The DVSA have announced that the new practical driving test will be trialled at 20 test centres in the UK as part of new research aimed at improving and developing the practical driving test. This proposed new test will see various changes and the new trials aim to ascertain the effectiveness of the proposed changes to the driving test. It must be stressed that only the 20 test centres named will be affected.
Part of the new driving test will include changes such as:
- Using a Sat Nav
- Different manoeuvres
- Answering 'show me tell me' questions on the move whilst in the car
It is important to note that you will be doing this new driving test only if your driving instructor is taking part in the trials. To avoid any confusion in this make sure you speak to your driving instructor.
The 20 driving test centres for the trial are:
Cheetham Hill (Manchester
Kings Heath (Birmingham)
If you are an ADI who operates out of any of these test centres and you would like to take part in the trials you can do so by contacting the DVSA via firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
