Last minute driving tests

Driving instructors are asked to provide cover for last minute driving tests for three main reasons :-

1) The pupil has genuinely been let down by their current instructor - possibly as a result of illness or mechanical breakdown of the car.

2) The pupil does have a current driving instructor who says that they are not ready for a driving test - and the pupil does not agree with that view.

3) The pupil has not been receiving formal driving lessons and putting it bluntly - just wants to use the car on the day of the driving test.

Now let's look at the options . . .

1) If you genuinely have been let down I will do my best to help though obviously the more notice you can give me the better - you will need time to get used to my car - even if you have been learning in something similar. If I am able to help I will :- Insist on a minimum of 6 hours of my time at 25 per hour (to reflect the need to re-arrange my diary and existing pupils to accommodate the test). This payment is due on or before the first lesson. The decision as to whether you do use my car for the test is mine, and mine alone based on my assessment of your driving ability. If you are clearly not ready for a driving test you will not be taking the test in my car and I will refund any unused training fees.

2) Rather than take a gamble on failing your test why not book a mock driving test ? For 46 I will simulate to the best of my ability a real driving test, using a simulated test route and exercise, marked on a driving test report form. I will take the time to explain in  detail what errors you may have made, why they are regarded as faults and how to rectify them. As I have no vested interest in you 'passing' or 'failing' you can be sure that you are receiving an unbiased opinion.

3) There is no legal obligation for you to use a registered driving instructor. The DSA make it very clear that there is  no need for you to take an instructor's car for the test. So why not take the car you have been learning in ? As long as it is taxed, insured, displaying L plates and has an extra mirror for use by the examiner (available for a few at many car spares shops) it is fine to use it.

Please note

If you are simply wanting to 'give it a go and see what happens' please don't call me.
