Knaresborough Driving Test Centre is situated around both urban and rural roads. Both road types are common during the driving test and are likely to feature on the Knaresborough driving test routes. Rural roads have different hazards compared to urban roads. Often the high speeds and sharp corners can be difficult for learners.

The country road driving tutorial offers help on this. The examiner will require you to demonstrate sound knowledge of most road systems including roundabouts, (this will often include mini roundabouts) junctions and crossroads. High speed ‘A’ roads such as the A658 are likely.

One of the test manoeuvre will be required (the choice is for the examiner to decide) along with the emergency stop having a 1-in-3 chance of being requested. All driving tests now include approximately 10 minutes of independent driving.

This involves following a basic map shown by the examiner, following road signs or a combination of both. Test routes are available for many of the test centres and may include Knaresborough 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.


Sitting a driving test in busy areas can be more challenging. It may be worth considering booking your test at a time when the roads are at their quietest and do not coincide with rush hour traffic in the mornings and afternoons. There are two methods for booking a test:

Book a driving test by phone
Practical driving tests in the UK are booked via the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). Driving tests can be booked by telephone or via the internet (see below). To book a test at Knaresborough Driving Test Centre, see the book a driving test section for booking contact telephone numbers. This is an automated service, though a DVSA assistant can be reached by following the options provided.

Book your driving test online
The most popular method for booking a practical test is via the internet. Upon making a booking, the available times and dates will be displayed for your chosen test centre. To make a test booking at Knaresborough Driving Test Centre, see the book a driving test section.

Rescheduling or cancelling the driving test
Please allow a minimum of 3 working days notice if you wish to cancel or reschedule the driving test from Knaresborough. Using the above contact methods will allow you to cancel or reschedule the test. Driving Tests can be rescheduled or cancelled. Changing your driving test date can be done providing three working days’ notice is given. To cancel your test and receive a full refund from DVSA bookings, three working days’ notice must also be provided. Saturdays are also classed as a working day.


Pass rates vary from each test centre, often due to the difficulty of the test routes. Some test candidates choose a test centre outside of their location due to the type roads that are taken on the test. The driving test pass rates section may show driving test pass rate statistics for your practical test centre.


Practical driving test centres can be contacted for various reasons including to see whether a scheduled test is going ahead due to bad weather for example (See driving tests in bad weather for further information), or to inform the test centre manager that you may be running late. Driving tests cannot be booked or rescheduled via test centres.

This can only be done via the DVSA. The Knaresborough Driving Test Centre contact telephone number may be located within the driving test centre contact numbers section or obtained from your driving test confirmation letter or email.
