What is the emergency driving test like?

The driving test will be marked in the same way as before.There are some changes due to covid 19, for example you will have to wear a face mask (unless you have a good reason not too which you must state at time of booking). You cannot arrive more than 5 minutes early. Your instructor is not allowed to accompany you whilst on the test. Your driving examiner will direct you back to the driving test centre if the mistake you made means you’ve failed. The test will end early.
