QUESTION:  Can I use my own vehicle?

ANSWER:

Yes, of course!  As long as your vehicle is well maintained, clean and tidy, and a reliable vehicle to use on an ongoing basis then this will be acceptable.  You would need to ensure that your vehicle is fitted with dual controls.

QUESTION:  Can I use my own vehicle to take the Part 2 and Part 3 driving tests?

ANSWER:

Yes.  You will need to check that you have the required insurance through your insurance company that covers you for Parts 2 and 3. For the new Part 3 test, there will no longer be a ‘role play’ situation.  Therefore, you will need to provide your own pupil to take the Part 3 test, as you can practice with this pupil in your spare time.
If required:  a driving instructor vehicle can be provided for your test – subject to availability.
