Observations on the driving test

It has now been a year since the DSA introduced the a campaign to take an observer on test.  Although it had always been encouraged, the DSA took the iniative to promote more proactively. 

The number of candidates who actually take someone with them on test has gradually increased, from just 4% at the time to just over 20% today. 

The examiners ask candidates at the start of the test if they want their driving instructor or another observer (who could be a parent, guardian or friend who has accompanied them to the test centre and is preferably the person who taught them to drive to sit in.  Examiners then ask candidates if they want their instructor present for the test result and debrief.
