The extended practical driving test
There are many driving instructors that can assist you in training to take and pass your extended driving test, but there are also many that can’t, but think they can.
The extended test is longer than the normal test (hence the name) but the standard of driving is the same at for a learner driver, you still get the same amount of driving faults but they are spread over a longer period. The test will include fast roads, dual carriageways if possible.
You need to select a driving instructor that will suit your needs; you should not be treated like a young inexperienced driver, but as someone that needs to be taught how to pass the DSA test.
Retesting for disqualified drivers and riders was introduced on 6 January 1992. The purpose of retesting disqualified drivers is not meant as punishment, but is a road safety measure aimed at checking the driver's competence.
Courts can impose an extended driving test on anyone who is:
· convicted of dangerous driving offences
· convicted of other offences involving obligatory disqualification
Loss of your driving licence for dangerous driving or related offences involving obligatory disqualification means that you return to 'learner' status - normal rules for provisional licence holders will then apply.
You must therefore take and pass a theory test for the category of vehicle you intend to take an extended practical driving test in.
The extended driving test is longer and therefore more demanding. It lasts for about 70 minutes and covers a wide variety of roads, usually including dual carriageways. You are advised to prepare by taking suitable instruction from an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI).
Following disqualification from riding under the Road Traffic Act, all riders are required to complete compulsory basic training (CBT) to validate their new provisional driving licence when it is issued.
This applies in all cases, including those where the person previously held full motorcycle entitlement. A DL196 issued prior to the disqualification period is invalidated by the disqualification.
Applying for a retest
If you have to take a category B retest you can apply for a provisional licence at the end of the period of disqualification.
The normal rules for provisional licence holders apply:
· you must be supervised by a person who is at least 21 years old and has held (and still holds) a full licence for at least three years for the vehicle being driven
· L plates, or D plates in Wales, must be displayed to the front and rear of the vehicle
· driving on motorways is not allowed
· buses and lorries cannot be driven if you have only got a provisional car licence (category B)
There are higher fees for extended tests, so you must make it clear when you apply for a test which type of test you want.
