THE DRIVING TEST IN Newcastle-under-Lyme

As the Newcastle-under-Lyme Driving Test Centre is situated around the outskirts of Stoke-on-Trent, the test will include a varied assortment of roads. Expected can be rural country driving and high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A500 dual carriageway.

Rural roads in particular can be hazardous and challenging due to higher speeds and sharp corners. See the country road driving tutorial for further information. In-town driving will include busy roads, roundabouts, crossroads and junctions.

Narrow residential streets are often used for test manoeuvre purposes and to test your ability for meeting oncoming vehicles within narrow lanes and streets. This often also involves passing parked cars. Expect a single manoeuvre with the emergency stop procedure having a 1-in-3 possibility of being requested. Test centre routes are designed by the examiners who conduct practical tests at their local test centre.

The routes are designed in such a way so to involve as many diverse roads and traffic systems as possible, often including very challenging parts. Gaining knowledge of the test routes provides valuable insight into the type of roads that will be taken during your test. Driving test routes may be available to view or a downloadable app for your mobile device in your area, including Newcastle-under-Lyme Driving Test Centre.


Many of the driving test centres within the UK operate tests from Monday though to Friday with the exception of certain busy centres that may operate on a Saturday. Weekend tests cost a little more to book. Details for how to book your test can be found below.

Terrible driving center - examiners basically fail you on any minor mistakes, so unfair for the ones who take test in this terrible driving center Newcastle under lyme

 by Mia

Examiners are so strict, and picky. They just tried to fail you for money. Avoid this driving center if you want to pass. I felt regret for taking this center because i had no choice

 by Venus

Examiners are so serious, not chatty, not reassuring to help the testers with nerves. Driving test is very nervous, stressful specifically for the new drivers, but they made it much more nervous when keeping silent and only focus on mistakes
