Salford Driving Test Centre is essentially surrounded by dual carriageways. Ensure you have plenty of dual carriageway driving experience along with the busy multi-lane roundabouts that accompany them.

The driving test from Salford will take you from these busy areas into quieter residential areas where the driving examiner will ask for one of the possible four driving test manoeuvres. These areas are also often used for conducting the emergency stop in which there is a one in three tests conducted possibility of this being requested.

The approximate 40 minute driving test will involve independent driving of which around 10 minutes is set aside for. 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 Salford Driving Test Centre.


Tests are conducted from Monday to Friday at many of the UK practical driving test centres. Saturday tests may be an optional booking in busy areas, though this does incur a slightly higher booking fee.

Exactly the same as the pervious review same examinerror as soon as I seen the examiner I was set to fail. Her attitude towards me wasn't welcoming, body language wasnt positive, very abrupt and a little rude. Made me feel anxious from the start. when asking me about the saftey checks stood back from the car, arms folded and uninterested i tryed to brush this off explain I had learning difficulties I feel this was used as an excuse to fail me. Marked down on my monover (3 point) even though I did it exactly how I should of when I did notice my mistake corrected it Immidiate and still marked down on the littlest things. Some directions were clear others not so clear expected me to pull up on the left in one street on a speed bump didn't give me enough time to process the information, uppn pulling up told me to leave a cars length between without enough time to assess and counter for this.

The examiner wasn't helpful she failed from the start of the test. she didn't tell me to go back to the test centre she left me on road in the middle of the road. she give me 8 serious and she didn't let me go to test centre way before that. for any one taking the test there do not it there because they will fail you no matter what. The examiner failed me at start of the test before i even started the car because a big car coming in tight road and other car made a noise that is only reason why she failed me. the examiner A.smith is the name of examiner just to let you know
