Be prepared for your driving test

Taking a mock driving test is a great way to see where you’re at in your own driving skills. Its also a  good way to let you know what will happen on the day of your driving test.

Our mock driving tests take around 40 minutes and include everything that you would cover during a normal driving test.

Taking a mock driving test is a great way to see where you’re at in your own driving skills. It's also a good way to let you know what will happen on the day of your driving test.

  • Checking your driving licence
  • An eyesight check
  • Reversing the car
  • General driving ability
  • Independent driving / sat nav
  • Show me / tell me vehicle safety questions
  • Emergency stop*

*The emergency stop may not be included in your actual driving test – it's used in 1 in 3 tests


Benefits of taking a mock driving test

Settle your nerves

One of the biggest reasons that many pupils fail their driving test is due to test day nerves. By taking a mock driving test with someone other than your instructor this can help keep those nerves under control as you will know what to expect on test day with a complete stranger watching you drive.

Practice Test Format

Our mock driving test will be as close as possible to to your actual test day experience from start to finish so you won’t get any unexpected surprises

Mock Results

At the end of your mock driving test, you and your instructor will be told of any faults that you incurred and also the good points of your driving strengths. This allows you to work on any area(s) that need to be addressed before your actual test date.


How you'll learn from your mock test

Marking sheet

Just like your real test, your mock test with West End Driving will include a mock marking sheet, breaking your feedback up into manageable chunks to identify your strengths and developments. The marking sheet is split into assessment criteria under 15 different headings.

Although eco-safe driving is assessed during the driving test, it does not affect the overall result. We use this to give you feedback at the end of the test.

  • Eyesight test
  • Manoeuvres
  • Show me/tell me
  • Emergency stop
  • Control
  • Move off
  • Use of mirrors
  • Signals
  • Junctions
  • Judgement
  • Positioning
  • Progress
  • Response to signs/signals
  • Examiner took action (ETA)
  • Eco (fuel-efficient driving)

Feedback at the end of your test

When giving feedback at the end of the test, we’ll even stay in the character of “examiner” to make the experience as realistic as possible to your test day.  This also means you can expect what level of feedback to receive after you test.  We’ll offer you a brief explanation of the faults that we have recorded on the marking sheet. Explain all serious and dangerous faults, and a selection of repeated driving faults.

You will “pass” the mock driving test if you make:

  • no more than 15 driving faults (sometimes called ‘minors’)
  • no serious or dangerous faults (sometimes called ‘majors’)

When your mock test is finished, we can stop roleplaying as the examiner and:

  • give more feedback about their driving during the mock test
  • ask questions about any faults
  • answer any questions they have about the test and how they drove
  • use the results of the mock test to plan their future lessons
