Step 2 - Drive test

The Drive Test is made up of two parts:

  • a pre-drive check and
  • on-road driving.

The on-road driving component is divided into two stages. You must pass stage one in order to progress to stage two.

Your mentor driver from the L2P program will help you with the process of getting your license. You will most likely use their car when you go for your drive test.
