Practical driving test in Mainz or Frankfurt am Main - what you need to know

We make sure that you are perfectly prepared for your driving test.

Have you passed the theory test, completed all the special trips and feel confident driving? Then all that's missing is the practical driving test so that you can hold your driver's license in your hands! We will advise you in detail on the requirements, the tasks and the duration of the practical test.

Content of the practical test for the driving license

Before driving begins, a visual inspection of the vehicle is on the agenda, during which the driving examiner will ask you three questions. You then adjust the seat, mirrors and steering wheel - and then you're ready to go! There are three basic driving tasks in the test for category B: reversing to the right using a junction, driveway or intersection, reversing into a parking space, reversing into a parking space, emergency braking and reversing. Depending on the driving examiner, there are also other tasks such as driving on the highway.

Things to know and tips on the driving test for your driving license

It's perfectly normal to be nervous before your driving test - after all, it's the last step on the way to getting your license. If you follow a few tips, you will be relaxed and confident on the big day. You should get a good night's rest before the test and go to bed early the night before. On the day of the exam, allow enough time for the journey to the exam so that you are on time. Before driving, adjust your seat position, the steering wheel and the exterior and rear-view mirrors. If you do not understand the examiner's instructions correctly, feel free to ask them again. Try to remain calm and rely on the knowledge you acquired at driving school. After a few minutes, most test candidates have become accustomed to the situation, are calmer and concentrate fully on driving. Always look in the mirrors, look over your shoulder, always keep to the permitted speed, pay attention to other road users, approach junctions slowly and listen carefully to the examiner's instructions.
