The Practical ‘L’ Tests is to ensure that drivers have the competence to drive cars safely and will include…

  • Car Eyesight Check
  • Car Show me tell me Questions

You will then be examined on your general driving and on one reversing exercise. The reversing exercise will be chosen from:

  • reversing around a corner
  • turning in the road
  • reverse parking either on road or into a parking bay

You will also be asked to carry out an emergency stop exercise.

As Part of the test you will be asked to carry out a 7 to 10 minute independent drive where you will be asked to follow a number of directions or road signs.
