When should you book your Theory Test?

When should you book your Practical Driving Test?

I will advise you when I feel you will be ready to attempt the Practical test. I base this on the number of lessons you are taking and the waiting time for the local test centres, this assumes you will maintain the same number of lessons per week to achieve the required standard. If you reduce the hours you put in this is likely to mean you do not meet the required standard in time for your test

I have a responsibility not to allow my car to be used for a test if I feel the candidate may cause danger through not being at the standard required.
