Independent driving

Independent driving is component of practical driving test and was introduced in autumn, 2010.

The section of independent driving lasts just 10 minutes without instructions from your examiner. Take into consideration that lack of instructions will be only during independent driving section, during other sections of driving test you will continue to receive directions. To help you orientate where you are going, the examiner may show you a diagram of route. It does not matter if you go the wrong way. Independent driving is not a test of your orientation and navigation skills. It is designed to test combination of your practical driving skills and driving theory and ability to make your own decisions about road situations and safe driving.

See yourself what is independent driving by watching video produced by Driving Standards Agency.
