Situated around various road types, the driving test from Sevenoaks Driving Test Centre is likely to include rural country driving (see the country road driving tutorial for advice on these road types), high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A21 dual carriageway and busy town driving.

During town driving, the examiner will assess your ability at most road traffic systems to include junctions, roundabouts and crossroads. Residential roads often being narrow with parked vehicles are ideal for testing your ability to meet oncoming vehicles that may be necessary to give-way.

This often involves giving way whilst passing parked cars. Expected on the test from Sevenoaks Driving Test Centre will be one test manoeuvre, a 1-in-3 chance of the emergency stop and 10 minutes of independent driving.

The test 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 Sevenoaks Driving Test Centre.


Driving tests can be booked to take place at any time of the day throughout the week. Optionally, some test centres offer Saturday booking at a slightly higher booking fee. Test availability times and dates are made clear when booking.

My daughter had her test today and the examiner, made conversation the whole way around the test, asking her about her school life and then talking about football and various start wars movies. He repeatedly spoke over the sat nav so she could here instructions and had to look at the screen. I thought the examiner had to remain quiet unless giving instructions. Does any one know how I can make a official complaint.

Good test centre I didn’t stop at a stop sign (assumed it was a give way idky stupid mistake) this should of been a fail but he let me off as the rest of the test was good. He is a nice enough person and he’s not intimidating.

If I could give no stars at all, I would! Had a dreadful examiner here who didn’t follow the usual protocol and 10 minutes into the test said I had failed but I had to carry on driving for another 40 minutes. Safe to say I went to pieces after his comment! To make matters worse, he continuously reminded me I had failed, brought up all my mistakes after gasping and groaning how dangerous I was being...and then had the audacity to ask if I was nervous! Just made a formal complaint with the DVSA.

I have just completed and passed my ADI Part 2 Driving Ability Assessment with Sevenoaks DTC examiner Nigel. He was incredibly professional, personable and approachable. A very positive experience.

I must give a 5* rating to Mick, he was so lovely, talked to me and calmed my nerves so I could drive like I usually do (I was such a nervous wreck on the day!). I passed.... this was my second attempt! I wish I could say the same for Linda, no people skills and didn't put me at ease, this made the whole first test harder than it needed to be. I failed and I admit I made a stupid mistake..... whether it was really classed a serious, who knows. I know the examiners have a job to do and access us to be safe and competent but this is so nerve racking for most people. I wish some of the examiners could remember that we don't have the years of experience that they have, and could put themselves in our shoes for those 40 mins! Good luck for anyone sitting their test soon 🙂
