How Is The NSW Driving Test Scored

How is Your Driving Test Scored | LTrent Driving School

In NSW, your Driving Test is scored based on your ability to demonstrate low-risk driving skills in different situations. You must meet the driving standard and complete the test activities within the specified time to pass. Your examiner will look at how safe you’re when driving, how you react to other road users, and how you comply with road rules.

You’re required to complete a Hazard Perception Test (HPT) before taking the Driving Test. This test will allow you to earn your driver’s licence. Upon passing the Driving Test, you will be given your provisional P1 licence, and you will be free to drive anywhere without a supervising driver or a log book. Passing your Driving Test should be easy when you work with a professional trainer.
