THE DRIVING TEST IN Gloucester
Gloucester Driving Test Centre is situated within busy city roads and close to rural roads. The test examiner is likely to select both road types during the driving test. The examiner will be testing your ability at junctions of varied types, roundabouts and crossroads.
Busy ‘A’ roads such as the A38 are likely. The rural types of roads often represent a challenge to many drivers, not only learners due to the potential high speeds and sharp corners. Our country road driving tutorial provides advice on how to safely use these road types.
Often in the test, small residential roads are selected due to being hazardous for narrow width constraints and meeting oncoming traffic. See passing parked cars for a insight on using these particular types of roads.
A single driving test manoeuvre and a 1-out-of-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure being requested. The Gloucester driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.

Passed second time at Gloucester. Had a really patronising blonde woman on first test. She was nice but spoke to me like I was 5 or something. Can't complain about the result, I really messed up! Second test with Nick was great. A really calm guy, he should do those relaxation tapes! The extra practice paid off and Nick put me at ease so it all seemed easy second time.
I've taken several tests and some them was really
Unfair justification.specally there one fat examiner i don't
Know his name, how he faild me was complitly unacceptablr
. """ Nick is nice"
Terrible examiners and an unfair testing procedure. I was failed due to the examiner not paying attention, and claiming I missed one of my shoulder checks. He was rude and patronising, and gave me faults for the tiniest things. Utterly terrible.
Fabulous first test with a man either under name of Nick or Pat. I made a major mistake and he politely explained it all to me at the end. Had a horrendous experience with a man called Jerome today. He sighed and made loud exgerrated apologies to other drivers when I hadn't even affected them and they were miles off to try and belittle me. Asked me to park on the right and i hesitated because a car was coming towards me. He kept saying park on the right in a pressurising tone until I did and then sighed and shouted sorry at the other car even though it had stopped. Before I reversed two car lengths he said reverse two car lengths without driving too far to the right making a presumption that I would do it wrong and throwing me off. At the end of the test I felt very anxious around this mans aggressive bullying attitude. He asked if I wanted to hear the faults as he could clearly see I was upset and crying. Anyone with any people skills would just deliver the information without an attitude however he continued by telling me that changing gear a little close to a roundabout was a serious danger to other road users and starting laughing at me. If I get him again I will not continue with the test. Rude, bullying and no need for this kind of behaviour when people are already highly stressed and nervous. Fine someone fails but no need to bully and humiliate them. Thanks.
What a horrible experience! Previously I had tests with both Nick and Jerome. Although I failed, they were very nice and explained why. On my 3rd test I had a young woman called Cat. She was so patronising! She talked to me as if I was thick and told me how much people like her voice! Ha! Squark more like! When I failed her justification was pathetic. I have come away feeling angry and frustrated.
