There are two practical driving test centres in Norwich. A test centres that conducts tests for cars and motorbikes, plus another that conducts tests for large lorries and buses (LGV), plus cars with trailers.
Norwich Driving Test Centre for cars is situated around the outskirts of Norwich which will involve many road types. Road types to be expected will be from high speed ‘A’ roads to also include dual carriageways such as the A47 and rural roads for country driving. In contrast to urban roads, rural roads are often quiet but are challenging due to high speeds and sharp corners. The country road driving tutorial helps novice drivers to assess their speed correctly.
Urban city roads often feature residential streets that are quiet and narrow. These are used to test your ability to giving way to oncoming vehicles safely, often whilst passing parked cars. They are also ideal for driving test manoeuvres.
Busy urban road systems will include various roundabout types, junctions and crossroads. A high level of knowledge and safety will need to be demonstrated to the examiner. The test is to include one manoeuvre from the four possible and a 1-in-3 chance of the emergency stop procedure being requested. The examiner will allow around 10 minutes of test time for independent driving.
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 Norwich Driving Test Centre.

The driving examiner I had was extreamly moody, grumpy and sharp which made my test worse than it should have been. When I asked for a repeated instruction he took a rather rude tone. This is not what people want on their test day when prople are already nervous, i feel your examiners should be trained to put the people at ease, not stress them out even more, this may just have been my examiner but I can’t speak for others.
Watch out for Rick. Fails you for the most ridiculous things. I failed on something that one of my fellow students passed on. But hey ho. Just wants his paycheck
Booked a test at Jupiter Road, My examiner Harry was extremely polite and cheerful. Throughout the test, he was supportive and made the instructions very clear. After I kerbed the car and therefore failed the exam, After the exam, he gave a very detailed analysis of all of the issues which are hugely beneficial to my learning.
Passed my test yesterday with Mr Turner Put me at ease straight away Brilliant examiner Thank you
Wish I could give it fewer stars, absolutely minging place with horrible examiners who just want your money. They will find a way to fail you even if you should have passed, so you're much MUCH better to travel and take it somewhere else. They definitely have a quota of how many people they need to fail so don't waste your money or your time
