THE DRIVING TEST at Goodmayes
Situated on the busy city roads of London, Goodmayes Driving Test Centre test routes will involve many complicated roundabouts, junctions and crossroads. A high level of practice and knowledge of such roads in and around the test centre is beneficial. Narrow residential roads are often featured as part of the driving test.
These roads involve narrow lanes, sharp bends and oncoming traffic, often with many parked cars. See the passing parked cars tutorial for further advice. Busy ‘A’ roads such as the A1083 and A118 are highly likely as are dual carriageways such as the A406, A12 and A13 with a slight possibility of more rural roads that are within test centre radius.
The driving test examiner will require at least one driving test manoeuvre with a 1-in-3 possibility of incorporating the emergency stop procedure. Goodmayes Driving Test Centre has a small car park that is frequently used for the bay parking manoeuvre. As the car park at Goodmayes is small, try not to arrive for the driving test more than 10 minutes before the test booking time as this may conflict with other learner drivers returning from their test.
The driving test from Goodmayes Driving Test Centre is challenging due to difficult roads and roundabouts. As Goodmayes is located in a busy area, more emphasis is placed on busy urban roads and very little on country roads and driving. A good understanding of the driving test routes from Goodmayes Driving Test Centre will benefit you with knowledge of the types of road you will be taking during the driving test. Driving test routes for sat nav and other navigation devices are available and have been updated for the 2019 driving test.

I had a test with the examiner Kevil Bardman today (3rd December 2019). Kevil was a friendly, but professional examiner. He put me at ease and so allowed me to perform at my best under test conditions.
I am very happy with my driving test today and managed to pass.
I had taken my test and passed with a really lovely examiner named Amilia I really hope I got his name correct. He is a lightly spoken Asian man. Previous to him I had taken my test which I failed about a month ago and it was with Ghazala I believe that was the ladies name . Like many of the other reviews I really felt uneasy and more nervous. I am not sure but maybe she thinks she working for the ‘police’ as I felt like I was in presence of someone who had some type of authority...the examiner Amilia was truly a breath of fresh air . He was super nice and friendly and to be honest if I failed I would of been happy to fail with him I wouldn’t care as much as he had a lovely attitude and his mannerism was really nice ... thank you Amilia ... I hope I am saying your name correctly if not please forgive me 😊
took my test a few weeks ago. had a terrible examiner called Ghazala, v. rude, and made me feel on edge throughout. stress induced by Ghazala coupled with exam nerves made me fail with 1 serious un-freaking-necessarily. rude throughout 😒😒. hated every minute.
other examiners seemed alright but my heart dropped when she called out my name. looks v. strict 2🙄
Had the test few weeks ago my examiner was GHAZALA , before test I was very nervous but she made me feel comfortable during my test very professional but friendly lady thank you
Had an amazing driver examiner her Name was Jo. She made me feel so calm and we had a good chat too
