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.


Practical tests can be booked throughout the day at the majority of UK driving test centres. Certain test centres in busy areas also offer Saturday test booking, though the booking fee is slightly higher. Booking a driving test is easily completed via telephone or via the internet.

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 Macclesfield 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.

Rescheduling or cancelling the driving 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.


Your practical driving test centre contact telephone number (including Macclesfield Driving Test Centre) may be located on your test booking email confirmation, or found within the driving test centre contact numbers section. Test centres must not be contacted to book, cancel or amend a driving test however (see above), and only to contact the centre manager if you have any questions or concerns regarding your test, for example if a test is still going ahead due to bad weather (See driving tests in bad weather for further information).

I am leaving this review on behalf of my son since he won't do it. I was an observer and he was failed for nothing. Wish we'd taken the reviews seriously. Avoid this centre. Nil point but it won't let you not do a rating

Just had a test. I failed. Fair enough, i’m not that bothered, didn’t do enough observations for my reverse bay park. But the examiner (i believe his name was John) possibly the most condescending, rude, unfriendly little shit i’ve ever spoken too. Told me off for trying to initiate a conversation, and acted like I had murdered several children for the debrief. Then merrily marched away.

I have had two exams now at this driving test center and have failed both times with the same examiner. The examiner is rude during the test and explaining afterwards. On the first occasion I failed on something that could not be avoided due to the road I was on. The second occasion I failed for something that would definately be classed as a minor. I also received a minor for doing 25mph in a 30 zone whilst going past a speed camera as apparently this was way too cautious. I believe everyone will know which examiner I had and I believe she should not be working as an examiner anymore. She is a cold lady with no respect for the learner driver. My driving instructor also believes that both times should only have been a minor and definitely not a serious fault. I will be trying a different test center for my third test.

If you have any history of anxiety or anything do not do your test here. The examiners are very rude ( not sure if they all are ) and do not make you feel comfortable or safe and that causes driving to be a lot worse.. My test was a few days ago and unfortunately i failed, however my examiner couldn’t give me a reason why i failed apart from them having to take verbal action which was then telling me to do something that i was already doing. Unfortunately older cars judder when you get your clutch bite so unless your driving a brand new car you are probably likely to fail. Quite sad that some examiners are out for you to fail but i suppose it’s more money to them

Absolutely disgraceful. The examiner failed me because I prepared the car to move out of a junction. isn't that what you are supposed to do???????
