Driving Test Tips Videos


Here are several videos that contain tips to help you pass the Practical Driving Test.


If you are about to take your practical driving test you may have heard other people talking - saying it wasn't their fault they failed because of some other reason. However, don't let yourself get worked up, as many of the things you hear could be a myth and are not actually true. In this video we will show you the Top 10 driving test myths, so you know that as long as you drive safely you will pass!


If you are finding it hard to deal with pre-driving test nerves and anxiety, then this video has a few ideas to help you.

We discuss what nerves are and describe the common symptoms, and then describe several ways you can learn to take control of your nerves.

We often get asked how the driving test works, so in this video I drive one of the full test routes from the Bury St Edmunds driving test centre. I include a manoeuvre, independent driving with the official sat-nav and the 'show me, tell me' questions  just like a real test.


This video covers all 19 'Show Me, Tell Me' questions used during the Practical Driving Test.

Test Tips



The new UK Practical Driving Test includes 20 minutes of independent driving, and 4 out of 5 tests will use a sat-nav for this part of the test. The remaining 1 in 5 will follow road signs for the independent drive section - so that's what this video will show. We will be using an automatic car, and the test route will include a manoeuvre and everything a real examiner would say.
