2018 Young Driver Focus: new practical test explored

12 March 2018

Story from Road Safety GB.

The modernised test, which came into effect on 4th December 2017, is designed to ensure newly qualified drivers have the skills, knowledge and confidence to drive on their own.

The test features four key changes, including increasing the ‘independent driving’ part of the test from 10 to 20 minutes and following directions on a sat nav as an alternative to following road signs.

Lesley Young, the DVSA’s chief driving examiner, and Lynne Barrie, chairman of the ADI National Joint Council (ADINJC), will deliver presentations on the updated test.
