From 4 October 2010 your practical driving test will include a section of 'independent driving'.

During your test you'll have to drive by either following a series of directions, following traffic signs, or a combination of both, for about ten minutes.

To help you understand where you're going, the examiner may show you a diagram.

It doesn't matter if you don't remember every direction, or if you go the wrong way - that can happen to the most experienced drivers.

Independent driving is not a test of your orientation and navigation skills. Driving independently means making your own decisions - this includes deciding when it's safe and appropriate to ask for confirmation about where you're going.
