If you have, what was your experience like?
Did you pass first time?
What can I expect?
Any advice?
Thanks

what's an extended driving test
A quick search on Google will tell you: "An extended driving test is a court-ordered test that is longer and more demanding than the normal learning driving test. When disqualified as a driver or rider, the court can order you to re-sit your theory test and take an extended practical driving test before re obtaining your full licence."

Basically meaning the OP was disqualified from driving and is now having to complete an extended driving test to get their licence back

Same skills as standard test, but more opportunity to evaluate them. So you will do more of the set manoeuvres with the emergency stop definitely included and go on more road types particularly dual carriageway, if available. And as much as anything more time for unusual things to crop up and trip you up. I did the advanced driving test which was over an hour and more demanding because of the length. But if you’re competent it shouldn’t be a big problem to pass.

Id imagine an extended version of the regular test. Presumably they may get you to go a bigger variety of roads, multiple manoeuvres. If you can drive safely I don’t imagine it’s an issue.

This is all just speculative, although i am curious why are you being made to do the extended version?
