THE DRIVING TEST IN Peebles
The driving test from Peebles Driving Test Centre will include rural country driving, town and village and high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A72. Rural roads in particular can be challenging for novice drivers as they are often high speed combined with harsh bends.
The country road driving tutorial offers advice on how to best establish a safe and appropriate speed for these road types. The driving test is to include a single test manoeuvre (occasionally two) and is likely to incorporate the emergency stop procedure.
The examiner will require approximately 10 minutes of independent driving. Test centre routes are designed by the examiners who conduct practical tests at their local test centre. The routes are designed in such a way so to involve as many diverse roads and traffic systems as possible, often including very challenging parts.
Gaining knowledge of the test routes provides valuable insight into the type of roads that will be taken during your test. Driving test routes may be available to view or a downloadable app for your mobile device in your area, including Peebles Driving Test Centre.
