Arrival and Parking At the Drive test Centre 

As you arrive at the Drive Test Centre, you’ll typically find designated parking spots labelled with numbers. Your first task is to smoothly manoeuvre your car into one of these numbered spots. It’s always better to park reverse into the spot so that it’s easy for you to come out of the spot as your test starts.

License and Vehicle Inspection 

With a friendly smile, the examiner greets you and begins the inspection process. First up, they’ll ask to see your driver’s license. But the inspection doesn’t end there. The examiner’s keen eye now turns to your trusty steed – your vehicle. They meticulously check that everything is in proper working order, conducting a thorough examination that includes: 

1. Signal Lights Check: With a series of flicks and switches, the examiner ensures that your signal lights are functioning as they should. Left turn signal – check. Right turn signal – check. Each click and flash is a testament to your vehicle’s readiness for the road. 

2. Brake Lights Check: Next, the examiner verifies that your brake lights illuminate promptly and brightly when you apply the brakes. A quick tap of the pedal, and the reassuring glow of the brake lights confirms that all is well in the rear of your vehicle. 

3. Horn Inspection: With a firm press of the horn, you demonstrate that your vehicle’s horn is in proper working order. 

Take Note that if your vehicle fails any of the above inspection your test will be terminated, and you must book a new road test and must pay the booking fee to the ministry again when booking.
