Test Routes & Stages

Assessment on a Drive Test route involves two different stages - Stage 1 lasts 10 minutes and involves relatively basic driving tasks in a quit traffic environment and Stage 2 lasts 20 minutes and involves more advanced driving tasks in challenging traffic conditions. At the end of Stage 1, the LTO asks the applicant to pull over to the kerb to calculate the marking the applicant scores so far in that stage and entered the score on his/her sheet. Both the Stages (Stages 1 and 2) must be undertaken during a single test booking, which cannot be split into two separate appointments.
