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 have few attempts in Erith and never again as the examiners rude, talk to you like you so little, I am foreign and it’s seems they don’t have much love for us, few woman I met they don’t even look professional or presentable on the day, they talk to you down as well and don’t have much respect! Avoid avoid avoid this test centre

I've seen some people say the examiners are racist I don't believe that is the case. However they are more bent than my mums male hair dresser. I don't believe they care about the colour of your skin or where they're from as im english and white but talk a bit common but if they have a certain idea about you from the way you talk something you said or the way you said it, or simply you don't crawl up there arse far enough like a rat up a drain pipe they will abuse they will abuse the power they have and fail your test exercising their control over your life. My examiner for example, apparently 10mph is with my foot on the clutch got their poor heart racing so much they ssimply had to slam their foot went on the break...
1/10 do not recommend, only reason I'm giving them a 1 and not a 0 is because at the very least they had a bog for me to drop heavy guts in

Instructor was very rude, I’m not impressed by their attitude and will not ever use this test centre again and will pass the word around! I will be telling people to go else where as Erith Test centre is not a good place to go to pass. They will always fail you!

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.
