Navigation element added to driving test

Changes to the driving test coming into effect in the UK later will see people following a route "independently".

Candidates will not receive step-by-step directions from their examiner during the 10-minute section, which will test how they drive unsupervised.

Test route maps will no longer appear online but the Driving Standards Agency says learners can ask for reminders and will not be failed for getting lost.
