Since the 4th October 2010 there have been some changes to driving tests.

Learner drivers are now required to drive uninstructed for ten minutes, either following some pre-given instructions or else asked to follow signs to a specific destination. People will not fail if they make a mistake in navigating to the correct location, however will be expected to react calmly & drive appropriately should they make an incorrect turn. The aim is to make the test more realistic.

Additionally, driving test routes have changed & the new routes are no longer published on-line for drivers to access.
