About the Car Test

The Car Test

The RoSPA advanced driving test is regarded as the most comprehensive and challenging available to the public. It is monitored and approved by the DVSA.

The test lasts around 45 to 60 minutes and is taken with a RoSPA Examiner, all of whom are serving or retired Police Officers in the UK.

The RoSPA Advanced Driving Test is unique as it is graded Bronze, Silver or Gold. A RoSPA gold is the highest civilian driving standard available and the holder will be a master of his or her art. To see more about what is expected, download R0SPA’s  Car Test Guidelines(PDF 228kb).
