The practical test is in two parts – 3a Off Road. (this needs to be passed before being able to go onto part 3b) And 3b on road

What is involved?

Training depends on pervious experience and is normally 2- 3 or 4 days. Due to the 3a and 3b element needing to be passed separately training may be split over a number of days.

The 3b test you will need to be able to reverse like an ‘S’ shape into a restricted area (marked out with cones) If you take this test with a trailer you will also need to uncouple and re couple.

Its a fine line between a pass and a fail, so plenty of practice is the key. Its recommended that a full day is devoted to the trailer element (b+e)

The On Road exam will be 1 hour and the examiner will be looking at the following >>

  • Move away and stop safely 
  • Use of mirrors and all round effective observations 
  • Move away at an angle up and down hill
  • Good forward planning
  • Good awareness and anticipation of all road users including pedestrians etc.
  • Use of indicators
  • Make good progress with appropriate speed
  • Use all the controls correctly
  • 10 minutes of independent driving

Pupil’s Reviews

Recommended Intensive Driving School, Manchester

After three previous unsuccessful attempts with a well-known driving school I had almost given up on driving, however, after a four day intensive course with Rob, after two years without any other professional instruction, I passed at the first time of trying.  Rob was incredibly patient with myself who was incredibly anxious and I imagine was not the easiest person to teach!  I passed today with only two minor faults and am absolutely over the moon! The entire booking process was smooth and easy and the car was impeccable, as was Rob’s professionalism.  Many thanks to all involved, from the lady who took my booking to Rob and Paul themselves.

Having previously had some lessons with another driving school, I couldn’t believe the difference that was made in my driving with Rob from NWCC. Rob’s patience, knowledge, coaching skills, and friendly approach helped me considerably. I passed my driving test this morning with 1 minor. Thanks again Rob for all your support
