Monmouth Driving Test Centre is situated around rural roads where bends may be difficult to navigate due to oncoming vehicles. The often higher speeds of rural roads combined with sharp corners can make country roads a challenge to novice drivers. The country road driving tutorial helps novice drivers in understanding appropriate speeds.

Small village roads may have narrow and difficult areas which is a common area to fail driving test. Fast ‘A’ roads are also present such as the A40 dual carriageway and are likely on the driving test.

The examiner will require one manoeuvre and the emergency stop having around a 1-in-3 possibility of being requested. Test routes are available for many of the UK practical driving test centres and may include Monmouth 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. Test routes can be viewed and planned on this website or downloaded as an app for use on mobile devices or a sat nav.


Practical tests are conducted throughout the day from Monday to Friday at most test centres. Tests are easily booked by either telephone or via the internet.

Book a driving test by phone
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 Monmouth 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.

Book your driving test online
The most popular method for booking a practical test is via the internet. Upon making a booking, the available times and dates will be displayed for your chosen test centre. To make a test booking at Monmouth Driving Test Centre, see the book a driving test section.

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.


Throughout the UK practical driving test centres, pass rates vary. Certain centres, often in very busy areas may have a slightly lower pass rate and in this situation, some test candidates decide to take their test at an alternative test centre. 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 Monmouth 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).

How is this Examiner Jane ever allowed to carry on in her profession. yesterday my Granddaughter took her test. Not only was she rude, demoralising but so unprofessional. My Granddaughter had had a head cold the previous week, and still had a bit of a sniff. Yes she took a Covid test to ensure that she was fine. Jane bore the same question several times did my Granddaughter have Covid. (did she really believe that she would have gone if she had?). Jane, then proceeded to huff and puff, took out wipes and cleaned herself and the seat belt etc. My Granddaughter was then too scared to sniff and was put at ill ease, Then the satnav decided to pack up and Jane was forced to open her mouth and give verbal instruction. at a roundabout my Granddaughter was instructed to to take a turning off which she proceeded with the maneouver only to have the steering wheel yanked round to get the car to proceed down another road. when asked by my Granddaughter why she replied because she was too close to another vehicle of which my Granddaughter absolutely denies but has to accept that is Jane decision. Jane then demanded that she was to return to the testing centre, told her she had failed, got out, didnt acknowledge her and walked off in haste.
It isnt the fact that she failed but Jane is obviously not suitable for the job in hand. has a wrong approach totally totally rude, demoralising to the extent I am sure she just likes her "power". I have reported her unacceptable manner. Words cannot express how I feel about this Examiner, I know there is a shortage in Monmouth, but come on, this woman is a liability.
Why dont they see all the reviews and do something about her. God help anyone who has the misfortune of crossing her path.

Jane clearly does not like her job! She is rude,short tempered and extremely unprofessional.How is she still allowed to be a examiner? Reading these reviews it sounds like I'm not alone in my awful experiences with her.

byOlivia on

Worst experience of my life !!!!! Jane is so rude , she made me feel awful her attitude towards people is disgusting !!!!! She huffs & tufts at everything . She failed me saying I didn’t stop at a junction even though I did !!! I can’t believe she grill has her job after reading all these comments . If u are unlucky enough to have Jane don’t bother going out as you will fail !!!! GET RID OF JANE

Awful experience with Jane. I complained about her a year ago and shocked she’s been allowed to continue with taking people on driving tests. She abuses her position of ‘power’, when complained we received a weak, corporate response and clearly they have not dealt with the issue. Absolutely terrible experience, would never recommend this driving centre.

byAndrew on

Awful experience with Jane. She very clearly hates her job and resents testing anyone. She is incredibly rude and bad tempered and is severely lacking in any customer service. I am shocked she has not been disciplined or removed from her position already. I have lodged a complaint with the DVSA regarding her poor behaviour. I really hope you don't get her as your examiner on the day.
