Situated on the busy city roads of London, Goodmayes Driving Test Centre test routes will involve many complicated roundaboutsjunctions 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.
