Added: A number of interesting changes have been introduced.

  • 20 minutes of independent drive (currently 10)
  • SAT-NAV directions will be used during the independent driving
  •  Vehicle safety questions (Show me Tell Me) also be done on the move - With the potential of becoming a fail!
  • Pulling forwards into a parking bay and reversing out
  • Pulling up on the right-hand side of the road, reversing back and then pulling away

What is changing?

Nothing - At least not at Better Driver Training. We teach all of our pupils to a standard where we feel confident they will be able to handle everything the road has to throw at them - this is above that of any driving test. Therefore any of the test changes are already covered on our lessons. We will however be ensuring that all our customers understand the DVSA test standards and how to meet, and beat, them.

Relax, stay confident, and keep aiming to be a better driver! Leave the rest up to us!
