Proposed Changes to UK Driving Test

When searching for driver instructors Widnes and locate Drive 4 Life, you know that we are constantly keeping up to date with any driving test changes. At present, the Driving Standard Agency are conducting trials to ensure that the proposed changes to the learner driving test reflect real driving. The three-point turn looks set to be consigned to history in the biggest shake-up to the driving test in 20 years.

The three point turn, officially known now as ‘turn in the road’, could be scrapped altogether and replaced by parking manoeuvres. It is a considering replacing the ‘reverse around a corner’ as well as ‘turn in the road’ manoeuvres with more ‘realistic’ everyday manoeuvres, such as ‘reversing out of a parking bay’, or ‘pulling up on the left or right, reversing back a stated distance before re-joining the flow of traffic.

At Drive 4 Life we are cautious in removing basic manoeuvres like a turn  in the road which can be essential if sat-nav’s lead drivers down a dead end road. As for the other proposals we are fully supporting the Driving Standard Agency in incorporating these new initiatives.
