If you are taking lessons with an instructor then you don't have to worry about the driving test car, as the driving school vehicle will normally meet all the DSA requirements.
If you however don't have a car, have been let down by your ADI, own an automatic and want to take the driving test in a manual gearbox vehicle, then I do offer driving test car hire for provisional licence holders.
I can provide test cover hire in the following dsa test centres: Mill Hill, Hendon, Borehamwood, Watford, Barnet, Pinner HA5 and Greenford Horsenden Lane.
My car is fully insured to cover all candidates including those on an extended driving test, and the car hire includes a one hour lesson which could be used to go over some of the driving test routes or familiarise yourself with the vehicle, which currently is a manual Toyota Yaris Diesel, I will also use this time to offer you various helpul tips to increase your chances of passing your driving test, pointing out particular difficult locations that might have failed candidates in the past.
While I can not guarantee I will be able to take you on a short notice test, there is no harm in giving me a call on 07956233032, to discuss my availability and shortly plan to offer automatic driving test car hire facilities as well.
Please note that most UK car hire companies (Hertz, Enterprise, Europa, Avis) do not allow their vehicles to be used for driving tests, and if the DSA examiner suspects it is a rental, will ask to see an insurance declaration or call the company to confirm there is a policy to cover them for the test, so using my services is much safer, and will guarantee a peace of mind and avoid the risk of losing the test booking fee.
If you are a Canadian with UK licence and a Code 078 restriction, then you will be taking a full manual driving test, and I recommend you fully use the one hour lesson included with the vehicle hire to familiarise yourself with the DSA examiner expectations, as it is not just a case of proving you know how to use a clutch on a manual transmission vehicle.
There is a £25 non refundable booking fee deposit required (this is to avoid time wasters) if booking with less than 24hrs notice.
