Everything you need to know about the new driving test

Some young drivers more likely to'race sat-nav

Here are the four main changes being introduced to the driving test

More than 90% of driving tests went ahead on both strike days - with three-quarters of driving examiners coming into work.

Changes to the driving test came into effect today across England, Scotland and Wales. If you are asked to follow a sat nav the examiner will set it up for you. During your independent drive you will be asked to follow traffic signs or directions from a sat nav.

With the advance of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles, the DVSA will also consider how candidates will need to demonstrate they can use new technology safely.

Gone is "reverse-around-a-corner" and "turn-in-the-road", replaced with an action requiring an examinee to pull-up on the right-hand side of the road, reverse two-car lengths and then re-join the road.

Another new addition to the test is the addition of extra "show me" and "tell me" questions.

The "tell me" question will be asked before the driving starts, and will require the student to explain to the examiner how they would carry out a specific safety task. The strike action across the DVSA which begins on the 4th December will see up to 14,000 driving tests cancelled on the day the new driving test is launched. Costs will stay the same, with a regular driving test costing £62 on a weekday and £75 in the evenings, at weekends on and bank holidays.

"Our roads are among the safest in the world".

Department for Transport figures show that younger drivers are up to seven times more likely to be killed or seriously injured on Britain's roads compared with those over 25.

Ms Young said: "We'll continue to explore opportunities to further develop driver training and testing to make sure the driving test reflects real life driving". No one takes strike action lightly and we acknowledge the disruption to the driving tests for learner drivers keen to pass their test but the Government could avoid this strike even now at the 11th hour by agreeing to serious talks and withdrawing their most damaging proposals.

Protesters say the new reversing manoeuvre that requires candidates to pull up on the right-hand-side of the road and reverse two vehicle lengths contravenes the Highway Code, putting safety at risk.
