The ADI Part two Ability to Drive test lasts for approximately 60 minutes and consists of 2 sections that must both be passed in the same attempt. The test assesses if your competency level of driving is high and confident. You have 3 chances to pass the Part 2 Ability to Drive Test.

The first stage of the test involves your eyesight in which you must be able to read in daylight, a registration number that contains both letters and numbers.

Here are the following distances:

  • 26.5 metres for vehicles with a new-style number plate
  • 27.5 metres for vehicles with an old-style number plate

If you fail the eyesight test it will be counted towards one of your attempts.

You will be asked 5 Show Me, Tell Me Questions before getting into the car.
For each question you get incorrect, you will receive 1 minor fault

The practical part will last approximately 60 mins and will include the following:

  • Turn in the road
  • Reverse to the left
  • Reverse to the right
  • Parallel park/Bay Park
  • Independent driving
  • Emergency stop

The ADI part 2 test is also different from the learner’s test because you are only allowed up to 6 minor faults over the course of 60 minutes.

The examiner is looking for the following skills during the 60 minutes of driving:

  • Expert handling and control of the vehicle.
  • Concentration and anticipation of other road users.
  • Demonstrate good following distances and use of speed.
  • Follow road procedures.
  • Safe driving and consideration to other road users.
  • Follow the rules of the road and highway code at all times
