Practical Driving Test (Car) Page 2

Since October 2010 You will only be asked to do ONE of the following 4 manoeuvres:-
  • Reverse into a limited opening either to the right or left / under control / with due regard for other road users.
  • Turn in the road by means of forward and reverse gears / under control / with due regard for other road users.
  • Reverse park in reverse gear / under control / with due regard for other road users.
  • Reverse into a parking bay at the Driving Test centre car park.
During the test you will be asked to do a new excersise called "Independent driving" 
This is tasking you to drive for about 10 minutes, either following a series of directions, following traffic signs, or a combination of both.
To help you be clear about where they’re going, the examiner can show you a diagram of the route they wish you to take.
Right that's all over its back to the test Centre. The moment of truth. The Examiner faces you and tells you that the test is over . Then "I'm pleased to tell you that you have passed" or "I'm sorry you haven't passed". Either way, you will receive a certificate.
The PASS certificate (DSA10) has to be signed and sent to the DVLA in Swansea, together with your provisional licence which is surrendered then a "Full" licence is issued. The examiner will keep both parts of your licence and it will be sent it off to the DVLA for you.

Less welcome is the alternative 'Statement of Failure' form, (DL25C)on which the Examiner will have marked with a '\' in the columns.
You will also be given another application form to apply for your next test!
