In order to get a full GB driving licence for a category B vehicle (or, put more simply, a car!) you will need to pass two driving tests:
The theory test must be passed before you can apply to take your practical test. It is a test of your knowledge of all aspects of driving.
Advice on how to prepare for the multiple choice and hazard perception parts of your driving theory test.
The practical test is a test of your ability to drive a car without assistance. It covers a range of situations and road conditions and involves demonstrating ability to manoeuvre the car safely.
Part of the practical driving test is to be asked two questions about basic vehicle maintenance. This section of the test is commonly known as "Show Me / Tell Me".
Many people find the practical driving test quite daunting and can suffer from test nerves. Learning how to overcome these nerves can make the difference between passing or failing.
Once you pass your test, you will be subject to the New Drivers Act for two years. During that time, picking up 6 or more penalty points will mean your licence is revoked.
