Southampton Driving Test Centre information

Based on the outskirts of Southampton, the driving test from Southampton Driving Test Centre will feature many diverse roads. Road types to be expected are rural village and country roads, high speed dual carriageway systems such as the A3024 and busy in-town and city driving in Southampton itself.

The examiner will be looking for a high standard of all road systems including roundabouts, both mini and multi lane, junctions and crossroads from small unmarked to large multi lane light controlled systems.

Quieter residential streets often used for manoeuvre purposes are also used to asses your ability for parking, meeting oncoming vehicles whilst parked vehicles are present and good clutch control in areas of slopes.
