The driving test from Lowestoft Driving Test Centre starts from a nice quiet road situated on an industrial estate and will take you in around many narrow residential streets that can be challenging to learners due to width constraints. This often involves passing parked cars whilst dealing with oncoming cars.

The examiner will use such roads to test your ability at meeting oncoming vehicles and test manoeuvres. Lowestoft Driving Test Centre is likely to feature rural country road driving and out of town ‘A’ roads such as the A12 dual carriageway.

One of the test manoeuvres are to be expected to be completed and the emergency stop procedure having a 1-in-3 possibility. Test routes are available for many of the UK practical driving test centres and may include Lowestoft driving test routes. The routes aid test candidates in gaining an understanding of the various roads and systems that the examiner will take you on during your test. Routes can be viewed on this website or downloaded as an app.


Practical driving tests are conducted throughout the day, Monday to Friday. Test candidates tend to benefit from booking their test to coincide with the quietest periods of the day, avoiding rush hour. Certain test centres may offer Saturday test bookings, though at a slightly higher fee. Details on how to book your test can be found below.

Ridiculous driving test. Keep failing people for stupid reasons. Doesn't matter how good you are they always have some reason to fail. Should be review more times.

Be careful if you going to take exam in Lowestoft DSA test centre. As you get dumb ass Stuart Horn for manual driving test and you will failed!!! I have to do my test 4 times!!! I got pass then on Norwich on 5th time. UK's worst driving examiner.

My examiner was unfair. It was my second test and I was 100% sure I was going to pass. We then finished and she said I failed. I got 6 minors and a serious fault. The serious fault was being to close to a parked car which I think is a pathetic thing to fail on, just goes to show that they can only pass so many people a day. Absolutely Apuling, they need to reevaluate what they are there for not what they are getting paid for.
