This also includes taking the theory test.
The theory test for a previously disqualified driver is the same as other learner drivers theory test although the extended driving test is much more challenging than the typical learner drivers test.

Extended driving test, how hard?
The extended driving test isn´t necessarily harder as such, you won’t be expected to do anything different than that of a normal driving test. The extended driving test simply lasts longer and you will be doing more, therefore there is a higher possibility of something going wrong.
You are at this stage a provisional driving licence holder and essentially a learner driver. The driving examiner will be assessing you as a learner and you still have up to 15 minors that you can gain before failing. As with the normal driving test, more than 3 minors in the same category will also fail a driving test.
