The Driving Test – Following Distance

Following Distance

  • 2 second gap in dry weather
  • 4 second gap in wet weather
  • As the car in front of you drives past a parked car or rubbish bin, start to count in seconds. You should have reached that parked car or bin just as you’re counting to 2 or 4.

Remember the faster you are driving the larger the gap will be as the gap is measured in seconds.
