IAM Advanced Test pre-drive checks, cockpit check, and brake tests - Before the start of a drive, you should carry out pre-drive checks, a cockpit check and both static and moving brake tests. Starting your advanced driving test with these helps gives the examiner confidence that you have a good understanding of your vehicle and sets the scene for the drive. At the end of a cockpit check and before the start of the drive, we recommend that you 'look up and look out' and finish the check with the external factors which are relevant to the drive you'll be undertaking (examples could include, wet weather and its impact, low sun, driving at rush hour so increased traffic, etc).
Advanced Test Report Categories and Scores - During your advanced test, the examiner reviews 23 categories and scores each. The scoring and things the examiner is looking for you to achieve are explained here.
Our hints and tops bulletins look at the competencies of advanced driving and give hints and tips about how to put these into practice in your own driving.
