Exeter Driving Test Centre

There are two practical driving test centres in Exeter. A test centre that provides tests for cars and motorcycles and a test centre for lorries (LGV).

Starting the driving test on the outskirts of Exeter, Exeter Driving Test Centre will feature rural roads that require good practice due to possible high speeds and difficult bends. Our country road driving guide offers both learners and experienced drivers advice for using these type of roads.

Busy town driving is also part of the test and will feature various roundabouts, both large multi-lane and mini roundabouts typically found in residential areas. Junctions and crossroads of varying types will also be included. One or possibly two test manoeuvres will be implemented and generally a 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop.

Gaining a good knowledge of the Exeter driving test routes will provide you with an insight into the various roads and traffic systems that the examiner will take you on.

Driving tests can be booked at various times of the day. It’s often beneficial for learner drivers however to book their test during off-peak traffic times. Avoiding rush hour traffic often enables the test to run less stressful. There are two options for booking the practical test.

Book a driving test by phone
The book a driving test section contains the DVSA telephone numbers for booking a practical driving test at either of the Exeter driving test centres by phone. This telephone number directs you to an automated test booking line, although if you browse the option you can talk to a assistant.

Book your driving test online
Often the preferable method to book a driving test at Exeter Driving Test Centre is via the internet. This option displays to you all the available test slots allowing you to choose a time and day that is suitable for you.

Rescheduling or cancelling the driving test
3 working days notice is required to cancel the driving test at Exeter if you require a full refund. The same conditions apply if you wish to reschedule. Cancellations and rescheduling can be done via the contact details above.


Driving test pass rate statistics vary considerably depending on which test centre your practical is taken at. Browse the driving test pass rates section for information on your UK DVSA test centre pass rates.


You can call a practical driving test centre to inform them that you may be late. An examiner will typically wait for around 5 minutes for you to arrive before cancelling the test. Or the test centre manager can be contacted to see if a test is still going ahead, usually due to bad weather.

See driving tests in bad weather for further information. Test centres cannot be contacted directly to book or amend tests however, and this must be done via the DVSA (as above). Exeter Driving Test Centre may be listed in the driving test centre contact numbers section.
