Learners worried by independent driving
55% of learner drivers are worried that they will fail the new practical driving test as a result of the new independent driving section, according to a new survey.
The test now includes an independent driving section during which candidates are required to drive for 10 minutes without step-by-step instruction from their examiner.
The survey, by Focus Multimedia, also revealed that 50% of candidates have already been taught by their instructor about independent driving.
In response, Focus Multimedia has published a PC DVD-ROM revision aid, Driving Test Success All Tests 2011 Edition, which contains a mock driving test video covering independent driving.
