Norris Green Driving Test Centre is situated around the busy streets of Liverpool and the test will involve many difficult roads. High speed ‘A’ roads are often taken as are residential streets that are often used for test manoeuvres.

Residential streets are also used for testing your ability for dealing with oncoming vehicles in narrow lane situations. This often involves passing parked cars whilst dealing with oncoming vehicles. You will be expected to demonstrate a single manoeuvre from the possible four that the examiner has to choose from.

Around a 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure being requested. The examiner will allow around 10 minutes for independent driving which is mandatory on each car driving test conducted. 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 Norris Green Driving Test Centre. The driving test routes for sat nav and other navigation devices have been updated to the latest 2019 versions. See driving test routes for sat nav.


Booking a driving test is easily completed by either telephone or via the internet. Booking a test so that it is conducted outside of rush hour times may benefit test candidates, especially in busy areas.

I had my very first test with Paul. He is vile! I have now changed to southport as he put me off this test centre completely and I was terrified of getting him again. I’ve heard lots of bad things about him before I had my test and when he walked out the centre and walked towards me I felt sick. When he first approached me I tried to make conversation by saying how cold it was and he wiped the rain of the car Binet and said no you wouldn’t think it was cold would you, in a very intimidating way. He asked me a question about my licence and I thought he said what is your name so I told him and he said what I didn’t ask you that and I replied oh sorry I misheard you what did you say and he said that I wasn’t listening and that I need to listen. I came to unmarked cross roads and he slammed on when I weren’t even at the top of the road, he said that I needed to start looking both ways now but there was houses at the left and right of me so I don’t understand how I could’ve seen down the road when there was houses there? He also said to me that if he told me to follow a car and that car went down a no entry would I follow it and I replied no as you can’t go down a no entry, he then began to say that I would have to go down the no entry because he told me to!???? WTF he is completely vile and I hope the rumours are true that he has been sacked as I don’t understand why examiners are like this to people on their test, makes us feel so nervous and uncomfortable it is not okay!

Did my driving test yesterday unfortunately wasn’t the result I wanted but just wanted to sing the praises of driving examiner Matty. He was so lovely and made me feel very comfortable.
Thank you

I passed my test on Friday the examiner Andrew was lovely I’d had a test with him previously but failed he makes you feel at ease and chats to you but still remains professional both times he’s been excellent , you just feel like your on a lesson he’s a credit to your organisation maybe some the other examiners need to be trained by him as previous ones have not been nice and make you feel uncomfortable. Thanks so much Andrew for making me feel at ease as I was so nervous.

I had Paul for my driving test the reason he’s such a prick and fails loads of people. One my driving instructor said i hope you don’t get him. He’s so intimidating as well. Also drives a motorbike we all know what them people are like

It was my first go, I couldn’t of been any more prepared, only had a few minors of going over speed 1-2mph but was failed for the examiner, Kevin giving me lack of direction on a roundabout therefore it was the wrong lane, but if they don’t tell me the exit then I am not meant to know? Feedback at the end was so rude and sarcastic it was like he was purposely trying to put me down and knock my confidence when driving in future completely.
