Located on the outskirts of Bournemouth, Bournemouth Driving Test Centre is situated around busy urban and rural roads where bends may be difficult to navigate due to oncoming vehicles. Small residential roads often feature on the driving test to give the driving examiner an understanding of your ability to deal with oncoming vehicles on narrow lanes.

Primary route ‘A’ roads such as the A341, A347 and the A 3060 are also likely to feature. The ability to understand fast approaching traffic on joining an ‘A’ road is essential. A thorough understanding of all 4 driving test manoeuvres is important and the ability to perform the emergency stop procedure safely.

To find out more information for the type of roads you will be taking from Bournemouth Driving Test Centre, visit our driving test routes section to gain an understanding on the various road types and traffic systems you will encounter.

I had my second test today and I had the same driving examiner as last time, I failed again. She made me feel uncomfortable. I was trying to make conversation to help with the pressure and she just gave short blunt answers. She made me nearly hit another car whilst squeezing through a tight gap. Then after the debrief with my instructor she gave a sarcastic inconsiderate comment on my failure.

It was awful she was rude, cold and horrible, she was distract by waving to others on test she, waved her hand outside of the car which was distracting as i had no idea what she was doing.This is just one thing she did she did observe me looking in the mirror as she was looking out the widow then said i did use then. She also took me to a roundabout where the marking where faded then freaked out saying i was in the wrong lane over all if you get the woman you will most likely fail
