Birmingham Shirley Driving Test Routes

Recently the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) stopped publishing the driving test routes for each test centre to prevent test candidates from practicing the routes that the examiners take you on.

The driving test routes for Birmingham Shirley may have altered in the mean-time, although it is likely they are very similar if not identical. Listed below are the driving test centre routes for Birmingham Shirley, routes 1-5.

The Birmingham Shirley driving test routes should be used for a guide only as test routes are for the discretion of the test examiner and may be subject to change.

Driving test routes incorporate the most challenging areas to drive in that particular location. Study the roads and the routes to establish which areas you will need practice on.


Driving test routes for Sat Nav, Google Maps, Google Earth, iPhone, Android & CoPilot Live are available. Browse to see if the Birmingham Shirley driving test routes are available for your device in the Driving Test Routes for Sat Nav section.
