As Hamilton Driving Test Centre is situated around the outskirts of Hamilton, it is likely that the driving test will involve both rural roads and busy urban roads. For rural roads, the country road driving guide provides tips on how to use these challenging road types.

A high level of safety and ability on roundabouts, junctions and crossroads will be required and a high standard of skill, accuracy and awareness for for the test manoeuvres. One test manoeuvre will be requested out of the possible four.

The emergency stop procedure has a one-in-three chance of being requested. Ten minutes of the driving test time will be set aside for the independent driving. The Hamilton driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.


Practical driving tests can be booked from early morning to late afternoons. Certain test times can clash with rush hour traffic. Avoiding these times can be beneficial for quieter roads during the test. To book your driving test, see the options below.

This is the worst test centre ever. Examiners are assholes and expect from you seriously bullshit. If you have choice another test centre don't hesitate with that.

Done my DAS for a full A licence for motorbikes with Route 66. Sam was my examiner, he’s a lovely guy who WANTS you to pass, I failed 3 times before passing on my 4th, and all 3 times it was me who failed, not Sam. An instructor can’t ‘just fail you.’ Don’t come across as a wanker and he’ll like you. He’s one of the DVSA’s most experienced examiners, being over 70. But don’t let that fool you, he’s as sharp as a tack and has the memory of an elephant. Don’t argue with him on the debrief like some do, there’s no point. Enjoy!

A joke of a centre I sat my mod 2 on the 5/3/20 and the examiner put me at unease straight away he asked me too read a number plate on black car that I did then he says not that one the one behind it which was blocked he might have thought it was funny I didn’t , then on road test very early on I made a mistake fair enough then he comes over the radio and says this is no good can you not read which absolutely floored me and just wanted too get off the bike and walk back and various comments throughout the ride I’ve been driving for over 30 years and never had an accident he made me feel like a school boy fair enough I failed his but his attitude stinks - the guy after me passed but had a full blown argument with him and I know he did worse than I did and he passed but he was also fuming with his bloody attitude - my instructors have been amazing with all their help but I for one won’t be going back there for retest I would think twice about anyone going there after what I have read and heard but if your unlucky enough too get this guy hopefully you pass with flying colours just be positive 👍

The woman examiner is extremely harsh and desperately trying to meet her fail quota
Can someone inform her the majority of people don't need to flip their head from side to side to see out their mirrors, I can look with my eyes thank you
I recommend you take your instructor with you if you get her
They won't be able to do anything but it might make you feel better knowing you failed from the awful bad luck of getting her rather than any life
threatening majors

My wife has been tested 3 times at this centre, each time a female examiner has deliberately selected her and then failed her for vague faults. Examiners have zero repercussions as there is no redress system beyond an appeals process which cannot overturn a result.

Her instructor has informed her that further lessons would be pointless as she already surpassed the required level of readiness to be tested. My wife is Asian and I never imagined it, however it is becoming apparent that the examiners so far simply don't want her to pass and I'm starting to think there is some sort of prejudice.

These people need to be brought to heel since they seem confident that can behave with impunity. No doubt this will receive zero response since they know they can only bully people they think they can get away with bullying.
