Driving Test - Proposed Changes for 2017

Using a satnav on test, parking on the wrong side of the road, answering questions on the move and driving forwards into a bay and reversing are just 4 aspects of trials completed by the DVSA and are likely to be added to the elements of the driving test in early 2017 subject to ratification following consultation. To make room for these, likely to go from the test are the manoeuvres although they will still be taught by Driving Instructors as aspects which come in to everyday use post test. It is thought that the test will still last 40 minutes but be much more representative of real life driving.
