Are you taking the new driving test?

Driving tests across the UK will challenge candidates to drive independently to a pre-arranged destination from 4 October.

Examiners will still tell candidates where to go in step-by-step instructions in some parts of the practical driving test.

But in the new section - called independent driving, which is likely to add up to 10 minutes to test times - examiners will ask candidates to drive by either following a series of directions, following traffic signs, or a combination of both.
