THE DRIVING TEST IN Galashiels
Galashiels Driving Test Centre is likely to incorporate a mix of busy town driving, rural and high speed ‘A’ roads during the driving test. Rural roads in particular represent a challenge to most drivers due to harsh corners combined with high speeds. See the country road driving tutorial for advice on how to use rural roads.
A high standard of accuracy and skill is required for the test manoeuvres, of which one will be requested. The emergency stop procedure is also likely as it has a 1 in 3 chance of being requested during the practical. The Galashiels driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.
