    The test will start with an eyesight check. Your Driving Examiner will ask you to read the number plate on a stationary vehicle. The distance requirement for the eyesight test using old style number plates is 20.5 metres or 20 metres if the new-style number plate is used. (If you can't speak English or have difficulty reading, you may copy down what you see)

    You then have to answer TWO of the Show Me/Tell Me Questions. The Questions and Answers are available here. Make the effort, It is your first chance to make a good impression. CB's Top Tip: Make sure you know how to open the bonnet!!!

    What about my Insurance? Am I covered?

    Insurance for a test is a little different to that required to learn or practice. Make sure you have called your Insurance company to check that you are Insured for the test. On the day of the test you are essentially driving unaccompanied. The examiner is an observer and is not there to react for you except at the last minute to prevent incident. Driving School cars will generally be covered as standard. But if you plan to take it in your own car it may be worth requesting written confirmation from your Insurance company to prevent being turned away at the test centre. (Additional: Ensure your car is clean, road legal, and not on the list of cars unsuitable for the test check both here AND here)

    CB's Driving School are able to offer you a deal through Collingwood Insurance. They offer 7, 28 or 82 day policies, and through CB's you can get up to £30 off these already low prices! The benefit of Insuring in this way is that once you pass you are not already committed to an Insurance Company and can find the best deal for you as a FULL licence holder after your test!
