Test Centre Details:  One step is required to access Kings Heath Driving Test Centre. The driving test centre is located in a row of shops alongside the Iceland Supermarket. Candidate parking is not available. Driving tests begin from Stotfold Road or Hawkhurst Road in either direction. At busy times, parking can be difficult so is advisable to allow plenty of time to get to test centre. No toilet facilities at the test centre. Nearest toilet facility is at Zanzibaris Supermarket which is approximately 3 minutes walk.
Test Centre Provides Tests For: Car


Located close to busy main route roads, Kings Heath Driving Test Centre will feature challenging aspects of the routes such as the A435 and it’s multi-lane and fast pace roundabouts. It’s likely that country roads are taken during the test which will feature villages on the outskirts. Read the country road driving tutorial for tips on rural roads on the test.

Villages or quieter residential areas will be used for test manoeuvres and the emergency stop procedure. On every three tests conducted, the emergency stop is requested once.

Dual carriageways, city roads or country roads can all be part of the independent driving which will take place over around 10 minutes of the 30 – 40 minute driving test.

Test routes are available for many of the test centres and may include Kings Heath 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. New 2019 driving test routes for sat nav and other navigation devices have been added for Kings Heath test centre.


If your test centre offers weekend Saturday test, this may be an option as traffic density is often reduced at these times making the test easier. Alternatively, if you are booking the driving test during the week, choosing a time outside of rush hour, such as between 10am and 4pm, this may also be of benefit. Driving tests can be booked at the Kings Heath Test Centres, details found below. Alternatively, view the Birmingham Driving Test Centres section for other test centre availability.

My daughter had a test on Wednesday 4th September she failed its not that she failed it was her examiners attitude she said he was wound up from the moment she started her test complaining he'd be late for his next appointment he failed her on driving to slow on a road by a school with parked cars on either side and she made a car slow down on the roundabout but there was no car when she started her manuvere.when telling her and her instructor that she had failed they said they thought the decisions was unfair he then started to raise his voice and tell them it was his decision her instructor had to tell him to calm down well that what I call professional NOT.. a test is bad enough without an examiner acting this way.

I had my test Friday afternoon I was very nervous but felt at ease with my examiner steve he didn't talk much but seemed very friendly. I believe the test went well but I did not pass as I stalled at a busy junction. Looking forward to my next test
