There is also a possibility that the driving examiner may take you on a one-way road. Many learner drivers fail due to the fact that they do not realise that they are on a one-way system. It is therefore vital, that you watch all road signs and road markings throughout the driving test. Scanning from left to right, not just the road, but the pavement as well.

The driving examiner may take you out of Banbury into the rural country roads. Is also a possibility of days high-speed ‘A’ roads such as the A422.

Therefore, if your instructor is not available on the day, you will not have a vehicle.

When you book your last-minute intensive driving lessons, you will have the choice of learning in an automatic or a manual car. Last year alone, there were over 1.7 million driving tests conducted. Out of these, only about 30% were taken in an automatic car.

Manual or Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons

It’s easier to pass your driving test in a week by taking an automatic car compared to a manual. This is because you don’t have the extra task of changing gears, especially on approach to junctions such as roundabouts. This, in turn, means that you will have more time to focus on the speed and observations on the approach to such junctions. Once you’ve passed your driving test in an automatic, you will be restricted to driving only automatics. However, you are most welcome to upgrade to a manual license by retaking and passing another test.
