Pwllheli Driving Test Centre is situated around rural roads where bends may be difficult to navigate due to oncoming vehicles. Rural roads represent some of the most hazardous road types within the UK and are often a challenge to learner and novice drivers due to their high speeds and sharp corners. The country road driving tutorial offers advice on how best to understand a safe speed for these road types.

Small village roads may have narrow and difficult areas which is a common area to fail driving test. these residential roads are often used for testing your ability at meeting oncoming vehicles, often whilst passing parked cars, and manoeuvres.

High speed ‘A’ roads are also present such as the A499 and A497 both of which maybe likely during the driving test. The driving test from Pwllheli Driving Test Centre will last around 30 – 40 minutes, will include a single test manoeuvre, independent driving and a 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure. Practical tests now involve around 10 minutes of 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 Pwllheli Driving Test Centre.


Though most UK driving test centres conduct tests throughout the week from Monday to Friday, those in rural areas may offer driving tests on a part-time basis. The availability of tests is displayed whilst booking.

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.
