Cardington, oh, Cardington,
I still hear your learners crashin,
while I watch the indicators flashin’.
(That’s a Glenn Campbell reference in case anyone was wondering)
I recently decided it was time to bite the bullet and take the only driving test I hadn’t taken – The Cardington Special Test. Created in collaboration with the ADINJC back in the 70’s it was designed to test ADI’s against the same criteria as Driving Examiners.
This test can only be taken by ADI’s and can only be taken at the DVSA Training Establishment in Cardington. It’s examined by the staff examiners, the same people who test and retest new entrant, and driving examiners.
The test lasts 90 minutes and covers a variety of roads including motorways.
