…which is better than I did in my regular driving test.To be honest, it’s probably pretty hard to fail your ARDS test. The test itself is fairly straightforward. A written session followed an on-track assessment. Provided you drive within your limits and don’t do anything dumb, you’ll pass.
My test day was at Brands Hatch with MSV. I invested in an hour on track with an instructor, before the test, as the test car was an unfamiliar front wheel drive Peugeot. I’m a rear wheel drive man and a Quattro man when it comes to Audi.
I also had to pass a medical. My NHS GP wanted to charge me £100 for this five minute medical. An MSA approved doctor who I booked online cost me just £45. So, there’s £55 I can invest in a tank of petrol.
The forms went in and within a couple of weeks been submitted, I got my race license .
I’m now Matt Pollard – National B Competition Licence holder. Find me a race track.
