The Road Drive
The drive on the road will last for about 60 minutes and the overall test takes about 90 minutes.
Vehicle safety questions for lorries and buses
These are basic safety checks that a driver should carry out to ensure the vehicle is safe for use. Although some checks may involve the candidate in opening the bonnet to identify where fluid levels would be checked, candidates will not be asked to touch a hot engine or physically check fluid levels.
As vehicle technology advances, more and more vehicles are being equipped with electronic diagnostic systems, which inform the driver of the state of the engine fluid levels and tyre pressures. It will be acceptable for a candidate to refer to the vehicle information system (if fitted) when answering questions on fluid levels or tyre pressures.
Drivers seeking vocational licence entitlement should be experienced and technically expert, the assessment criteria reflects this.
What vehicle do I use
Generally you will use our vehicle for the training and the test, but if required you can use your own vehicle providing it meets the minimum test vehicle standards.
