Failsworth Driving Test Centre is situated in a busy environment. The testing driving examiner will require you provide good and safe ability at various road systems including roundabouts, crossroads and junctions. Busy ‘A’ roads will be likely such as the A62 and rural roads may feature.

Rural roads can often be dangerous due to the potential high speeds combined with harsh corners. See the country road driving tutorial for guidance on these road types. One driving test manoeuvre will be requested with a possibility of the emergency stop procedure.

By browsing the Failsworth 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.


It’s often beneficial to consider the time in which you book  your driving test carefully. Avoiding peak rush hour times will usually result in a less stressful practical test. There are two methods that a practical test can be booked.

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). Failsworth Driving Test Centre may be listed in the driving test centre contact numbers section.

This test centre fail you for absolutely nothing at all, my first test was with an Asian man with a big beard, throughout the whole test he stared at me and didn't focus on my driving whatsoever and failed me. I took my second test today and the examiner was very calm and made me feel at ease and comfortable however I got failed yet again for doing nothing wrong even my instructor was in awe as to how I failed.

Lady examiner failed me the moment she saw my foreign surname. Turned around and asked me: Well what shall we call you then? Got into the car, she seemed pissed off right from the start and grabbed the steering wheel within 5 minutes of driving away. Kept looking at her manicure the entire time. At the end she told me the reasons that I failed but were different from the ones that she put down on paper.

I wouldn't ever recommend anyone to go here. The polish instructor is the worst one you can go with he talks to you with no respect and fails for his own faults by keeping his face in the clip board, how is that anyone's fault. Rude rude rude instructors and they need to be taught some manners can't have a conversation. They get money to fail people well let's see how long that money will last them. Absolutely rubbish examiners. So many horrible reviews and they can't sort their people out, they love taking money of people but won't change their examiners because it will cost them. Pathetic people who run that test centre they don't even deserve one star.

Examiner rude when walking to car before my test when I was just trying to be polite to calm my nerves so this made my nerves worse before setting off! It appears to be the same issue on these reviews with the examiners personal skills. I hope the powers that be read and act on these as this is the most nerve racking experience for everyone! So a little politeness to make people relax a little would help.
