Various types of roundabouts including large and busy multi-lane to small residential mini roundabouts, crossroads, junctions and one-way-systems will feature and a good standard of driving will be expected.

Narrow lane residential roads will feature, requiring a good level of car control and observation for oncoming vehicles. High speed ‘A’ roads to include the A23, A235 and A236 are likely to feature. The driving test examiner will assess your ability for a minimum of one driving test manoeuvre and a 1 in 3 chance of the emergency stop procedure.

The roads that you will take on your driving test from Croydon can be busy, incorporate many difficult roundabouts and traffic systems. Gaining an understanding of the Croydon driving test routes will benefit you in understanding the type of roads the examiner will be taking you on.

Not only am I leaving a bad review here, I am officially making a complaint to the DVSA for how I was treated. Roger from the Croydon test Centre fro the get go, was intimidating, rude, demanding and demeaning. He believes he has some sort of power and he was instantly rude to me. I will do everything in my power to ensure that this low life loses his job and can no longer work with the public.

Shouted on me. Very bad experience

I have read some very bad reviews about this test centre so I was dreading my test today. I need not have worried my examiner was called Barry, he was very professional and a man of few words but the words he did say kept me calm at a very nerve racking time. Barry explained my faults very well at the end. I think it's good to give praise where it's due and he was excellent.

Roger is a grade A ****, rude and unnecessarily harsh
