Part 2 Test Of Driving Ability

The eyesight test

You must be able to read in good daylight a motor vehicle registration plate containing letters and figures:

  • 79 millimetres in height and 50 millimetres wide at a distance of 26.5 metres, or
  • 79 millimetres in height and 57 millimetres wide at a distance of 27.5 metres

You can use glasses or contact lenses if you need them.

If you do not pass the eyesight test, you will not be allowed to take the driving ability part. The test will be marked as a fail and will count as one of the three attempts you're allowed to make at part two of the test.

Test of driving technique

The Approved Driving Instructor part two test is far more difficult than the learner driver test. To pass, you will need to display a very high standard of competence. You must show that you have a thorough knowledge of the principles of good driving and road safety and that you can apply them in practice.

At the start of the test, you will be asked questions on basic vehicle safety. You must satisfy the examiner on all of the following:

  • expert handling of the controls
  • use of correct road procedure
  • anticipation of the actions of other road users and then taking appropriate action
  • sound judgement of distance, speed and timing
  • consideration of the convenience and safety of other road users
  • driving in an environmentally friendly manner

The routes used for the test will cover varying road and traffic conditions. Where possible, the roads you use will include motorways or dual carriageways. The routes will cover both urban and rural conditions.

The examiner's supervisor may come along as well. You shouldn't be concerned about this as they will be watching the examiner's performance, not yours. The supervisor will not have a say in how you are tested or in your result.

The test vehicle

It is your responsibility to provide a car which is properly taxed and insured. It must be a saloon car or hatchback/estate car in good working condition and with seat belts in working order. It must be capable of the normal performance of vehicles of its type with a manual transmission, right-hand steering, a readily adjustable seat with a head restraint for a forward facing front passenger, and an adjustable interior rear view mirror for use by the examiner. The car must not display L plates.

If your vehicle does not meet the above requirements, it will not be possible to carry out the test. 

We can help you to prepare for all three parts of the qualifying exam. We can tailor a course to suit you, perhaps working around your current job, and we operate on a pay-as-you-go principle.
