Courts have the power, for some of the more serious driving offences, to order disqualification until extended driving test is passed. These offences include motor manslaughter, causing death by dangerous driving and dangerous driving.
The extended driving test is longer and more rigorous than the normal 'L' test. It therefore provides scope for the driver to be tested in a greater variety of road and traffic conditions.
Extended Driving Test Training
Within the extended driving test normal assessment should be applied by the driving examiner. However, examiners are mindful that driving test candidates are likely to have considerable experience, prior to their mandatory disqualification. Therefore, when you are preparing for your extended driving test it is important to choose a driving instructor and training course that doesn't treat you like a learner driver.
