                    Independent Driving Explained

For up to 10 minutes of your test, you will have to drive independently by either:

> Following traffic signs

> Following directions

> Both the above combined. 

To help you when following verbal directions, your examiner will show you a diagram.

It will not matter if you go 'off course', as long as you do not commit a driving fault. Make your own decisions. Ask when it is and conveniant safe to do so. 

If you go 'off course', the examiner will help you get back on it. Then you  continue your independent driving. 

Your examiner will direct you in the event of poor or hidden signs. You do not have to know the area in detail. 

You can not use sat nav. Independent driving is about you making your decisions.

                          Special Needs

Special procedures are in place for those with special need. These must be declared when booking a test by phone or online. DSA examiners are carefully trained to conduct tests for people with special needs. 

During the independent driving, you may be asked which method you prefer. E.g. following signs or directions or a combination of all. 

Where a candidate speaks little English, the examiner may write place names to help you understand where he/she would like you to drive.

An interpreter is allowed to come with you. And that person can be your driving instructor.
