The Driving Test Is Changing

The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency have announced that that the "New Driving Test" will come into force on the 4th of December 2017.

There are 4 main changes to the driving test:

1. An increase to the 'Independent Driving' part of the test from 10 minutes to 20 minutes.
2. Asking the test candidate to follow directions given by Sat Nav as an alternative to following road signs.
3. Replacing current manoeuvres such as 'reverse around a corner' with more realistic scenarios, such as driving into a parking bay and reversing back out.
4. Asking 1 or 2 vehicle safety questions while the candidate is driving.

Feedback on the changes

The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency received over 3,900 responses to the public consultation on the changes to the test.

88% agreed with increasing the length of the independent driving part of the test
79% agreed with the plans to change the reversing manoeuvres that are tested
78% agreed with the test candidate being asked a 'Show Me' questions while they are driving
71% agreed with asking the test candidate to follow directions from a Sat Nav

Representatives of the Driver Training Industry are also supportive of the changes.
