How is the driving test marked?

Your driving examiner will fill in the driving test marking sheet when you take your test, and give you a copy at the end of the test.
The examiner will use the DL25 marking sheet for driving tests.
Pass Mark
You’ll pass your driving test if you make no more than 15 minor faults ( sometimes called minors ), and have no dangerous faults ( sometimes called serious ).

If you pass your driving test the examiner will tell you what faults you made, if any and give us a pass certificate. The examiner will also ask you if you want your full licence to be sent to you automatically, give the examiner your provisional licence if you want to do this.
You must apply for your full licence within two years of passing your test if you don’t want to get your licence automatically.
