Chester Driving Test Centre is situated around rural roads where bends may be difficult to navigate due to oncoming vehicles and difficulty judging speeds (see the tutorial for country road driving for further guidance).

The driving test will take you into Chester where roundabouts from large multi-lane to small mini roundabouts used in residential areas, junctions, crossroads and possibly one-way-systems will be used.

The test examiner is likely to assess your ability at dual carriageway roads such as the A494 Chester bypass and complete one of the potential four driving test manoeuvres.

The emergency stop procedure is also often, but not always requested. By browsing the Chester driving test routes section, you will gain a good understanding on the various road types and traffic systems that the examiner will take you on.


Driving tests cannot be booked through the test centres directly. To book a driving test, there are 2 options; by phone or online.

Test centre tips
If your driving test centre is located in a busy area, it may be of benefit to book your driving test in between the times of 10am and 4pm. This way you will miss out on rush hour traffic that can be problematic for learner drivers. Alternatively, some driving test centres offer test bookings on Saturdays. Driving test fees at the weekend are increased.

The worst test examiner ever. Will screw over innocent young people like he did with us Firefighters. Untrustworthy people

Awful examiner today, there is a way of putting your point across about the mistakes made without getting under someones skin!

Instructor was nice at first, I already knew I had failed before I did my manoeuvre. Yet when I went to do my forward bay park I drove around the car park to find the right spot, she stopped and and told me to drive into a certain bay which I wasn't comfortable with. Driving examiners should not tell you which bay to park In. It put me under a lot of pressure and she marked me down for it!

Instructor has no idea what he's doing. Pulling up next to you at junctions to talk when you are supposed to be making a turn. Completely puts you off. Also has a bad attitude and lied about what happened. Totally unprofessional

 by R Wilson

Totally dependent on time and instructor. Try avoid the 9am test or anything before, as the roads will be heaving with impatient traffic. It's far easier to pass with few cars around
