If you get a show me tell me question wrong, you'll receive a fault but this won't automatically result in you failing your driving test - you have to pick up more than 15 minor faults in order to fail.
As your driving test examiner will ask you to carry out one manoeuvre selected at random, it's important that you can effectively and with confidence show all 4 manoeuvres.
The examiner will ask you one 'tell me' question at the start of the driving test before you start driving, where you'd have to explain how you'd carry out a safety task. You'll also be asked one 'show me' question where you'd actually have to show them how you'd carry out a safety task while you're driving.
- Be on time. ...
- Have a lesson beforehand. ...
- Check you have everything you need. ...
- Use your instructor's car. ...
- Take your instructor along for reassurance. ...
- Choose where you want to take your test. ...
- Get to know your test routes. ...
- Exaggerate those mirror checks.
You'll get one driving fault (sometimes called a 'minor') if you get one or both questions wrong. You'll fail your driving test if your driving is dangerous or potentially dangerous while you answer the 'show me' question.
Commonly known as the Show Me Tell Me driving test questions, failure to answer 1 or all of these questions will result in just one driving test minor.
Yes you can fail your driving test on a manoeuvre if you do something wrong, for example poor observations, speed, being in the wrong position or mounting the kerb.
No they won't know. I failed first time (grumpy examiner, 12 minors 1 major which even my instructor said was a rubbish excuse for a fail, anyway not bitter anymore) and then the second time my examiner was lovely and chatty and much more relaxed. I got the same manoeuvre the second time too and passed with 1 minor.
The average learner needs 20 hours of practice to pass the driving test, in addition to 45 hours of driving lessons. Once you've started learning, ask your instructor for advice about when you are ready to start practising between lessons.
- When can you overtake on the left? ...
- What is meant by a solid white line in the centre of the road? ...
- What does a broken yellow line mean? ...
- What does double broken white lines along the centre of the road mean? ...
- At a stop sign that has no white line, where should you stop?
Put simply, to pass your Practical Driving Test, you must have 15 or less Driving Test faults and no serious or dangerous faults.
- Tell me when you need to switch to rear fog lights and how you would turn them on. ...
- Tell me how you check the rear brake lights are working. ...
- Tell me where you can find your car's recommended tyre pressure. ...
- Tell me how you check the tyres to see if they have sufficient tyre tread.
- Tell yourself you're ready. ...
- Keep it a secret. ...
- Don't skip meals. ...
- Pretend it's a mock. ...
- Arrive at the test centre in good time and make sure your diary is free. ...
- Don't do too much on test day. ...
- Stay off the caffeine. ...
- Go to the lavatory.
Males are 50% likely to pass their practical, whereas females are more likely to fail with a pass rate of only 43%.
You can't fail your driving test for answering a 'tell me' question incorrectly. Once you have started driving, your driving examiner will ask you one of the 'show me' questions. These questions require you operate one of the vehicle's controls while driving.
The examiner will look to see that you: Make good observations, in all directions, before emerging. Assess the speed of other vehicles accurately. Take advantage of safe gaps as they arise.
Not checking mirrors frequently enough
Again, the examiner will determine whether the lack of observation made completing the manoeuvre potentially dangerous to you, other drivers or pedestrians. Failing to make the necessary observations at junctions is the most common cause of failing a test outright.
Car (class 1) driver licence tests
The test is 60 minutes long and includes 45 minutes of drive time. The remaining 15 minutes is used to check the safety of the vehicle prior to driving and to provide feedback.
Talk with your examiner if it'll help with your nerves, but do not let it distract you. The examiner will gently let you know if you need to pipe down and focus more on the test. If you want to be quiet and just concentrate on your driving, that's fine too. The examiner will understand and will not think you're rude.
Some examples of minor faults include: Stalling, or the incorrect use of the clutch and handbrake.
Your handbrake should only be used once you've stopped moving. While you'll usually apply it by pulling a lever, in some newer cars, you activate the handbrake using a small button. This button will, again, usually be located near the gearstick. Some extremely advanced cars even have automatic handbrakes.
If you really are dry steering to excess during the driving test and thoroughly going to town on ripping up your tyres, you may receive a minor fault from the driving examiner, more so that they can explain to you the potential issues associated with such bad driving habits.
It is also, however, fairly common for drivers to pick up a serious fault on such manoeuvres. A complete misjudgement or significant loss of control will count as a serious fault and a test fail. So make sure you're comfortable with parallel parking before booking in your test.
It's well-known among driving instructors as the driving test superfood, for the following reasons – bananas are full of B vitamins, which help calm the nerves. They contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into seratonin, the 'happy hormone' – which will keep your mood upbeat.
“Examiners are never given a target pass rate and every test is assessed on its own merits.” It is a common urban legend that examiners have to fail a certain percentage of tests a month, with overly confident students often believing their failed test was unfair or 'fixed'.
Most driving test examiners are really nice people and they have to pass a test during their training to make sure they will get on with people.
