Tips – The Vicroads Driving Test Procedure

The Vicroads Drive Test Procedure

  • The Vicroads drive test is split into 2 stages. Stage 1 goes for 10 minutes and stage 2 for 20 minutes.
  • Stage 1 is the easy stage where you will drive mostly in back streets. You will have to perform a reverse parallel parking or 3 point turn. Typically the tester will ask you to do parking unless they cannot find an appropriate spot. You will then be asked to pull over and stop at the kerb where safe and the tester will add up your score. If all is good the tester will ask you to continue with the drive.
  • In stage 2 of the Vicroads drive test you will venture out onto main roads (multilane and high speed roads, major intersections) and amongst heavier traffic where you will be asked to perform turns and lane changes. In some cases the tester will ask you to perform lane changes and in other cases you will be forced to do lane changes due to traffic conditions i.e. parked car blocking your lane or left lane ends merge right sign. It is important you listen to the tester’s instructions and if in doubt you may ask the tester to repeat the instruction.
