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.


Always choose your driving test booking time carefully. Choosing a time that clashes with peak traffic rush hour may see you sitting in traffic more, but will also put you in direct contact with stressed drivers trying to get home. To book your practical test, you have two 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 Gloucester 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.

I passed my test recently and I wanted to convey my gratitude to one of the examiners. Nick. I suffer with extreme anxiety so test situations are horrendous for me. I had had 3 tests previously. All were terrifying experiences made worse by stern, unfriendly examiners. One in particular was almost rude in his manner. I was going to give up after that test but my instructor, bless him, persuaded me to continue.
The test with Nick was completely different, he was warm and friendly creating a relaxed atmosphere in which I almost forgot my nerves! I am not really sure how he made me relax because we didn't talk much but it felt like driving with my instructor and i was finally able to show that i can drive!

So thank you Nick for being human! 😂

Ok so it's a test centre. It's scary, liked the dentist, only i would rather go to the dentist than have another test with the old guy there. Definitely needs to be put out to pasture. So miserable. In the end i passed with one of the new guys. Paul or Robbo or something. He was bang on. Super fair and helpful. Cheers mate. My instructor told me it is a much better place now there are some new blokes. Look out for the manager though she doesn't get off her chair much and is really grumpy when she has too!

I had 2 tests here. I failed with Nick who was friendly and gave me useful, constructive feedback. I made a stupid mistake (Make sure it is your light thats green!). On my second test I had a young guy called Matt who was also really friendly but better than Nick because he passed me! If all the examiners are like these guys you should not fear your test. I was dreading my test but both were actually fun experiences!

I had a very scary large "lady" with lots of hair. She really looked like she had swallowed a bee throughout the test. Her silent treatment made me very anxious. It's not easy to drive at your best like this. Very unhappy and even more nervous for next time now. The other examiners all looked far more friendly. Perhaps they are miserable too once in the car.
