From Monday 4th. December there will be 4 changes to the car driving test, these are:
Independent driving time will increase to 20 minutes
You will be required to follow directions from a sat nav.
You will no longer be tested on the turn in the road and the reverse around a corner but you will be asked to carry out one of three possible manoeuvres, these being a parallel park at the side of the road, park in a bay by either reversing in and driving out or by driving in and reversing out. The other manoeuvre will be to pull up on the right hand side of the road, reverse back for 2 car lengths then rejoin the traffic.
You will still be required to answer 2 vehicle safety questions, but now one will be before you start driving and one whilst driving.
