Preparing for Practical Test.

It is important that you be guided by your instructor to know when to put in for your Practical test. You must have completed the syllabus and have reached a sufficient level of competence to deal with whatever situation may arise on the road during your test. If you are not quiet sure of this we advise that you delay your test by a week or two  in order to gain more skill and confidence as you alone will be responsible for the safety of the car and other road users while on test.
