Lancaster Driving Lessons also supports the rapidly increasing use of black boxes in cars for insurance purposes - you will be paying premiums for how you drive not for how others of a similar age, location, etc drive. With some simple steps we can help you reduce your premiums by reducing the chances of having an accident.


Theory Test

The theory test is split into two sections. The multiple choice questions and the hazard perception test. The question section covers things like the highway code, documents and insurance, what to do in an accident as well as other areas. The questions you will get asked are no longer published - there is no official question bank available since the start of 2012. The pass mark needed is 43 out of 50. The second part of the theory test is the hazard perception test. You will be shown video clips of road scenarios and asked to spot developing hazards. The earlier you spot them the more points you will get. There is 14 clips and 15 hazards, awarding up to 5 points each. The pass mark is 44 out of 75. You need to pass both tests at the same time to get your test certificate - this is valid for 2 years.

Practical Test

The driving test consists of several elements. You will be first tested on your eyesight. You need to be able to read a number plate from 20.5meters(maximum) - if you can not then your test is finished without driving. You will also get asked 2 questions about vehicle safety. During the drive you will be asked to do one of four manoeuvres (turn in the road, parallel park, reverse park and reverse round the corner).  You also have a 1 in 3 chance of being asked to do a controlled stop. During the test you will also have to complete the independent drive. You will be asked to follow directions (such as signs) for around 10minutes of the test. To pass the test you need to make no more than 15 driving faults and you are not allowed to make any serious or dangerous faults.
