Theory training
Anyone wishing to take a practical driving test must first take and pass a theory test.

The theory test consists of 50 questions (to be answered in 57 mins) of which 43 must be answered correctly to pass. This is then followed by the Hazard perception test.

During your driver training with dl-driving, Mock Test Papers can be supplied for home study (free of charge) to be marked and discussed on your next lesson as well as free online theory training.

For more information about the test or to book a test go to: www.gov.uk

Hazard perception training
In addition to the 50 theory questions, candidates must also pass the Hazard Perception test. This takes place straight after the theory test and consists of 14 video clips, each about 1 minute long. In the clips there are 15 hazards (1 clip will have two hazards). Each hazard is worth a maximum of 5 points. The candidate must spot the hazard at the earliest opportunity to gain the highest mark and must get a minimum of 44 out of a possible 75 points to pass. Candidates must pass both parts of the test in the same sitting. Hazard Perception training discs are available for loan during training.

  • develop their existing skills.
  • acquire the new skills and knowledge that make up positive driving.
  • further develop anticipation skills, plan for and deal with hazards safely.
  • understand how to reduce their risk of having a crash.
  • maintain a courteous and considerate attitude to other road users.

DL driving conduct the course over 3x1hr lessons and 1x3hr lesson a total of 6 hours in-car training. There is no test at the end but occasionally more lessons may be necessary (at extra cost) to reach the required standard.

Taxi driver training

Taxi
Since 1999 it has been a requirement in Eastbourne, that before you can be issued with a Hackney Carriage or Private Hire Driver's Licence you must first pass a DVSA Driving Test.

To apply for a Taxi licence visit: www.eastbourne.gov.uk/business/licence

The test consists of the following:

The eyesight test:

At the start of your practical test you will be asked to read in good daylight (with the aid of glasses or contact lenses if worn) a registration mark fixed to a motor vehicle with letters and figures 79.4 millimetres high at a distance of 20.5 metres (20 metres for a new style number plate). If you fail the eyesight test, you will be unable to take the driving part but will still be able to continue with the wheelchair section.

The practical test:

The practical test will last for about 35 to 40 minutes, depending on traffic. The taxi assessment test is reflective of modern driving practices, the standard is set at a level suitable for the full driving licence holder, which is therefore higher than the learner driver test. During the test you should drive in a natural way, and should not adjust your driving to what you may feel the examiner would expect to see. The examiner will give you clear instructions which you should follow throughout the test. To pass you are permitted to accumulate up to 9 driving faults, 10 or more would be a fail. It is important that you read the Highway Code and be familiar with your vehicle.
