What are driving test faults?

There are 3 types of faults you can make on driving test:

  • A dangerous fault – this involves actual danger to you, the examiner, the public or property
  • A serious fault – something potentially dangerous
  • A driving fault – this is not potentially dangerous, but if you keep making the same fault, it could become a serious fault.
  • The most common faults are:
  • Observations at junctions
  • Use of mirrors
  • Steering
  • Turning right
  • Moving off
  • Positioning
  • Response to traffic lights
  • Reverse manoeuvres
