This is Watford Test Centre, typical of
many test centres situated throughout the country, where the pupil will meet the driving
examiner for the first and hopefully the only time.
The examiner will walk out
from behind the blue door and call the name of the candidate, ask the candidate
to sign the test form to authenticate being insured to drive the car (all
driving school cars should be insured to cover any driver), and then ask to see
the necessary documents, which are driving licence, theory pass certificate,
and, if appropriate, some form of identification.
The candidate will then be
asked to lead the way to the car, pausing on the way for the statutory eyesight
test (read a number plate from 20 metres, or 67 feet).
The test itself will take about 40 minutes, starting and ending
in the test centre car park, which is just a short walk from the waiting
At the end of the test, the candidate will be told the result,
and, pass or fail, will receive a de-briefing from the examiner.
