THE DRIVING TEST IN Peterborough
Situated on the surrounding city of Peterborough, Peterborough Driving Test Centre will include many varied road types during the driving test. Included will be rural country driving and high speed dual carriageways such as the A1139.
Rural roads often represent a difficulty to test candidates due to the high National Limit speeds combined with the often harsh corners found on rural roads. The country road driving tutorial offers advice on how to best use an appropriate speed for these roads.
Busy town driving will include such traffic systems as roundabouts and mini roundabouts, crossroads and junctions. A high knowledge of all such roads and systems is essential. Incorporated on the test will be one test manoeuvre of the possible four (the choice is the examiners) and a 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure being requested. The examiner will request approximately 10 minutes of driving test time for the independent driving.
Test centre routes are designed by the examiners who conduct practical tests at their local test centre. Certain areas of the driving test routes in Peterborough can be challenging such as busy roundabouts and junctions. A further understanding of the various roads that are taken during the driving test from Peterborough Driving Test Centre can be obtained by viewing the driving test routes section.

I had my 2nd test today and passed! My examiner was new and was a former driving instructor and absolutely lovely, really put me at ease I suffer from anxiety badly. He chatted and me feel calm throughout the exam. I still cannot believe I passed!!
I had a very nice examiner , I believe he is new but I unfortunately cannot remember his name. However, he made me feel so much much more comfortable than when I had Matt on a previous test. My nerves weren’t great and he understood. It would be 5* but unfortunately Matt let down the team as he was rude and rushed the entire test as though he had somewhere to be. Matt’s demeanour is very intimidating to learners, especially as one of his first actions within the car was to push the passenger seat right back and place his feet on the dual controls almost as a signal that he wants to push them and be over with it and obviously he did. I chose not to make a deal of this despite him being evidently in the wrong (although I will never have footage as he decided to turn off the dash camera) but I carried on as there seemed no reason to waste my breath as he seemed so uninterested in the test that there was seemingly no point. Furthermore, I cannot fault examiner Pete who also carried out my previous test of which I failed due to my own faults, this helped me to compare how a test should be carried out and how a test shouldn’t be. Matt should seriously reassess wether or not the job is for him or maybe take a few lessons from Pete on how to carry out a test properly, as if he keeps on the way he is I expected many more negative reviews.
Never got Matt or Amanda so suppose I got off lightly. Told my instructor I feared the two from hell but she assured me they are all ok. Well the nice man Steph passed me and afterwards my instructor did say she agreed with my concerns about the stories but didnt want me to worry so kept it to herself. So glad I got this short notice test on Saturday and avoided the horrible instructors.
Had my second test with guess who ?? yup, it was the Woman from hell. But she remembered me saying sarcasticly how did you do on your last test? Well obviously it was a fail you idiot !!! However, this time I passed and after she told me I knew she didnt want to give me a pass certificate because she kept saying before you go i need to explain something about your driving bla bla. I was looking in the mirror and could see my instructor who sat in on my debrief holding his finger up to his mouth to tell me to be quiet. Afterwards my instructor told me she is being moved away for her behaviour so thankfully no more poor drivers having to go through what many have already gone through. If i find out where she is going i will write it on here so you can avoid at all costs. ps. I should have passed 1 st time.
Doesn’t deserve 1 star at all...
My examiners name will be disclosed further down in my review as I want you all to know what he is like before I expose his identity. He is extremely rude and was negatively sarcastic and lacked hygiene. He smelt of cigarettes, BO and had horrible breath. This examiner should be struck off frankly. For instance, when I did my emergency stop, he ran through the instructions but I wanted to go over them through with him so I did and then he scrutinised me for reinstating the instructions. The reason why I failed was a silly mistake and I’m not blaming him for it but his response to my failure was unbelievably despicable: “well I’m surprised you didn’t fall apart at that roundabout as it looked as if you were going to bawl your eyes out!” He’s a sadistic man who smiled when speaking those words to me. Furthermore, throughout my exam he would huff and puff with exaggeration and frustration, he also did not give a care in the world about my state of mind after what happened at the roundabout. Even though I knew I failed from that mistake it doesn’t give MATT the right to abuse his job to make learners feel unintelligent, a failure and most of all- belittled. DVLA- please consider my review and take into account of this examiners employment as he will not change his actions, he has a Nasty reputation among many driving instructors and I just hope that other learners like me, who have failed by someone like MATT gets the chance to try again with a far, empathetic, hygienic and kinder examiner. I pity all future learners who will have to be paired with such a horrific human being.
