What is the DIAmond Advanced Test?
The DIAmond Advanced Test is a step up from the standard driving test and is designed to present a more stringent test of your driving skills.
Where the current Government standard driving test lasts for 35 minutes and allows up to 15 minor (driving) errors over the route, the DIAmond Advanced Test will take roughly an hour and take in many different types of road conditions. A maximum of six minor faults will be allowed.
This test is the first advanced test available to the general public which examines the Driving Standards Agency’s recommended syllabus for driving.
The way of driving will remain the same as you were initially taught but a higher level of competence and concentration is required.
All Driving Conditions Covered
Conditions can be entirely different when driving at night, or in adverse weather conditions, and as a result of this, your driving practices will change to suit the conditions.
Benefits of Being a DIAmond Advanced Motorists
As a DIAmond advanced motorist you will benefit from reduced insurance premiums due to greater driving skill and awareness. You will also have the confidence to cope with driving in adverse conditions and the ability to react to potential hazards safely.
