THE DRIVING TEST IN Gateshead
Gateshead Driving Test Centre is situated in a busy town area where the test examiner will require you to demonstrate an excellent knowledge and safe understanding of all traffic systems including junctions, crossroads and various roundabout systems. One-way-systems may also be implemented on the driving test.
Rural roads are a possibility and due to the high speed of these roads along with sharp bends, rural roads are often hazardous. See the country road driving tutorial for advice on how to drive safely and appropriately on these road types for the practical test.
Busy ‘A’ roads such as the A1 dual carriageway. A single driving test manoeuvre will be required, 10 minutes of independent driving and a 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop being requested. The Gateshead driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.
