The new test

Well, the new test has arrived and was rolled out from 4th December (see my earlier post). The general consensus is that the test is easier, although that wasn’t the idea! Most of my learners would rather pull up on the right than reverse around a corner.

Following a sat nav is also preferred to being directed by the examiner. It will be interesting to see how the pass rate has changed when the DVSA brings out some statistics.

Motorway lessons for learners

After years of deliberation, the DVSA has finally announced that from 2018, learner drivers will be able to take lessons on motorways. They must be in a dual controlled car and must be accompanied by a fully qualified driving instructor (ADI). However, motorway driving will not be tested on driving tests.
