When should I take my Driving Test?

Knowing when to take your test can be difficult. There are some learners that think they are ready from the moment they hop into the car for the first time, and others who don’t have the confidence to take the leap from learner to full licence holder.
To pass the driving test you must be able to drive safely in different road and traffic conditions, and be able to show that you know the Highway Code by the way you drive.
The national standard for driving cars tells you everything you must be able to do to pass your driving test. Only take your test when you can do everything without instruction.
One of the best ways to know when you’re ready to take your test is if your instructor approves. Of course there are times when you may feel ready but your instructor hasn’t given you the go ahead – that’s Ok too! Speak to your instructor and let them know how your feeling and they’ll take it through with you.
