The test is based on the LGV test and requires a good standard of driving and reversing to pass.
At the beginning of your test you will be asked to read a number plate from 20.5 meters away
You will be asked 5 Show Me Tell Me questions – we will go through each of these with you and provide a copy of all the questions.
The examiner will ask you to reverse the vehicle and trailer in a “S” shaped course finishing within a marked bay.
You will be asked to perform an unhitch and re-hitch of the trailer and carry out some basic safety checks.
The driving element of the test lasts for about 50 minutes to 1 hour and will take you on a variety of different roads. You can make no more than 15 driver faults and no serious or dangerous faults which would result in a fail.
For 10 minutes of the test you will be asked to drive independently either by following road signs or a simple diagram.
At the end of your test your Examiner will give you your result and a debrief to explain any faults recorded. Your instructor will be present at the debrief.
