THE DRIVING TEST IN Hyde
Hyde Driving Test Centres test routes will involve many different road types and road systems. The examiner will be testing your ability on various junction types, crossroads, roundabouts and possibly one-way-systems. Another road type that is common is quiet, narrow residential roads.
Although appearing to be easy, hazards occur with oncoming vehicles and narrow lanes. The passing parked cars tutorial offers advice for these situations. Fast paced ‘A’ roads will be taken such as the A627 and A560.
One of the possible four test manoeuvres will be required along with the emergency stop procedure being a 1-in-3 possibility. Test routes are available for many of the test centres and may include Hyde driving test routes. Viewing the test routes provide test candidates with an insight into the various types of roads and traffic systems they’re likely to encounter.

A few days before my test after reading the reviews I didn't want my examiner to be Allen based on the reviews people gave about him, but when I went for my test I got really nervous at the start hearing Allen is going to be my examiner. I was thinking I'm definitely going to fail. However, after a few mins into my test I started to just focus on my driving and be confident. Allen passed me at the end and yeah he wasn't too bad after all, so I'd say it depends on how a person handles themselves during the test. rather than focusing on the examiner. I'd say Allen is a little scary at first but he's a fair examiner.
The examiner Allan, is rude and nasty. I was tearing up as he was talking to me.
He is very aggressive and patrionising. At the end of the exam he really goes on at you. I was asked a question about power steering, and at the end of it I said ‘you just kinda know, and can feel it’ this is at the end of a scripted answer, in my debrief he said extremely aggressively ‘you can’t just know!’ Which I felt was very rude and I wanted to cry the whole time I was with him. Don’t recommend
So I've had my test twice at this center now 1st time i had it with Paul who was a nice Gent. I failed on 4 minors one being a serious as i pulled out to close to a parked car which failed me!! I was only round the corner from the center. Then today i had the best guy ever. His name was Bob, when i first seen him i thought omg he wont pass me. My judgement was wrong he was the funniest, nicest, most down to earth man ever!! He made me feel comfortable as soon as i got in the car. Bob you're a ledge and thank you so much 😁
Allan Parkin, where to start with him. Failed me on one serious fault, I was creeping out of a side road and I MEAN creeping out, then he slams on the brakes as there was a car coming. The said car didnt have to slow down or move over as I wasn't in the way and wouldve stopped on my own accord! Also a very rude man, extremely impatient with me despite my nerves. About to start reverse parking on an incline and he puts his arm up and looks at his watch! Infuriating!
Would give no stars if it was an option! Turned up today (my test day) to be told my test had been cancelled and rearranged and that they had sent me an email a few days earlier stating that my test had been changed due to "the examiner being unavailable" This email went straight to my spam and was never even seen! I had booked my test through a fast pass type company - who were also not even made aware of the cancellation! After spending over £1000+ to have a 2 week 30 hour course right before my test, this is an absolute joke and complete waste of my money!! On top of that to then be told that its my fault I didn't check my spam emails is a complete joke - a text message or phone call to make sure I'm aware of the situation is the least they can do. The staff were awful and not at all sympathetic to my situation. Avoid this test centre at all costs!
