The new practical test started on the 27th of April 2009. The first part (Module 1) will be carried out at your nearest off-road test centre. This may be the town where you've been learning but, if your town doesn't have a test centre (and many don't) then you may have to travel with your instructor to another town. The second part (Module 2) will be carried out on the roads probably in and around the town where the test centre is based.
At the test centre you will carry out slow and high (but not on mopeds) speed exersises which are now considered to be too dangerous to carry out on public roads.
Those candidates who have demonstrated riding skills of a dangerously incompetent level during Module 1 will not be permitted to take Module 2.
Those candidates who have passed Module 1 will receive a Test Pass Certificate which they must bring with them when they take Module 2.
Module 1 will take, on average, 22 minutes.
Module 2 of the test will be about 35-40 minutes in length and will consist of the eyesight test, road safety questions and at least 30 minutes of road riding. consisting of a road ride covering a variety of road and traffic conditions and will also include normal stops, hill and angle starts.
