The DSA Driving Test

Driving Standards Agency Logo DSA The DSA driving test has been designed to check if if you can drive safely and know The Highway Code well enough to demonstrate this through your driving. The practical test which lasts around 40 minutes also includes:

An eyesight test: This is done by reading a number plate on a parked vehicle from 20 meters or 20.5 meters, depending on whether the number plate is the old or new style. (If you do not pass this part of the test you will not be able to continue).

Show Me, Tell Me. You will also be asked a combination of two vehicle safety checks, otherwise known as show me, tell me. Our driving instructors will run through each part of the show me, tell me test with you as part of your standard lessons.

A reversing exercise. The reversing exercise will be chosen from: A:Reverse around a corner. B:Turn in the road or C:Reverse parking. You may also be asked to carry out an emergency stop exercise.
