Erith Driving Test Centre will feature many diverse roads and traffic systems during the driving test. Located in a busy area, the testing examiner will require a good standard of driving for roundabouts of all types including mini roundabouts, crossroads and various junctions types. One-way-systems are likely to feature and are usually placed on the test routes.

Other than busy town driving, rural roads are possible during the test. The country road driving tutorial offers advice for both learner drivers and experienced drivers using these types of roads.

Busy ‘A’ roads also being possible such as the A2016. A high knowledge of test route roads in and around the test centre will be of benefit. The test will also include one test manoeuvre and a 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure being requested.

By browsing the Erith 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.

i strongly believe that the reason why ERITH has such low pass rate is because of the examiners who are marking the candidates very very very harshly and I think this is because all the examiners are white and almost all of the candidates are non-white (mostly foreigners) and I definitely believe that there is an element of unconscious bias where by the examiners are already judging these candidates to be unsafe drivers due to their race and their inability to speak english properly.
the examiner's mind is already set to bias assumption that these candidates couldn't possibly be safe drivers. if only we had more diverse group of examiners than I think the pass rates in erith would definitely look different from how it currently stands.

Reading the reviews for the local test centres I frequently use just makes me laufh. For example Erith and neighbouring Belvedere test centres. The people that fail and will use any and almost identical language to slate the examiner ir test centre rather than look closer to home.
The reason you fail is not the exmainer being S*** its because you or your instructor is S***.

Ive seen it all, you fail and the examiner gets the blame. You pass and the intructor gets the praise.

I have candidates fail for sure. But i never take them for test if i think they wont pass. I hear other instructors talk about how they have just met the candidate for the first time today. How unprofessional is that? Then you fail and blame the examiner. Lol
Blame it on racism or the examiner getting out of the wrong side of the bed all you want.
I blame it on the learners who try to do it on the cheap and the instructors that are unprofessional enough to take the quick pound rather than teach safe driving.

But please keep doing it because its good reading while my pupil is on test, probably passing.

Did my Mod 1 motorbike test here. V friendly, humorous examiner who completely put me at ease and made it an enjoyable experience (if that is possible). He gave very clear instructions and if I was unclear, answered all my questions. Even cracked the odd joke. Then told me at the end I had passed. Highly recommend this centre for the motorbike test and will return for Mod 2 road test.

I say that people from my culture will try and do things easy way. I made mistake of believing that I didnt need lessons as if your invigilator fails you onece then twice you will pass third. This is not correct. I even changed to an instructor as i thought i would pass test in a proper instructor car but fail again. eventually i got instructor that taught me properly to drive and not give me car for money for just test. After 35 lesson i pass. If i did this at start i would have saved money. Do not take if not good enough. Do not buy instructors car for just the test. Find good instructor who will teach you. Every fail my friends or instrutor who take me for test will blame invigilator. Its not fair as same woman who fail me at erith pass me now i took lessons. That mekes me feel good and thank jesus for giving me same invigilator Louisa.
