Inverness Driving Test Centre

There are three practical driving test centres in Inverness. One test centre conducts tests for cars and Approved Driving Instructor, another for motorcycles and lastly, a test centre for large vehicles (LGV).

The practical driving test for cars will feature a variety or road types. Busy town based roads will see the learner driver cover many forms of traffic systems. Notably varied roundabouts, from large multi-lane to mini roundabouts typically found in residential streets.

Various types and sizes of junctions and crossroads typically feature on the test routes. As you head out of town, the examiner may take you on routes of a rural type. The country road driving tutorial aids novice drivers to gain an understanding of appropriate and safe speed in which to navigate these road types.

Rural roads can often be challenging due to high speeds and sharp corners. High speed ‘A’ roads usually feature. All practical tests now feature one test manoeuvre instead of two.

The independent part of the driving test now replaces one of the manoeuvres, where you will be required to follow basic maps and/or road signs. The emergency stop procedure is probable as it is requested by the examiner on one in every three tests conducted.
