Standard Procedure for Conducting Driving Tests

Dangerous Driving

The manoeuvres, i.e. the reverse, turnabout, and hill start, should be carried out if at all possible. If not possible insert the words "not carried out" on the back of the copy of the Report Sheet and write 'Route curtailed in the interest of safety'. An 'L' Certificate and Report Sheet should be issued. A short report must be written on the back of the copy of the Report Sheet outlining the circumstances. On the return journey to the office, the applicant should be advised of danger etc., where necessary. Where an applicant enquires as to why the 'time' element of the test was not completed, the tester should inform the applicant that the test has been curtailed in the interests of safety.

Inadequate progress is not a reason to curtail the test
