concern was the blind spot checks whilst the car was moving.looking over your shoulder should not be encouraged as you are taking your eyes off the road.This was evident towards the end of the test.After leaving the roundabout the driver was checking over her left shoulder unaware the orange coloured van had stopped for the traffic lights on realising this a bit too late for my liking the driver had to brake harder than what should have been necessary this action would have a knock on affect with cars behind.This was a serious possibly dangerous manoeuvre and should have been brought to the viewers attention.

      I almost always take the inside lane in a two lane roundabout where I live, to go straight ahead. Reason is people will often pull out in front of you thinking your turning left because hardly anyone indicates.

    • Advance Driving School
      Advance Driving School In reply to Jonophilous

      But what if a driver following you thinks you are turning right and positions beside you at the Give Way line - you have no way of knowing whether they are going left or ahead - so when you need to change lane to leave the roundabout they could still be beside you and block your exit. This is why we prefer to stick to the correct lane choice and just look out for other drivers that pull out when they shouldn't.

      On a real Driving Test a real examiner may have a different opinion in these situations and choose to overlook these faults, but since the purpose of a mock test is to identify any faults we have so that we can improve our driving, we always mark any faults that we identify firmly.

      Is that the reason you marked a DF at the start for moving of safely, mirrors change of speed and following distance? Because they were not faults

      Thanks for the comment. It might seem harsh, but we always prefer to mark a mock test firmly to ensure we don’t get sloppy. The Highway Code says we should always follow the Mirror Signal Manoeuvre routine, so a real examiner would expect this to be demonstrated on a Driving Test.

      Keep an eye on mini roundabouts. Especially hidden ones that aren’t obvious. They can catch you out. Always give way to the right. Even if the person on the right sees you and is stationary. Always stop and let them go first. I almost failed cos of this. I pulled up sharp. Which wasnt ideal but apparently I would have failed if I didn’t stop and let them go first. Just a tip for anyone who may have one on their route. Ask if there is one if unsure.

      Advance Driving School In reply to L Micky

      Driving Test centres usually have a choice of 20 routes to use - so there is no point trying to memorise routes, or asking where the mini roundabouts are. To become a safe driver we must be able to look ahead and spot junctions for ourselves, and then approach them at a suitable speed. If there is poor visibility or lots of traffic we would approach very slowly so that we never have to stop suddenly. We should be ready to Give Way to traffic on our right, but if they are giving way to traffic on their right and cannot go, then we can probably keep rolling and enter the roundabout safely.

      wtf is checking your mirrors before slowing down going to help? The only time it is neccesary is when you're stopping for a red/amber light or when you're going to break harshly. People behind you have to pay attention and slow down aswell.

      about 8 days ago
    • Advance Driving School
      Advance Driving School In reply to Hoggster99

      An examiner will expect regular mirror checks throughout your drive, so that you always have an awareness of what is behind you. Then, if you are being tailgated you can brake more gently to warn following traffic that you are slowing down. Relying on following traffic to ‘pay attention’ could easily result in a rear end collision.

      As the long as the car is in the correct road position, then there will be no fault given for steering. We still recommend ‘feeding the wheel’ but it’s not compulsory.

      We should always indicate left when leaving a roundabout, to inform others what we are doing. If we don’t bother doing that - we would get faults for that instead!

      I think you are confusing driving schools with test examiners. We help people prepare for the test, and a separate examiner will decide if the required standard has been met. About 70% of our pupils do pass 1st time though, so the test isn’t as hard as you think if you are a safe driver.

      Yes, the examiner will expect us to check our mirrors to see if it's safe to change our speed. What if someone started overtaking us and we accelerated at the same time? Far better to spot what is happening and delay our acceleration until it's safe.

      It is still the recommended method of steering, but the examiner on a driving test will not mark you down for steering unless there is a loss of control or poor car positioning. How you hold or turn the steering wheel is essentially up to you.

      The blind spot isn't behind the car (the mirrors cover that area) - it's to the side of the car, just over the driver's shoulders. The Highway Code says we should look all around the car before setting off - so that's what the examiner will be looking out for.
