Try to RELAX!! The Examiner will call your name, Check your Driving Licence and you will have to sign a declaration of insurance and Health on a slip of paper which will be supplied. After an eye test which involves reading a vehicle number plate at a minimum distance of 20.5 metres, you will be asked to answer a 'Tell Me' question rergarding a simple vehicle safety check. The Examiner will then lead you over too the car, check the vehicle is roadworthy, then ask you if you would like more information on what the test involves. If you have any questions....AsK!!
Then you will be on the road for about 38-40 minutes and will have to carry out a 20 Minute Independant Drive. This will consist of either, following a route from a Sat Nav or, Road Signs. You will also be asked to carry out a 'Show Me' excercise, operating one of the Ancillary controls.(EG:Wash windscreen). One Exercise involving reversing, and maybe an emergency stop.
