West Norfolk Driving School
Driving Lessons, Intensive Driving Courses and DSA Practical Test
The DSA Practical driving test is conducted by a Driving Standards Agency Examiner and lasts between 38 - 40 minutes.  The routes are used to include a typical range of traffic and road conditions and starts and finishes from your local Driving Test Centre, on average you drive for about 8-miles during this period.
The Examiner tests your ability to drive safely and competently and tests you on all that you have learnt during your lessons. You can fail the test if you commit a serious or dangerous fault, or if you have 15 or more driving faults.  Immediately after the test the Examiner will advise you if you have passed or failed.  If unfortunately you have failed you will be advised where you went wrong and given a printed sheet with the details. 

This sheet will be useful to show your driving instructor to assess what further training is required. You can apply for another driving test straight away providing 10 working days has elapsed between each test.

During the test you will be asked by the examiner to undertake two of the following manoeuvres and optionally the emergency stop:

  • Reverse parking behind a parked car or into a parking bay.
  • Reversing round a corner to either the left or right.
  • Turn in the road.
