DRIVE-TEST - STAGES 1 & 2

Importance of the STAGES:


Stage 1 = Low Speed Manouvres;

Stage 2 = More High Speed Stage.


The VicRoads drive test consists of “2” stages. No more than two “critical errors” are permitted for the whole of any drive-test (and no more than one critical error is allowed in the first stage). That is, if two critical errors are made in Stage 1, the drive-test applicant will not progress to Stage 2.


If an Immediate Termination Error is made at ANY point in the test, the applicant will fail.



Pass or Fail?


Contrary to what some people may tell you, the results of a VicRoads drive-test are NOT broadcast on a “Percentage” scale....


i.e., there is no such thing as having “got 98% for my test.”


At the end of the Drive-Test, the License Testing Officer will give their applicant a pink coloured slip of paper which will have either a “Pass” or an “Unsuccessful” box crossed. Any “Critical Errors” that may have been made will be noted in an appropriate box, and areas needing improvement (eg Mirror Use) will also have been checked.


If you receive a “blank” sheet, this will be as close as you will get to signifying a ‘perfect’ score, but nowhere on the sheet will there be listed any “%” score.
