ALTERNATIVES - The Extended Practice Test

Back to Square OneHere's an interesting item from the United Kingdom: Drivers may be ordered by the courts to retake their driving theory test and take an extended practical driving test to return to full licence status. This is may be part of the penalty for a dangerous driving conviction or conviction for any offence that carries a mandatory driving prohibition.

The practical driving test is longer and more demanding than the normal learner driving test. The test lasts for about 70 minutes and covers a wide variety of roads, including freeways where possible. The web site that explains how the system works opines that "Many candidates have found it beneficial to take some driving instruction in advance of the test."
