Located on the outskirts of Grimsby, the driving tests at Grimsby Driving Test Centre will likely incorporate multiple road types. From busy high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A180 to rural roads. Although rural roads tend to have far less traffic, they represent one of the UK’s most hazardous roads due to potentially high speed and sharp corners.

The country road driving guide offers advice on how to use these specific roads. Busy town driving where the examiner will test your ability at roundabouts, junctions and crossroads. One of the driving test manoeuvre will be asked for and the emergency stop procedure has a 1-in-3 chance of being requested.

Grimsby DRIVING TEST Routes

The Grimsby driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on and offer valuable insight into the types of road you will take.


It can be of benefit to test candidates to book their practical test outside of peak traffic times. Often early mornings and late afternoons, rush hour can make a driving test more stressful. To book your practical test, there are two options:

Book a driving test by phone
The DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) automated telephone number allows for a practical test to be booked at Grimsby from the selected free slots available. Contact and booking telephone numbers can be located within the book a driving test section. If you wish to speak to an adviser, listen to the options provided in the recorded message.

Disgraceful behavior from an examiner. He was so horrible that i had a panic attack. I couldn't breathe, my legs were shaking so i couldn't even keep my feet on the pedals, crying, and strangely he thinks someone driving like that is safe. I took one wrong turn. Legal and safe turn, to which he should have just redirected me. He didnt, he had a go at me instead. Before getting in the car i told him i was nervous, but he talked over me. After his unnecessary outburst the panic set in, i couldn't drive. 3 minutes later i knew i had failed, so i terminated and made him walk back to the test centre as there was no way i was continuing with such a horrible man and there was no way i was fit to drive in that state, surely being an examiner he should know that someone cannot drive like that. Another weird thing was the tell me question. I was asked about the ABS and although i was right, he nearly didnt give me it as i didnt know what colour it was, even though the colour is not included in the answer on the government website or any other revision. If i booked again here and he came out, i would just leave.
Absolutely disgusted and its seriously put me off. In my opinion driving tests should be recorded. The examiner i had before him was great.

My daughter's test was cancelled because the examiner refused to take her out because when she pulled up with her instructor they were not wearing a mask. As soon as they stopped she put her mask on. The Government website states you have to wear a mask for your test, unless exempt. She was wearing a mask ready for the driving test. DO NOT MAKE UP YOUR OWN RULES!! Please provide me with a number as I want to complain. And I want the name of the examiner, he should be struck off.

Hello Kevin. You will need to complain to and contact the DVSA. Please search for DVSA driving test complaint.
