Driving Test Changes December 2017 Bristol / Bath
DVSA have announced the driving test will change on 4th December 2017
All tests conducted from this date will be under the new format. We will begin training students to this new test format for all intensive driving courses booked from Autumn 2017 onwards. Any students who might require a retest from December will undergo this format even although their original training (perhaps with another driving school) was done under the existing pre-December style.
WHAT DOES THE NEW TEST INVOLVE ?
The 4 main changes to the test are:
|1. the independent part of the driving test will increase to 20 minutes|
|2. most candidates will be asked to follow directions from a sat nav|
|3. the revensing manoeuvres will be changed|
|4. answering a vehicle safety question while you are driving|
DETAILS OF THE 4 MAJOR CHANGES ARE LISTED BELOW (reproduced from DVSA news brief)
