Independent Driving Section Example

Independent Driving Section Example

After asking the candidate to pull over, the Examiner will introduce the Independent Driving Section

They will show a simple map - see sample below

They will then say something like:

"The arrow on the map represents our current position, when you're ready, I'd like you to move off then at the end of the road turn left, take the first road on the right and at the roundabout, turn right taking the first exit."

The examiner will always ask if you understand the directions - so if you aren't sure about something, ask them to explain it again.
