THE DRIVING TEST IN Leighton Buzzard

The Leighton Buzzard Driving Test Centre is situated around both rural and urban roads. Both road types are likely during the driving test. Rural roads are often difficult for novice drivers due to applying the safe and appropriate speed around the often harsh bends.

The country road driving tutorial offers help on this matter. Test routes are designed by the examiners who conduct tests at the local test centres. The routes specifically incorporate some of the most challenging and varied roads and traffic system in the location. High speed ‘A’ roads such as the A505 also being likely.

A high standard of road systems such as roundabouts, crossroads and junctions on major and minor roads is important. The test will incorporate a single test manoeuvre along with the emergency stop procedure that has a 1-in-3 possibility of being requested.

All practical car tests now include approximately 10 minutes of independent driving. this requires the test candidate to follow a basic map shown by the examiner before setting off, following road signs or a combination of both.

Ray was a great examiner made me feel at ease which is what I needed. Very really good examiner. Either way I would have given him great feedback if I passed or failed

Sack a lady with long dark hair ASAP.
Calling the car filthy before the test has started??? Whats that got to do with the price of fish??? Asking the driver to pull up on the left when a bend is coming up and then sternly saying, 'why didn't you listen to me,' when it clearly isn't safe.
Creating additional pressure as well as what is already on the driver by being rude and blunt is unacceptable!!!
This test centre and invigilators need a proper look at it. Diabolical.

My son has failed 4 times in LB, all due to completely stupid, little mistakes, even though it's blatantly obvious he can drive - probably better than those witches. One time, someone came tearing round a roundabout WITHOUT INDICATING, my son moved inches forward, not even across the line & she didn't give my son a chance to stop & slammed on her brakes. Not doing test in an instructors car any more and ditching LB completely. They fail everyone unnecessarily. It's all contrived in my opinion.


How is it possible to have 5 exams with the same examiner (no pass ) they fail the drivers (truck drivers) only for m...... ,IGNORANT examiner ,please go to different one center LGV - POL -ROM -EUROP not much chance to pass 7,8 ,9 times

The woman is beyond rude and made my sister shake in hysterical crying. She shouldn't be allowed to work with people in this manner.
Raising your voice at a 17 year old is not acceptable especially when they are on a road which could cause an accident.
Leighton buzzard should do an internal refresh of their examiners.
