THE DRIVING TEST at Gipsy Lane
Although Gipsy Lane Driving Test Centre has reasonably high pass rates, there will still be difficult and challenging roads during the test. In-town driving will take you over all traffic systems. A good knowledge of the local systems around the test centre such as multi-lane roundabouts, junctions and crossroads of all types will benefit.
Other roads likely are dual carriageways such as the A563 and possibly country roads. See the country road driving tutorial for advice on using these road types for the test. You will be expected to demonstrate one test manoeuvre from the four available, Bay parking is possible as Gipsy Lane Driving Test Centre has bays.
The choice of manoeuvres is for the examiner to decide. The emergency stop is a probability as it is requested one in every three tests conducted. Independent driving takes around 10 minutes of the 30 – 40 minute driving test.
The Gipsy Lane driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.
