Once you have passed your Multiple Choice, Hazard Perception and Case Studies theory tests your D practical course can be arranged and the practical tests can be booked – the driving test lasts approximately 0.5 hours and 1 hour with the CPC test lasting approximately 0.5 hours.

The Category D practical test consists of several parts:

  • Show Me Tell Me D‘ – You will be asked 5 questions from the list
  • Reverse Manoeuvre Test 3a – Off Road (See Below)
  • General Road Driving Test 3b – On Road
  • Independent Drive – On Road included in 3b
When attending training and test you MUST have BOTH parts of your licence and theory & case study certificates.

This is the reverse exercise that will be part of your test, demonstrated here by our Category C vehicle. Sorry about the windy day!

Upon passing your Category D practical test, your examiner will send your licence to the DVLA for updating to the full entitlement.
