The Q-SAFE practical driving test, introduced on 29 June 2015, enhances the driving test by placing an emphasis on high-risk manoeuvres and safe behaviours including:

  • Zero tolerance to speeding.
  • Appropriate following distances.
  • Turns at a variety of intersections.
  • Appropriate hazard perception.
  • High speed merging or entering a high-speed area.

You are more likely to pass the Q-SAFE practical driving test if you have at least 100 hours of supervised experience driving in a broad range of situations and conditions.
