There are two practical test centres in Carlisle. A test centre dedicated to LGV testing and the other centre for car, taxi and motorbike tests. The practical driving test will include a wide variety of roads set out on the driving test routes.
The driving test examiner will provide directions around complicated roundabouts (both large multi-lane and mini roundabouts), busy junctions, crossroads and a possibility of one-way-systems. Residential roads that are narrow, difficult to manoeuvre around and are hazardous due to oncoming vehicles are likely as are high speed A roads such as the A595 and A7. See passing parked cars tutorials for advice on narrow residential areas.
A good knowledge of test routes around the test centre will be of benefit. A thorough understanding of all test manoeuvres, the emergency stop procedure and the ability to drive safely on the independent part of the driving test is essential. See the Carlisle driving test routes for a good example of the various road and traffic systems you are likely to encounter during your test.
