How many minors can I get and still pass?

 

You can receive 15 minors and still pass, only a major or three of the same minor will result in a fail.

What is classed as a major fault?

Strictly speaking there is no such thing as a major or a minor fault.

When you make a mistake an examiner will class it as one of the following:

  • A dangerous fault – this involves actual danger to you, the examiner, the public or property
  • A serious fault – something potentially dangerous
  • A driving fault – this isn’t potentially dangerous, but if you keep making the same fault, it could become a serious fault

Both dangerous and serious faults come under what people would normally refer to as a ‘major’ and just one of either of these faults will result in an instant fail – although you will be expected to continue the test and will only find out the examiner’s decision at the end.
