Test routes from all practical test centres are designed to incorporate as many different road types as possible. As well as urban roads, a driving test from Heckmondwike Driving Test Centre is likely to incorporate rural roads. See country road driving for advice on using rural roads.

During the test, the examiner will require a demonstration of your ability at busy road systems to include: roundabouts, junctions, crossroads and one-way-systems if present. A single driving test manoeuvre is requested along with the emergency stop procedure that has a 1-in-3 chance.

The Heckmondwike driving test routes may be available to look at as a reference to the various types of roads that the examiner will take you on during the test.


Choose a time for booking your test that has less traffic on the roads to allow for a calmer practical test. Booking your driving test can easily be done via two methods.

Stuart was very rude (tall skinny guy, glasses)
Unnessarily aggressive.

 by Victoria

Tall skinny guy with glasses is so rude, you can tell he is not enjoying what he is doing or enjoying failing people on the smallest possible thing! He failed me 2 times in a row, giving me only one serious fault for very silly thing such as: diving to close parked cars! SERIOUSLY! My instructor never noticed this during my lessons and was very surprised when seen comment like this! Hope i'm not going to get same guy for 3rd time now!

Experiences are subjective so I can't speak for anyone else's, but I have only good things to say about this test centre. I passed my test there first time so my experience of this centre was fleeting but my examiner, Marie, couldn't have been nicer. She settled any initial nerves I had just by being pleasant in personality and accommodating. I witnessed all the other examiners greet there examinees in the waiting area and they all seemed perfectly pleasant also. This centre has something of a reputation because of its low pass rate but that, in my opinion, has nothing to do with the examiners being "worse" than anywhere else. Build up your experience and skill to an appropriate standard and drive with safety in mind on the day and you'll pass. Try to rush the process and cut corners and it will show on the day and you'll fail. These examiners are well-trained, they know what they're looking for and it simply isn't in their interests to fail you for what you consider to be "nothing". Thanks again Marie.
