THE DRIVING TEST IN Macclesfield
The various road types taken on the test routes from Macclesfield Driving Test Centre are busy urban roads, high paced ‘A’ roads such as the A537 and A536 and rural country roads. Rural roads in particular can be challenging due to the frequent high speeds and meeting harsh corners.
The country road driving tutorial aims to offer advice on how to use safe and appropriate speed for these road types. The examiner often tests your ability on residential roads where test manoeuvres often take place. These roads are also ideal for testing your ability for meeting traffic within narrow lanes and dealing with the situation accordingly.
The passing parked cars tutorial offers advice on this. High driving proficiency at traffic systems such as roundabouts, crossroads and junctions of all types and sizes is essential. The examiner will request one of the possible four manoeuvres along with the emergency stop having a 1-in-3 chance of being requested. Driving tests now all require the test candidate to demonstrate around 10 minutes of independent driving.
Test routes are available for many of the UK practical driving test centres and may include Macclesfield 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.

Worst experience of my life have had 3 or 4 tests here each time has been horriffic and full of confusion and no clarity of instruction whatsoever by the examiners. They dont care about passing the candidate and the reason its so easy to get a booking is probably because everyone knows this except idiots like me. One in particular is a complete disgrace shouldnt be an instructor as she lies about major faults when there is none, then when confronted over this starts making up other minor faults to cover her lie. Without naming and shaming her i have accounts of multiple people who say they refuse to go back to macclesfield because of her. Of my own experience i went in unaware, experienced her lies first hand. the second time i went in with the sense of dread because i never wanted to see her again in my life and yet they had rebooked me with the exact same woman again i will never go back to macclesfield test centre as long as i live they should be ashamed.
I’m absolutely fuming. My instructor made me MISS my test by calling the wrong test centre and they said I didn’t have a test today (BECAUSE IT WAS TJE WRONG TEST CENTRE) and we didn’t have time to go back so I called macc test centre and they were no help at all. I demand my £62 back for this absolute ridiculous event.
Examiner is horrible , failed me for stopping at a traffic light
First test my examiner was really rude which made me feel very nervous. I instantly failed within the first 5 minutes and I began crying, yet she still forced me to drive the rest of the test even though I was extremely unsafe and shouldn't have been on the road driving. Second test, my instructor was really good, yet the test ran longer than 40 minutes and I failed as I was too close to a van whilst on the way back to the test centre. On my third test, I had the same woman that I had on my first test and she failed me for undue hesitation even though it was very busy and cars were speeding. And also apparently my approach speed was bad even though I was in second gear for nearly all junctions (except give ways). Everything else on my third test was perfect. Seems impossible to pass here and that it is a money making scheme. I've lost nearly £300 just to book a test as it costs £69 each time (plus paying £50 to the driving instructor each time).
Really not satisfactory... prepare to fail for "nothing" if you take your test here. Are the examiners getting back handed deals from instructors, they all seem VERY friendly and happy to pass on the "failed" information. Something the DVLA should look into perhaps.
