From 1 November 2021, a new task of independent driving – driving according to navigation – will be introduced to category B practice test.
This innovation aims to ensuring that, after passing the test, the future driver would feel more confident in his abilities and be as prepared as possible for real situations on the road: would learn to distribute his attention correctly and plan a trip on his own, without the training instructor or examiner.
After the addition of the new task, the practical test evaluation system remains the same. As during the entire test, the examinee must observe the environment, the behaviour of other road users, and abide by the Road traffic rules.
It is also important to know that in the event that, during the test, the driver will inadvertently not turn where needed or take a route other than that indicated by the navigation device, this is not considered a mistake and will not affect the final result of the test. In such cases, the driver should not get confused and follow the traffic signs until the navigation device will recalculate the route.
