The satnav or Independent Drive.

At the start of the driving test or part way through the examiner will tell you that you will now use a satnave or do the independent drive.  He/she will either set up a satnav and ask you to follow the directions or give you a number of directions telling you to follow signs towards a destination.

The idea of this is so the candidate cannot use the timing of the directions as a q for timing the routine on approach to junctions,roundabouts and other hazards.

This seems a good idea to me but I still think that adequate hours spent driving before the driving test is the way to a first time pass and safe driving for life.
