Situated on the outskirts, Coventry Driving Test Centre will incorporate typical road systems such as roundabouts, both large muli-lane and small mini roundabouts, various junction types, crossroads and one-way-systems. The testing examiner will require you to have a safe and good understanding of these as well as one of the driving test manoeuvres.

The emergency stop procedure may also be a requirement of the driving examiner. High speed ‘A’ roads to include the A444 and rural roads are likely to feature on the driving test from this location. Rural roads are often difficult. See the country road driving tutorial for further help.

By browsing the Coventry 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.

Book a driving test by phone
To book a practical driving test at the Coventry driving test centres by phone, see the book a driving test section for test booking telephone numbers. The above DVSA (recently changed from the DSA) telephone number is an automated service. The option to speak to a DVSA assistant is available if required.

Book your driving test online
To book your driving test online for Coventry Driving Test Centre, see the book a driving test section for all DVSA contact information, plus online practical test booking details.

Cancel or reschedule the driving test
A full refund is available if you wish to cancel the driving test in Coventry provided 3 clear working days notice is given. The above conditions must also be met if rescheduling the test. The above contact information can be used for these purposes.

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.
