Practical driving test success

Practical Driving Test


  • The practical driving test costs £62 and is bookable on line. Discuss possible dates with your instructor.
  • You must have passed the theory test before taking the practical test.
  • The Chequers approach to learning to drive is designed to reach a point where both you and your instructor will believe you are ready to take your test.
  • If you have not been learning with us and have already booked your test, we advise you have a few lessons in any case to brush up on your skills. Please don’t leave booking lessons until the last minute.
  • You will have at least one mock test with your instructor as part of your lessons so that you will know what to expect during the Practical Driving Test.
  • Your instructor will explain minor and major faults to you as well as other useful hints and tips.
  • The Practical Driving Test takes about 40 minutes to complete, and is followed by a debrief which we suggest your instructor also attends.
  • When you pass your test, you must notify your insurance company straightaway.
  • We promise you that the examiners have no pass or fail quotas to meet.
