But, as you are an experienced driver, you will be tested to a higher standard and to ensure you have a greater understanding and knowledge, need to cover a lot more subjects.

Part 2 - Test of Driving Ability

 
The Test of Driving Ability is very similar to the learner driver test.

However, as an experienced driver, you will be expected to have and display a greater understanding and knowledge and be able to drive to higher standard.

Part 3 - Test of Instructional Ability

You will be expected to demonstrate that you can teach a learner driver and be able fix any faults in their driving.

Process

 
You will sit the tests in order (i.e. you cannot sit Part 2 until you have passed Part 1).
 
Once you have passed Part 1, you have 2 years in which to pass Parts 2 & 3.
 
If your 2 years run out, you will need to start again from the beginning and pass Part 1.
