Next part of practical test is to ensure you are familar with a set of basic car maintenance and safety issues that you should check as a responsible car and road user when you totally independent and  planning to use a your car.


Once you have successful completed eye sight and show/tell questions you will be explained about the test and how long it will be approximately  and you are allowed to repeat or ask examiner the directions of route.  It is then up to you to ensure you maintain safe standards of driving that you practiced with your instructor and when your return to the test center the examiner will ask you to switch off engine and then will provide a brief summary of the test and inform if you have passed or failed. 

Examiners decision is final and you can only appeal on the conduct of the test.  If you pass you are issued with pass certificate and both parts of your licence are retained and your  full UK licence will be sent to your home address.

If you fail you will be given a brief summary of areas of weakness and list of each section where you can refer to find out on exactly what the exmainer felt you could improve on your next attempt and what areas your instructor will need to help you gain more practice.  It is important to note that the examiner is looking for DVSA standard of driving and if anything is not maintained within 39 to 49 minutes of the test and only 1 incompetence shows you will still fail if it is serious or dangerous error as when driving independently we dont get a second chance and its your life and actions that will make difference to how safe you drive.
