Southport Extended Driving Test Routes

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

Detailed below are the official extended driving test routes for Southport Driving Test Centre. The test routes are developed by examiners from the actual test centre to incorporate a wide variety of roads and traffic systems.

The DVSA and test examiners develop extended driving test routes for the purpose of retesting disqualified drivers. A court has ruled that an extended driving test must be passed before before the individuals licence is reinstated. Extended routes are different from normal learner routes. If you would like to view the standard learner test routes, please see driving test routes.

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 Southport extended car routes 1 to 4.

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 practical extended driving test.


Extended Driving test routes for Sat Nav, Google Maps, Google Earth, iPhone, Android & CoPilot Live may be available. Browse to see if the official DVSA Southport Driving Test Centre practical test routes are available for your device in the Driving Test Routes for Sat Nav section.
