The Driving Pre-Test Assessment

The pre-test assessment gives you the opportunity to ‘try out’ the driving test, but with your driving instructor as the assessor.

By ‘practicing’ the test in this way, you will become more familiar with the routine involved, and gain in confidence.

During a pre-test, CSM will also point out any mistakes you are making as you make them. The most common mistakes are lack of observation, coasting, position on road and roundabout. CSM will help you to correct these mistakes using new techniques so you can get the maximum benefit from the session. We will also practice your manoeuvres such as reversing around a corner etc, which pupils find the most difficult.

The pre-test assessment takes place on the test route itself and on the surrounding area.

Some pupils find it helpful to take a last pre-test the hour before their actual driving test time, in order to get ‘in the zone’!
