THE DRIVING TEST IN Lee on the Solent

The driving test from Lee on the Solent Driving Test Centre will involve both busy urban driving and rural roads. For rural roads, novice drivers find adapting the speed for often harsh corners difficult. The country road driving tutorial helps to explain safe and appropriate speed for these road types.

The examiner will be assessing your ability at road systems including roundabouts, crossroads and junctions. Small and narrow residential roads are often taken during the test where hazards occur due to oncoming vehicles and narrow lanes.

This combined with parked cars can be a challenge. Read the passing parked cars tutorial for help. One test manoeuvre along with the emergency stop having a 1-in-3 possibility of being requested.

Test routes are available for many of the test centres and may include Lee on the Solent 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.

Past first time here, great examiner and happy with the result. Guessing most of the people on here are just negatively reviewing in haste of their failure. Discuss your concerns with your driving instructor/parents etc if you have any and best of luck for the test

 by Kate

Although this was my first test and I don't have any other experience of a test centre, and I failed sadly, I found the instructor kind and fair, she has taken a bad wrap on here as I also had K, but I found her very professional and kind. The only reason I give 4 stars is because my only criticism is that I didn't really understand her explanation of why I had failed, but I'm not sure if this was just because I was disappointed and extremely nervous rather than her ability to inform me well.

I was treated with the utmost professionalism by my instructor (who goes by K). My instructor was professional and personable. The instructor was helpful in explaining the procedures & process prior to testing, as well as answering questions and communicating clearly during the test. My experience was 5***** from introduction to salutation. This was the highest quality test I have ever encountered. Thank you K for a positive experience!
