Changes to the driving test in October

Changes to the driving test are being made in October of this year to include 'independent driving', which is going to test a candidate's competency in following a series of instructions whilst still maintaining safe driving. The candidate may be shown a map, given a series of directions or asked to follow road signs to a particular destination. In my opinion this is a really good idea as often a pupil has always been told where to drive to until they pass their test. It's a whole new skill being able to plan your own route whilst maintaining your MSM routines.

The hazard perception test

One of the most common questions I'm asked regarding the hazard perception part of the theory test is 'how many times should I be clicking?' or 'do I click when I first see the hazard or when the hazard develops?'. It is true that it's possible to click too early. Just as it is possible to click too many times in which case you will be penalized and given 0 points for that clip.
