Independent Driving in the driving Test October 2014 Video

The DVSA made changes to the driving test on october 2010, when they introduced a 10 minute independent driving element requiring the test candidate to navigate to a predetermined point by either following a series of directions, road signs or a combination of both.

This video shows what you might be asked to do by the dsa examiner, and how an almost test standard learner pupil of mine reacted to the independent driving element of a simulated mock test.

Please note that this not one of the actual driving test routes that might be used for the new practical car test.
To accomodate this new independent driving element of the test, candidates will only be required to carry out one driving test maneuver from october 2010.



It is not at the moment expected that the time for tests will be increased, but there is a great chance this might happen due to the likelihood of candidates going the wrong way and examiners might have to get them back on course, you are not going to be penalised for getting 'lost', as long as you continue to remain safe.

DSA Examiner Driving Test Routes

As an instructor over the years I have seen some very good drivers get tripped up at some tricky places on some of the routes by examiners in the NW London area, so I have made these tutorial videos to cover these situations.

Each video covers what I have found out to the toughest route, and has additional tips on other places or things that you should be aware as a driving test candidate. These are offered as complimentary preparation materials to your lessons or private practice sessions.
