If you want your driving school to book a test session for you, you can log in and authorise the school to do so.
It is you who are the driver, and who are responsible for what is done during the test. The test has several parts or tasks, and you need to solve the tasks independently, both when it comes to driving and the other tasks you are given.
The manner in which you solve the tasks will be assessed as a whole, to the extent that this is possible, and the result will be determined when you have completed the test. As soon as the test is over, you will be told whether you passed or not, and you will be given a written statement explaining the decision made.
Vehicle for the practical driving test
- The lorry you use for the practical driving test must be loaded and have an actual total weight between 6000 and 7500 kg.
- The lorry must be approved as a driving test vehicle.
What the test comprises
When the test begins, you will have to carry out a pre-trip check. You must be able to use the tachograph correctly.
You will get a safety check question/task before the driving begins. You may be asked, for example, to check lights, brakes or warning lamps. In addition, you will be asked to explain what the cause or consequence might be if something is wrong.
You will be driving for approximately 45 minutes, under varying road and traffic conditions. The route you drive will have been determined in advance.
Tasks you will be given while you drive
You will be given directions in good time as to where to drive. For the most part, the driving examiner will ask you to drive towards destinations in the form of place names for which you will find direction signs along the way. You will also be asked to turn around, park and reverse.
The driving examiner’s assessment
The driving examiner will assess whether you have reached the goals to the extent that you can practise on your own from now.
- Emphasis will be placed on whether you drive comfortably and efficiently, and without causing unnecessary wear on the vehicle.
- At the same time you must be able to pay attention to the road and traffic situation around you.
- Your driving must be predictable and safe and promote efficient traffic flow.
- You must plan ahead as you drive, be considerate of the needs of others and seek efficient interaction with other road users.
