New Driver Full Mock Test | 2020 UK Driving Test


The UK Driving Test makes sure a driver has a minimum standard of safety before they are allowed to drive on their own. Once the test has been passed, a driver will continue learning with their experiences and their driving will change. But would they still be able to pass the Driving Test again if they had to? In this video we will find out, as Emma has kindly agreed to drive a full test route for us. She passed her test about 6 months ago, so is used to the new test format – but has not had any extra training to help her prepare for today. We will identify any faults we see, and also monitor the total number of faults so you can see how Emma is doing.

Also, we love to read your comments – so please scroll down and let us know what you think! At this point, Emma has 4 Driver Faults for Mirrors, Signalling. Since this is an inherent fault That is regularly made, we will stop counting this as a Driver Fault any more, and instead mark it as a Serious Fault. Even though we are allowed up to 15 Driver (or Minor) Faults before failing if we are given 3 or more in the same category the Examiner may convert them into a Serious Fault – which will result in a test failure. The amount of faults required before this happens will depend on the level of seriousness of the fault concerned. Emma now has 4 Driver Faults for Mirrors, Change of Speed. As before, we will stop counting this as a Driver Fault, and now mark it as another Serious Fault. Even though Emma didn’t pass our test route today, it has been interesting to see how her driving has developed. Her general planning and awareness has improved, and she is more confident with her car control and judgement. This is great to see, but she has clearly lapsed into regular minor faults into regular minor faults typical of everyday drivers – such as checking her mirrors after indicating or changing her speed, not beforehand. This is the sort of small error that all drivers should beware of making, as one day a small fault like this could put them in danger. To prevent this, we always try to follow the Mirror, Signal, Manoeuvre routine to ensure we make safe decisions when driving.
