THE DRIVING TEST IN Downpatrick
Expect a combination of town driving and rural country road driving from Downpatrick Driving Test Centre. From Downpatrick itself, the driving examiner will take you around specific test routes designed specifically to incorporate as many diverse road types and conditions as possible. Junctions and crossroads will vary from quiet residential ‘closed’ types to larger and busy multi-lane.
Within the 35 to 40 minutes of the practical driving test, you will be required to demonstrate one driving test manoeuvre. These are typically requested on quieter residential areas or villages outside of Downpatrick.
The driving test will also test your ability at roundabouts of all types and sizes, including mini roundabouts. Practice as many diverse road types and traffic systems as possible in preparation for taking the practical test at Downpatrick.
In particular, practice the roads in and around the test centre itself as these are the locations where many driving tests are failed. The emergency stop procedure must also be perfected as it comes in with a one in three possibility of being required during your test.

Choosing the best time for your driving test can make a huge difference.
