An Autotest, also known as a 'Driving Skills Test' is an event where drivers are given a small course covering an area no larger than 200m square, to test their driving skills at low speeds. It usually involves driving in and around cones and barrels, reversing manoeuvres and slaloms, all against the clock.

Drivers each take it in turn to perform the test as quickly and accurately as possible. Points are given for time, 1 point for every second it takes to perform the test. 5 Penalty points are given for each cone or barrel struck during the test. If the test is performed incorrectly, a 30 point penalty is applied. The winner is the driver with the least amount of points at the end of the day.
