THE DRIVING TEST at Garretts Green

Garretts Green Driving Test Centre provides tests for lorries (LGV), bus and cars. The test starts off at an industrial area and will extend into various other routes. Expect the examiner to take you along a wide variety of roads, from busy town driving, high speed ‘A’ roads, dual carriageways and the possibility of rural type roads.

Rural roads often have a national speed limit (60mph) and when combined with harsh bends, can represent a challenge. The country road driving tutorial offers guidance on how to use such roads. During town driving, the test routes are designed to take you through as many traffic systems as possible.

Tutorials for such systems include crossroads, junctions and roundabouts (including mini roundabouts) of all types and sizes. Independent driving utilises basic maps and directions from the examiner and takes around 10 minutes of the test.

Expect the test to include one of the possible four test manoeuvres along with the emergency stop. The Garretts Green driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.


The majority of busy areas generally suffer from traffic congestion at peak rush hour times. Whilst booking your practical test, avoid if possible these peak traffic times to allow for a less stressful test. To book your practical test, you have two available options.

Book a driving test by phone
The book a driving test section contains the DVSA telephone numbers for booking a practical driving test at Garretts Green Driving Test Centre 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 Garretts Green 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.

I passed my driving exam 6 months ago, left a review on Google with a big thank you to my examiner CARL and driving centre on Garretts Green. Sometimes still read new reviews. I'm just shocked that one person left a such a rude and disgusting review about Carl... He failed because on his own fault and tried to blame an examiner. Carl is an amazing examiner, he made me feel so comfortable on exam, gave me clear instructions, I didn't have to ask him twice. I made 5 minor mistakes, which I absolutely agree. I failed twice before on the same test centre, just because I couldn't overcome my nerves and was so stressed. Carl was lovely, it's didn't feel like exam, just like driving with my instructor. He is such a credit for Garretts Green driving test centre. And if you have him on your test and failed it's just your own fault! Just except it and for a next test come well prepared.

The reason why I'm writing this review is to say thank you to my examiner CARL, very professional, with years of experience but at the same time very nice person. He helped me to overcome my stress and made me feel comfortable from the beginning of exam till the end. I went on exam well prepared by my instructor, the rest was just stay calm and use the knowledge I've been given and I did it, I passed!
Great experience, recommend this test centre!
