Clacton-on-Sea Driving Test Centre is situated around town roads that will include various challenging traffic systems such as roundabouts, both normal and mini roundabouts, crossroads and junctions of various types and sizes.

Rural roads being likely on the driving test represent one of the UK’s most dangerous forms of roads. See the country road driving tutorial for further help. Also high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A133 dual carriageway. 1 or perhaps 2 of the 4 driving test manoeuvres will be asked by the testing examiner with a 1 in 3 chance of the emergency stop being performed.

By browsing the Clacton 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.

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.


Driving test pass rate statistics vary considerably depending on which test centre your practical is taken at. Various statistics including the driving test pass rates for Clacton-on-Sea Driving Test Centre can be found in the pass rates section.


Though it is possible to call driving test centres directly, if you wish to book or alter a driving test, this must be done via the DVSA (see above). Clacton Driving Test Centre telephone number may be either located on this page or via the driving test centre contact numbers section. Test centres can be contacted only for an up to date status of tests, such as whether they are still being conducted in bad weather for example. See driving tests in bad weather for further information.

I've had 5 tests at 3 different centres (Southend, Tilbury and Clacton) and Clacton is by far the best. The waiting list to book a test is only 2 weeks (Southend is 3 months!) and the area is pleasant and easy to drive through. Have had 2 examiners during my tests there, Tina and John, both are really friendly and helped me to relax. Passed today with John, am so so pleased. After having the same incredibly rude examiner at Southend twice I was so relieved to come to Clacton and not be so nervous as the examiners were very polite and friendly. Would recommend this test centre to anyone struggling to pass.
