ADI Part 2 Driving Test – what is involved

This is a practical test of driving ability which consists of an eyesight test, safety questions and a test of driving technique.

The test will last for about one hour. You must pass all parts of the test at the same time and within 3 attempts. Sky driving school will provide you with a highly qualified tutor who will ensure that you are fully prepared for your Driving Test.

The eyesight test

You must be able to read, in good daylight and with the aid of glasses or contact lenses if worn, a motor vehicle registration mark containing letters and figures:

79 millimetres in height and 50 millimetres wide at a distance of 26.5 metres


79 millimetres in height and 57 millimetres wide at a distance of 27.5 metres

If you do not pass the eyesight test, you will not be allowed to take the driving ability element. The test will be marked as a fail and will count as one of your three attempts.

Safety questions

Your examiner will ask you to describe how to perform a check on the condition and safety of three components of the vehicle and demonstrate an actual check on the condition of a further two components.

The components will be chosen from the following list: tyres, steering, brakes, lights, reflectors, direction indicators, audible warning device and the liquids used in the braking system, steering system, engine or elsewhere in the vehicle as a coolant, lubricant, cleaner or otherwise.

Test of driving ability

The test of driving ability is an advanced driving test and a very high standard of competence is required. You must show that you have a thorough knowledge of the principles of good driving and road safety and that you can apply them. You must satisfy the examiner on all or any of the following subjects:

expert handling of the controls

use of correct road procedure

anticipation of the actions of other road users and the taking of appropriate action

sound judgement of distance, speed and timing

consideration for the convenience and safety of other road users

The routes used for the test will include roads which may carry heavy and/or fast moving traffic. They will also cover a range of road and traffic conditions, including urban and rural conditions.

What else must I be able to do in order to pass?

You must show the ability to perform any or all of the following manoeuvres including all three of the reversing exercises:

move away straight ahead or at an angle

overtake, meet or cross the path of other vehicles and take an appropriate course without undue hesitancy

turn left-hand and right-hand corners correctly without undue hesitancy

stop the vehicle in an emergency

reverse park the vehicle into the space behind a parked car, within the space of about two car lengths and close to and parallel with the kerb, taking effective all round observation,

reverse or forward park into a parking bay, with due regard for other vehicles or pedestrians, while taking effective all-round observation

Pull up on the right-hand side of the road so that you´re reasonably close to the kerb. Reverse 2 car lengths and then rejoin traffic when it´s safe.
