Vehicle On the Road Test

The Vehicle On Road Test will test your skills and knowledge as a safe and competent driver. It may take up to 45-60 minutes to complete all elements of your test.


You will be required to demonstrate 5 slow speed manoeuvres, (moving off from the kerb, 90-degree angle parking, U-turn in traffic, 3-point turn and reverse parallel parking) as well as a general drive. The general drive component will test your driving skills e.g. changing lanes, turning on and from busy roads, turning at traffic lights, negotiating roundabouts, stop and give-way signs, your interaction with other road users and the system of car control.


To pass a VORT you must demonstrate 5 slow speed manoeuvres and in combination with the general drive score a pass mark of minimum 90% or more and not breach any road law during the drive. Any breach of road law will result in an immediate fail and the test will be terminated.


If you are unsuccessful your examiner will debrief you on the reasons why. A copy of the test marking sheet will be given to you detailing your performance.


The VORT is conducted on a test route set by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles.  The test route is designed  to enable you to demonstrate safe operation of a motor vehicle and interaction with other road users in a range of situations.


You are not permitted to undertake a VORT with any Authorised Examiner who has contributed to your training within the last six months.  An Authorised Examiner must book your VORT at least two full days prior to the date of the test.


If you are the holder of a Learner's Permit and fail a VORT, you must wait at least 14 days before attempting another VORT. If you are the holder of the Temporary Permit, and fail a VORT, you must wait for at least 3 days before another attempt.

Prior to taking the VORT, we highly recommend you to take driving lessons to prepare for the test.

Please, contact us to book your VORT training course or lessons.
