THE DRIVING TEST IN Guildford
As Guildford Driving Test Centre is situated on the outskirts, a wide variety of road types is likely during the driving test. Expect town driving to incorporate busy roundabouts, from large multi-lane to residential area mini roundabouts, various junctions and crossroads.
Narrow residential lanes and roads are often taken during the test, providing hazardous conditions due to width constraints and oncoming traffic. The passing parked cars tutorials offer guidance on these road types.
Rural roads can be difficult due to harsh corners (see the country road driving tutorial) and ‘A’ roads such as the A3 Dual carriageway system is a probability. The testing examiner will request one manoeuvre out of a possible four and a one-in-three chance of the emergency stop procedure being requested. Independent driving is around 10 minutes of following basic maps and road signs.
During the driving test from Guildford Driving Test Centre, many difficult roads and roundabouts will be taken. By viewing the Guildford Driving Test Routes, you will gain a better understanding of the various roads that the examiner will be taking you on during the driving test from Guildford. The time of day that you book your driving test for this test centre will also make a difference. Booking the test between the times of 10AM and 3PM should result in less traffic during your test to deal with.

I had my test here on 17th October which was very positive and I passed. Unfortunately I handed my driving licence to the instructor to be sent away and the customer services department have lost it. They have not explanation other than for me to fill out a D1 form and pay £20 for a new licence. DVLA have no record of it. Send your own would be my advice.
I took my trailer test here. I drove around guilford a few times prior to the test. My examiner was very very miserable but it just made me more determined to pass. I felt extremely lucky on the day that he chose a country route with easier roads than those that are in guilford town. My advice would be to get familiar with the area as it is a difficult place to just turn up and wing it to test standards. I passed with 1 minor.
