Examiners at their designated test centres develop test routes so that they involve may varied road types as possible. Maybush Driving Test Centre features such routes. Situated near to rural areas, the routes often take you out of urban areas onto rural based roads. The country road driving tutorial offers learner drivers a guide on how to best gain an understanding of speed when meeting sharp corners.

Dual carriageways often also feature often by use of the A33. Examiners will take you in-town to test your ability for traffic systems. Roundabouts of all types, crossroads and many junction types will be taken.

Residential areas typically are used for dealing with oncoming vehicles whist passing parked cars and to conduct one of the test manoeuvres. The choice of manoeuvres is for the examiner to decide.

Every other test conducted, the examiner will require the emergency stop procedure (around one in every four tests taken). Expect around 10 minutes or so of independent driving. Test candidates tend to benefit significantly by gaining knowledge of the test routes. Maybush test routes may be available in the driving test routes section to either browse or download as an app.

Yesterday, I had my driving test. As a first timer I was really really nervous. Overall, the driving instructor was kind throughout the whole driving test. But, a couple of things happened that made me feel frustrated. The first one was how he evaluated my serious fault. we were on a rural road (I can not remember the name of the road) and I turned right just after passing the National speed limit. I was accelerating when I saw a little sign hanging on the three saying "Max speed 20. Skid risk" When I saw it, I pushed the breaks and held my speed up to 20 mph. The instructor advised me to speed up when I was driving up hill. (I used my own car, 2004 Nissan Almera, and although is a reliable car it struggles to speed up on up hill roads). When he said this to me, I was trying to speed up, but I only got up to 40 mph and by that point, it was almost time to turn right. He directed me to the driving test centre again and we did not even complete the reverse manoeuvre. He just said to me you did not pass because your speed was unsafe for other drivers. I understand the rules and why he said that, however when I was driving slow there where no cars behind me. In the end, he rushed to get out of the car, I asked him whether I had any other serious faults and he said no. He did not mention me how many driving (minor) faults I got and when I wanted to ask he was already by the driving test main door.
I feel so frustrated because I need the licence for my job. I have already applied for another emergency driving test however I do not know how long it will take.
