Reigate Driving Test Centre is situated around rural roads and busy town roads. Rural country driving can be challenging to learner drivers due high speed and difficult corners. Our country road driving tutorial offers advice on how best to use these road types.

Town driving will be used to assess your ability for various traffic systems including roundabouts of all types, junctions and crossroads. One of the four possible test manoeuvres are often taken on residential streets.

These areas are often narrow with parked cars (see passing parked cars) and so are used to test your ability for meeting oncoming vehicles and giving way. A 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure being requested along with 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 Reigate Driving Test Centre.


From most driving test centres, tests can be booked and arranged to be taken Monday to Friday throughout the day. Test candidates do usually gain better results by booking their test so that it is taken over the quieter periods of the day, avoiding rush hour traffic.

Had a stocky late 60-something humourless woman as examiner. The A25 is very windy and speed limit regularly fluctuates between 40 and 30. You are expected to not hold traffic up. One time going round a bend speed limit abruptly dropped to 30. Hard to see sign among the trees, so had to brake hard resulting in minor fault. Worst bit is Mid Street, South Nutfield. Roadworks, one lane close, skip blocking the view, bend in the road, parked cars blocking one lane. Took it slow, but instructor said TOO SLOW - minor fault. Then you come to a T-junction into Kings Cross Lane and, like quite a few Surrey lanes, the road is potholed and deteriorating. I slowed to preserve the suspension as it was only a small car and was given a second speed fault, which then became SERIOUS FAULT - FAIL. I don't know what the heck the examiners expect, but it was a demoralising experience. The instructor just said I failed for holding up traffic and then just walked off. My advice is to avoid this test centre.

Went for test at this center after three attempts at West Wickham where two times I just not been allowed to take test in my car, very rude examiners. So even Redhill test routes seem to be a bit complicated than Wickham I felt much confident during the test and passed first attempt and no complaints about using own car. Thanks Lianne

What kind of bloody place is this ,my daughter had her test here this morning and didn't even get out of the gate before she was failed ,someone on exit flashed my daughter to let her go which she started to when suddenly her examiner ADI who was a bloody stand in and probably didn't want to be there slammed the brake on because HE wasn't looking in that direction at the time and thought my daughter was just pulling out ,luckily my daughters instructor was in the car too and saw what happened and contested this with the examiner and basically was told tough ,and she still did the test that she would have passed if this prick was doing his job correctly. how the bloody hell are these new drivers going to stand a chance if they are given tw*ts like this who wasn't looking but can then overrule two pairs of eyes that were looking .its bloody disgusting that's £60 of her hard earned money down the drain for something he didn't see,he should be sacked ,And my daughter should should be given another retest asap for being unfairly failed by this blind tw*t.
