“Just passed my category C (class 2) training with LAD training Ltd and they were fantastic from beginning to end. I passed every test first time due to top quality training packages and instructors who were very supportive and encouraging through the entire programme. Cannot recommend them enough”.

The driving test is now split into two tests, the 3A manoeuvres test and the 3B on road driving test.

How the 3A test works

Your test will last up to 30 minutes, and includes:

  • an ‘S’ shaped reverse into a bay
  • showing the uncoupling and recoupling procedure if you’re taking a test with a trailer

During the test

You can carry on if you make a mistake during your driving test.

In England, your driving examiner will only stop your test if they think your driving is a danger to others.

Test result

If you pass the test, you’ll get a test certificate. You’ll need to take the certificate to your Driver CPC part 3b (on-road driving) test.

You need to pass the Driver CPC part 3b test within 6 months of getting your certificate. If you do not, you’ll need to pass part 3a again.

If you fail you can book another test straight away, but you must leave at least 24 hours before you take the test again.

How the 3B test works

Your test will include:

  • vehicle safety questions
  • 1 hour of practical road driving

Practical road driving

During your practical road driving, the examiner will see how you:

  • use the vehicle controls
  • move away at an angle, uphill and downhill
  • do a controlled stop
  • use the mirrors
  • give appropriate signals
  • show awareness and anticipation of other road users’ intentions
  • manage your progress and control your vehicle speed
  • deal with hazards
  • select a safe place to stop

There will also be 10 minutes of independent driving, designed to test your ability to drive safely while making independent decisions.

During the test

You can carry on if you make a mistake during your driving test.

If you’re in Scotland or Wales and you make a mistake which means you’ve failed, your driving examiner will direct you back to the driving test centre. The test will end early.

In England, your driving examiner will only stop your test if they think your driving is a danger to other road users.
