Belfast Driving Test Centre help

Both Balmoral Driving Test Centre and Dill Road Driving Test Centre will feature a similar test in terms of road types. Dual carriageways are located close to each test centre and likely to feature on the driving test. Large multi-lane roundabouts to small in-town mini roundabouts will most certainly feature.

Also common during a practical test are rural country roads. From either test centre this is a possibility. Within Belfast itself, driving examiners take test candidates in and around residential areas, typically an ideal location for one of the possible four driving test manoeuvres. Busy urban road will take you over many junctions and crossroads of all types.

Within the 35 to 40 minutes driving test duration, the emergency stop may be requested. There is around a one in three test possibility of the emergency stop being requested by the examiner.
