What are driving test minors?

A minor fault (or driving fault) is not potentially dangerous, but if you make the same fault repeatedly throughout your driving test it could then become a serious fault. You are allowed up to 15 minor faults on your driving test, but more than this will mean an automatic failure.
Minor faults are anything that causes an inconvenience to another road user but is unlikely to cause an accident.
Remember a mistake you make on your driving test could actually be a minor fault, so keep doing your very best to the end of your driving test.
