In the first revision for 20 years the UK driving test may no longer contain the dreaded three-point turn, as well as other possible revisions like reversing around a corner. The move was explained by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) as an effort to make the test more like realistic driving conditions.

The story was covered in a news report by the BBC:

“The three-point turn could be dropped from the UK driving test as part of biggest update to the exam in 20 years.

Under a revised practical exam, learners may also be asked to use a satellite navigation system instead of following road signs.

About 1,000 learners will take part in a trial of a new practical exam.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency said any eventual changes would be subject to full public consultation.”

This will probably come as a relief to younger drivers who will also benefit from the fall in the price of the driving licence.