Frequency of lessons
Continuity of driving lessons is really important. The more often you're behind the wheel the better. Between 2 and 4 hours of private lessons per week is recommended. You're also likely to progress more quickly if you have two-hour lessons each time.
Generally speaking and for most people learning to drive, 2 hour lessons are more beneficial than 1 hour lessons. There are a variety of reasons for this which include: Reduced learning time overall (can reduce by a third) Reduced costs to the learner (2 hour sessions are reduced prices)
Weekly driving lessons is the typical method that most learners choose for learning to drive. It usually takes around 30 to 40 hours to reach test standard. 2 x 1.5 hour lessons per week should allow you to reach test standard within around 2 to 3 months depending on your ability.
- Ensure you've taken enough lessons. ...
- Get a good night's sleep the night before your driving test. ...
- Eat right. ...
- Revisit your theory questions. ...
- Remind yourself of the most common faults. ...
- Get to know the possible driving test routes. ...
- Make sure you have your documents ready.
Making sure there is no-one behind you, accelerate to around 30mph and then brake to a stop. The brake pedal should depress smoothly, without pulsing or juddering. If it is safe to do so, you can also conduct this test at higher speeds. If your brakes do judder or pulsate, the problem may lie with the rotors.
There are 40 questions in the category A and B tests and you have to answer 35 questions correctly to be successful. You have 45 minutes to answer the 40 questions in the test. You can find out more from theorytest.ie.
Indeed, Cha Sa-soon, age 69, estimated that it cost her well over $10,000 to finally pass the South Korea drivers' test. Of course, she took it 960 times before finally passing in 2010 and now holds the world's record for most failed attempts.
When reversing to the right, keep your right blinker on, when reversing to the left, keep your left blinker on. The general rule is to indicate in the opposite of the direction you are reversing. The same applies when reversing out of parking, indicate the opposite direction of where you intend to go.
a dangerous fault - this involves actual danger to you, the examiner, the public or property. a serious fault - something potentially dangerous. a driving fault - this is not potentially dangerous, but if you keep making the same fault, it could become a serious fault.
In total there are 19 Show Me Tell Me questions, but the examiner is restricted to a list of 12 possible combinations of questions that they can ask you on your test. If you give the wrong answer for one or both questions, you'll be marked with one driving fault.
The theory test consists of two parts. First, the applicants must answer 40 multiple-choice questions based on the information in the Highway Code. Then, they'll get a hazard perception test (a video test about spotting hazards on the road).
Part of the test will include a reversing exercise (reverse bay parking, pulling up on the right-hand side of the road and reversing 2 car lengths or driving forward into a car park bay then reversing out). You'll only carry out one manoeuvre. You may also be asked to carry out an emergency stop.
There are 4 possible manoeuvre on the driving test. Turn in the road and reverse round a corner are no longer requested by examiners.
How long the test lasts. You'll drive for around 40 minutes. You'll drive for around 70 minutes if you're taking an extended driving test because you've been banned from driving.
The four possible manoeuvres are pulling up on the right, forward parking into a bay, reverse parking into a bay and parallel parking. Straight reverse, hitting the kerb and road camber are additional guides to help.
The test lasts about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on traffic conditions.
Put simply, to pass your Practical Driving Test, you must have 15 or less Driving Test faults and no serious or dangerous faults.
- Reversing around a corner.
- Turn-in-the-road/three point turn.
- Driving forward into a parking bay.
- Reversing in a straight line.
- Parking close to the curb.
- Navigating a roundabout.
- Emergency stop.
- Pulling up on the right of the road.
Many learners can be confused about the emergency stop and whether it is a manoeuvre required during the driving test or not. The emergency stop is an additional manoeuvre that you may be asked to perform on top of one of the other manoeuvres in the driving test.
A three-point turn used to be included as one of the three possible reversing manoeuvres in practical driving tests until it was removed in December 2017. However, the ability to turn in the road is still an important driving skill to have.
How many times can you fail your test in the UK? There is no limit to how many times you can sit the test, so don't worry if you fail. The record for the highest number of fails is 42 for the practical and a whopping 158 times for a failed driving theory test!
- Chat to your instructor about how you feel if you need reassurance.
- Practice any manoeuvres which you think need a little more work and focus. ...
- Ask your instructor if you should take any extra lessons to focus on things you find tricky.
The night before the driving test
Get plenty of sleep the night before, if you can. This'll help you focus during the test. If you're tired, you run the risk of your reactions being slower than usual. So get those ZZZs in!
The hill start is also included in the practical driving test. Your examiner will ask you to pull over to the side of the road and pull away again, including normal stops at the roadside, pulling out from behind a parked vehicle, and a hill start. You may also have to perform an emergency stop.
- You do not need prompts from your driving instructor. ...
- You do not make silly mistakes when you're driving. ...
- You pass mock driving tests. ...
- You can control your nerves. ...
- Your driving instructor agrees you're ready.
In 80% of tests, the examiner will ask the candidate to follow directions from a sat nav, so it's a really good idea to brush up on your sat nav usage ahead of time. In the other 20% of tests, candidates will be asked to follow traffic signs instead.
