Birmingham Driving Test Centres

Birmingham Driving Test Centres are located in busy city roads, much of which is involved during the driving test. A certain amount of the driving test is also likely to be driving around small residential roads.

These roads are challenging due to road constraint widths and approaching vehicles driving past parked vehicles (see passing parked cars) and from closed junctions. Good control of the car whilst looking ahead for areas to pull over to give way are essential.

High speed primary route ‘A’ roads are highly likely to feature as part of the test. Some of these roads may include the A435, A34, A45, A452 and A4041. A good judgement of speed whilst entering such roads is important. Rural roads may also play a part from certain Birmingham Test Centres (see country road driving). These roads can be demanding due to their high speed, narrow widths and bend negotiation.

One in four of the driving test manoeuvres will need to be accomplished successfully on the test and a 1-in-3 chance of the emergency stop being requested. 20 minutes of test time will be reserved for the independent driving.

had my test at Sutton Coldfield. the instructor was horrible middle aged bald white man. he said follow my instructions and then asked me to turn right into a one-way road trying to confuse me but I still looked ahead and turned the correct way ignoring his wrong direction. he failed me giving me a serious tick towards end of test saying I blocked someone's way although I was on my side waiting in my waiting spot - if I waited any further back it wouldn't have allowed me to turn once clear, I was in correct waiting place. he smirked failing me and said I kept getting lucky throughout the test but got a serious at end as if he was just waiting for a reason to fail me all along. so disappointed.
