PRETEST BOOKING

Welcome to the first step to passing your test there are four parts to the irish driving test

DO YOU KNOW THEM?

Theoretical questions on your knowledge of the rules of the road and road signs .Show & tell. Under the bonnet checks , Secondary controls & internal checks and The drive itself.

1. THEORY QUESTIONS ON YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE RULES OF THE ROAD AND ROAD SIGNS

Be sure to arrive at the driving test centre 15 minutes before the test itself.You will wait in the waiting room until your name is called. When your name is called by the tester you will sit across from the tester at his/her desk. After some formalities and having had your learner permit checked and verified the tester will advise that they are going to ask you some questions on road signs and on the rules of the road. The tester will ask about 8-12 questions on the rules of the road and about the same amount of road signs. An in depth knowledge of the rules of the road is needed for this part of the test. After the questions the tester will suggest you make your way to the car and you move on to stage 2 of the test.

2. UNDER THE BONNET CHECKS

On approaching the car the tester will inspect the windscreen and make sure the car has a valid insurance, tax and NCT certificates. They will also check the tyres have the correct thread depth. Do you know what the minimum tread depth on a tyre is?…1.6MM.With the bonnet raised the tester may ask you to show:

How you would test the levels of oil in the engine?Where  the coolant reservoir is located?How would you know what the levels are?Where is the bottle washer for the wipers located?Where would you find the brake fluid?

After the show me tell me the tester will ask you to close the bonnet and ask you to turn on the ignition and to demonstrate the indicators and brake lights are working properly at the front and rear. The tester will check the front and rear and make sure all bulbs are working correctly. The tester will then sit into the car and the test moves on to stage 3.

3. SECONDARY CONTROLS

At this stage of the test the tester wants to see that you can handle all secondary controls including:Where the hazard warning lights are located.Where the rear windscreen demister is,How to turn on the dipped lights and full lights,How to use the windscreen wipers,How to put water on the windscreen,How would you clear the windscreen in the event that it was fogged up or there was condensation on it,Where are the fog lights located.The tester will then give you an idea on how to proceed and that they will tell you in time to turn left or right…and so the test moves on to stage 4.

4. THE DRIVE ITSELF  (WHY OUR PASS RATE IS SO HIGH)

This is the part where the tester wants to see that you can drive unaccompanied over a variety of different road situations and conditions. You need to show that the theory knowledge you have gained can be applied confidently and responsibly in real life driving situations with an ability to respond to road markings and to obey the rules of the road. Throughout the entire test you must be able to plan and deal with any hazardous situation as it arises whilst showing a level of courtesy and consideration to other road users

You have to MAKE THE TESTER FEEL YOU DESERVE the licence by what you show him. The driving test will be carried out over a number of pre-selected routes all of equal difficulty.

REMEMBER: This is your time. You have asked the tester to be present so that you can demonstrate and convince them that you are fit to drive unaccompanied on our Irish roads.

You achieve this by demonstrating the correct procedures and roadcraft which we template out for you during your driving test preparation. FAULT MARKINGS Driving perfectly is not what the tester wants to see because it does not exist. You must ‘overall’ have driven well enough for the tester to feel comfortable to give you the independence to have the full licence based on your performance. If you make a mistake the tester will identify it as a fault. They will then assess the error, rate its importance and if need be note it on the marking tablet as either a Grade 1, Grade 2 or Grade 3, with Grade 3 being the worst kind.

Grade 1 is a minor fault, Grade 2 is a more serious fault and a Grade 3 is a dangerous or potentially dangerous fault.The magic of what I do  is in showing you how to get as few marks on your sheet as possible. Sounds simple but this comes from a direct understanding as to what the tester wants you to do and how they want you to do it.

SIMPLE AS THAT…NO MARKS MEANS PASSING THE DRIVING TEST

If you know what is coming up in any exam you can prepare well in advance. We give you the tips and tricks, the facts and the knowledge to beat the system to prove you deserve to hold a full licence. Of course like any good recipe there is a little secret sauce which you will get to see and taste when you sign up for lessons with us.

ONE MORE THING BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR CHOICE…

JUST WHAT DOES THE TESTER WANT TO SEE AND WHY?

The Tester has a busy daily schedule. Every test starts with a blank sheet and for the duration of your driving test they can only mark what they see. For the duration you are on the road the tester must see your:reverse around the corner,the turnabout,the hill start,left turns right turns and roundaboutsIf you already know:how the tester will speak to you how the tester sees things from his point of view how the tester will want you to do the maneuvers the junction organisation the tester wants to see, M.S.P.O and how to implement it where the tester will bring you on the route why the tester marks the sheet

IF YOU KNOW ALL THIS THEN YOU CAN BEAT THE MARKING SYSTEM AND PASS THE TEST.
