PASSING A DRIVING TEST IN MEATH IS A MATTER OF FOLLOWING OUR TEMPLATED PRETEST LESSONS

 

OK....LET'S GET STARTED!

THERE ARE FOUR STAGES TO THE IRISH DRIVING TEST

  1. Theoretical questions on your knowledge of the rules of the road and road signs

  2. Show & tell. Under the bonnet checks

  3. Secondary controls & internal checks

  4. The drive itself

 

STAGE 1: THEORY QUESTIONS ON YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE RULES OF THE ROAD AND ROAD SIGNS

Ensure you arrive at the test center at least 15 minutes before the test starts. Wait in the waiting room until your name has been called by the tester. You will then be brought into a room and sat opposite the tester. The tester will begin by asking some administrative questions followed by checking and verifying your learner permit. The tester will then tell you that they will ask you a series of questions on the rules of the road and road signs. The tester will ask 8-12 questions on the rules of the road and again for road signs. It is vital that you have studied both these topics. When you complete answering the questions the tester will suggest to make your way to the car to begin stage 2 of the test.

STAGE 2: UNDER THE BONNET CHECKS

When you reach the car the tester will inspect the windscreen, tire thread depth and check for valid insurance, NCT and tax.

 

You will then be asked to pop the bonnet. With the bonnet raised and secured the tester may ask you the following questions:

 

  • How would you test the levels of oil in the engine?

  • Where is the coolant reservoir located

  • How would you know what the levels are?

  • Where is the bottle washer for the wipers located?

  • where would you find the brake fluid?

 

After you answer this series of questions the tester will tell you to close the bonnet and turn on the ignition of the car. You will then proceed to turn on lights and indicators as requested by the tester. The tester is checking that all bulbs are working properly. After this the tester will sit in the car. You will now begin stage 3.

STAGE 3: SECONDARY CONTROLS

The tester will now ask you to demonstrate the following procedures within in the car:

 

  • Where are the hazard warning lights located?

  • Where is the rear windscreen demister?

  • How do you turn on dipped lights and full lights?

  • How do you use the windscreen wipers?

  • How do you put water on the windscreen?

  • How do you clear the windscreen in the event that it is fogged up or there is condensation on it?

  • Where are the fog lights locates?


With the car started, the tester will now inform you to drive in the direction they have requested. You will now begin stage 4.

STAGE 4: THE DRIVE ITSELF

At this stage the tester needs you to demonstrate your theory knowledge along the route that they have chosen. All routes are equal in difficulty so it is down to you to prove yourself and show that you are a competent driver.

 

Remember to obey road signs and be considerate towards your fellow motorists. The examiner is looking for a well rounded driver. You need to remain calm and collected throughout the test and show the examiner that you can handle anything that may happen while driving. The tester will calmly instruct you where to go and when to go left or right etc..
