Bradford Driving Test Centre

Located in a busy city, The Bradford Driving Test Centre examiners are there to assess your ability to drive at complicated roundabouts, junctions, crossroads and one-way-systems. A thorough understanding of these systems is essential.

Residential areas will be accessible by small narrow roads with little passing space to oncoming vehicles. (See passing parked cars and mini roundabouts.) These types of roads are hazardous and are common place in the driving test.

Primary route ‘A’ roads such as the A 6181. A850, A658 and A6176 are likely on driving tests in Bradford. High speed roads such as these require a good understanding of approaching traffic speed before joining.

Rural roads also being a possibility, present their own hazards by offering high speed combined with difficult bends to navigate (see country road driving). An excellent understanding of all four driving test manoeuvres, the emergency stop and the show me tell me questions and answers will be required.

The best examiner ever T.bhattie very nice and calm person his debrief was very good made me feel very proud of my self thanku sooo much

 by Kaz

examiner names KAZ greeted me by screaming out my name and made me jump, he then told me to sign the paper but not pointing where, I signed the wrong box by accident to where he scream NOT THERE JESUS CHRIST SIGN HERE! pointing at a small box in the corner, he then sighed very loud and snatched the paper from the table He then chucked at another instructor on the way out who he was talking to before I arrived, and said 'Wish me luck mate' At this point I already lost all my confidence and wanted to cry, I took the wrong turning in my test and I would have been safer to drive on but Kaz grabbed my steering wheel and turned the car to the left which was very dangerous. he was extremely intimidating and had his arms crossed huffing and puffing throughout the whole test, If he doesn't want to work there then why Is he there?!
