Edinburgh ADI Driving Test Routes

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) no longer publish learner driver or ADI driving test routes for public viewing.

Detailed below are the ADI driving test routes for Edinburgh Driving Test Centre. The test routes are developed by examiners for potential driving instructors to be taken during the ADI Part 2 test.

The test routes may have altered as this is down to the discretion of the examiner, or they may remain similar or identical. Test routes are for Edinburgh, ADI routes 1-5.

Use the test routes below to form a knowledge base for the various types of roads and traffic systems that you will encounter during the ADI Part 2. The routes are to assist potential driving instructors into formulating their own routes for the Part 2 test based on the structure of the ADI routes found below.


ADI Driving test routes for Sat Nav, Google Maps, Google Earth, iPhone, Android & CoPilot Live may be available. Browse to see if the Edinburgh driving test routes are available for your device in the Driving Test Routes for Sat Nav section.
