Kingstanding Driving Test Centre offers challenging road types during the test. A high level of experience will be needed on both busy city roads, including all roundabouts, junctions and crossroad types. The test is also likely to take you out into rural country roads. Rural roads represent their own unique set of challenges. The country road driving tutorial offers advice on these road types.

Residential streets although quiet can be hazardous due to meeting oncoming vehicles in narrow lane areas in combination of parked vehicles. See the passing parked cars guide for further information.

These road types are also often used for manoeuvre purposes and the emergency stop procedure. The examiner will request approximately 10 minutes of independent driving.

Test routes are available for many of the test centres and may include Kingstanding 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. Kingstanding driving test routes for sat nav and other navigational devices have been fully updated for the 2019 driving test.


Many of the available driving test centres provide Saturday tests. By taking your test on a Saturday often reduces the amount of traffic on the roads. Alternatively, if booking during the week, booking between the times of 10am and 4pm will benefit by missing out on rush-hour traffic. See below for details on how to book your practical driving test.

Failed 5 times for very harsh marking. 2 test were my fault and I'll admit that. However the other 3 was ridiculous, firstly the instructors were very belittling in the sense of constantly looking at you and making smug faces for minor mistakes. Secondly, they use the break whenever they feel; I was at a t junction rolling to a stop at like 2mph and he assumed I'd take the turn even though I noticed the oncoming vehicle and made the assumption that I'd go for it even though I slowed down to 2 MPH. Another incident would be getting done for steering when going around parked vehicles, this is something they are extremely biased with. On several occasions, I creeped up to a park car giving it well over 2 metres of room whilst giving way for oncoming vehicles, but when going off from the standstill position; you will automatically get a major for being too closed to parked cars. You'll get a serious for steering or awareness which I think is bullsh*t purely because as the driver, I'm well aware of how much space my vehicle needs and even doing it several times on one test, I never ever came close to hitting the parked car. Examiners need to be assessed for an attitude check as well as an update on how to drive

My instructors tyre was faulty so my test was cancelled, the manager kindly allowed me to rebook for later that day after the tyre was changed. The manager arranged the test and was my examiner, he is brilliant. I was so nervous but he was so respectful and genuine. The examiner I had initially for the test that was cancelled was not as friendly and made me feel even more nervous. The route was fair, I followed signpost directions and was scored fairly. Couldn't fault the manager, went out of his way to help and I passed!
