How To Pass Your Driving Assessment Summary
The How To Pass Your Driving Assessment handbook produced by the Department of Transport aims to prepare learner drivers for the Practical Driving Assessment (PDA) they must pass before getting their provisional licence (red Ps).

Although the PDA is a practical, in-car assessment of your driving - the theory resources available can still assist your preparation. This handbook outlines the criteria you must meet and skills necessary to pass the PDA. It also highlights what you should do to avoid failing. Reading through the criteria (which can be found here under 'Prepare for your Practical Driving Assessment') forms the base for an appropriate preparation for the PDA.

Driving Test WA has produced a summary of the How To Pass Your Driving Assessment handbook (which condenses and synthesises the 88-page handbook into 33 pages) to help you prepare for the PDA. This can be used as a tool for revision.
