How to pass your practical driving test (tips etc)

The practical driving test is more about the safety aspect of your driving skills and abilities. It will first involve having your eyesight checked so that the examiners can determine if you’re able to see the road clearly enough to be acceptable. Do not worry if you don’t have perfect vision because you can still use eyeglasses or contact lenses on this part of the exam so you can see clearer.

If you are able to pass the exam and get your license while using corrective lenses, the fact that you needed them will be indicated somewhere on your license. This means if you ever get pulled over by the authorities in the future, make sure you are wearing your corrective lenses or else you might get penalized more for not wearing them.

Most of the practical exam will be answering safety questions that the examiner asks you and then driving in your vehicle with them. Basically, the examiner will ask you what safety checks you should perform before driving the vehicle and how to tend to any maintenance issues that the vehicle may need. Their questions consist of “show me” questions and “tell me” questions. For example, the examiner may want to see if you know how to check the oil of your vehicle. So, they’ll ask you to show them where the oil filler cap is located. After you do that, you’ll then tell them how you would check the level of oil after removing the cap.

You need to have perfect knowledge of basic safety inspections and how to perform a vehicle safety check. The examiner might not necessarily test you on every aspect of safety, but you should be prepared for anything because the questions will be random. Therefore, make sure you have studied your academic literature on vehicle safety checks and inspections because that knowledge will be crucial in passing this part of the exam.

The next part of the practical driving test is the actual driving part. This is where you get in a vehicle with your examiner and they give you directions on where to go as you drive. They will be watching for how you handle the vehicle under various driving conditions, such as heavy traffic, highway driving, and so on. Be prepared to be tested on your reversing skills because they’ll likely have you reverse the vehicle into a parking space or even around a corner.

Lastly, there is an independent driving test where you drive on your own and go in a series of directions that are given to you by your examiner beforehand. This is different than the first driving part because here you are getting all the directions at once before you start driving. Before, you were getting the directions in real-time as you were driving the examiner around. The purpose of the independent driving test is so the examiner can see that you can handle a driving scenario without anyone telling you what to do in the vehicle. After it is over, they will ask for your feedback about the experience. You have a high chance of failing, but as long as you give it your all – don’t worry about it. I used a test scanner to find multiple tests before I actually passed.

Overall, you need to prepare for this test by getting as much driving practice on the road as possible. You need to feel completely comfortable behind the wheel and performing all types of driving. The examiner watches for every little mistake that you make, including how long you wait at stop signs. So, keep safety in mind at all times and you should have a good chance of passing this practical test.
