We turn those uncomfortable feelings into a relaxed and positive thinking attitude, with the student then being able to comprehend how to deal with any road situation presented toward them. This detailed and structured approach will turn any nervous driver into a capable, safe and responsible driver that anyone can be proud to share the road with.

Theory Tests around Hampshire

You can book your theory test from the date your Provisional Driving Licence becomes active.

There are some fantastic options out there for learner drivers to study the theory test including apps, DVD’s, and books, but if you’re still struggling then one of our knowledgeable driving instructors can help you with any aspect you may be struggling with.

Practical Driving Tests around South Hampshire

The Practical Driving Test is the final step to gaining your Full UK Driving Licence. This cannot be taken until you have passed your Theory Test. With a variety of Test Centres around the County including Winchester, Basingstoke, Newbury and two in Southampton, the difference of potential traffic encounters and road layouts will alter drastically. However, you will be tested in the same format and asked to perform the same tasks no matter where you are.

The Practical Driving Test can last around 40 minutes taking in various road and traffic conditions. At the start of the test you will have a quick eyesight check, followed by a vehicle safety question, one of the `Show Me, Tell Me` questions. You will be asked to follow instructions from a driving examiner around areas that you will recognize from one of our instructors. During the test you will be asked to carry out one reversing manoeuvre and possibly an emergency controlled stop. There will also be a 20 minute independent drive where you could be following directions from a Sat-Nav, or following road signs. You will also be asked another `Show Me, Tell Me` question whilst on route of the test. Everything in your test will be things that you will learn from our experienced driving instructors. You will not go into this test blind but in fact go with confidence, knowledge, and the right driving attitude of defensive driving with safety and consideration toward others.

Supreme School of Motoring have a unique mock test setup that better prepares you for the trial ahead. You will have the advantage of knowing what it’s like to have a different person in the car with you, as some learner drivers can become quite comfortable with their instructor and anxiety can climb with a new person sat beside them.
