Detail

Your practical driving test will include around 10 minutes of independent driving. You’ll have to drive independently by either following:

  • traffic signs
  • a series of directions
  • a combination of both

To help you understand where you’re going when following verbal directions, the examiner can show you a diagram. This is an example of the type of diagram they will use.
