VICROADS DRIVING TEST – THE PRACTICAL DRIVING TEST
The most important part of the VicRoads driving test is the practical driving test. The total duration of this test is 30 minutes.Below we outline the different components of this test.
Before the drive
The learner driver will be asked by the testing officer to sit in the driver’s seat. The learner driver will then be asked to switch on the car ignition to accessory mode. Then the driver will be asked to identify and operate the following controls: break lights, right and left indicators, hazard lights, windscreen wipers and washers, rear and front demisters, and high and low beams. You will then have to adjust your mirrors and put on your seatbelt.
During the drive
Following this, the test will continue with practical driving on the streets. The testing officer will give short instructions, such as to turn right or left, or drive straight. The driver has to perform these tasks while adhering to all road rules and signs.Some tricky things to look out for are:
- turning into traffic; and
- changing lanes.
- Giving way
As part of the VicRoads driving test, the learner driver will be asked to perform either a:
- reverse parallel park, or a
- three-point turn.
Serious errors during the test
The practical driving test is designed to assess your ability to drive safely. It’s possible to fail the VicRoads driving test if you make a serious error that does or could create an unsafe situation, i.e. a dangerous situation. There are two possible penalties for serious errors: immediate termination and critical error .The driving test will be terminated immediately if the learner driver does something against road regulations.
PASS YOUR VICROADS DRIVING TEST WITH CONFIDENCE
To maximise your chances of passing your Vic Roads driving test, we take you along the fixed testing route around the Vic Roads office of your choice.In our practice driving test lesson, our instructors act as the testing officer so you can anticipate anything that may happen on the day of your test. We also strongly advise you take a few driving lessons to properly understand the test criteria in the week prior to your test.
Most learner drivers sitting their Vic Roads driving test know how to drive but not all pass the test straight away. The main reason for this is high levels of stress that result in wrong decisions and judgements to be made. Our driving school will not only ensure you are familiarised with the test criteria, but will also teach you techniques to control your stress. This will ensure you stay cool, calm and confident, and successfully pass your Vic Roads driving test.
