THE DRIVING TEST IN South Shields
South Shields Driving Test Centre is situated around urban town roads where the examiner will be testing your ability at various traffic systems. Expect many roundabout types, junctions and crossroads to feature.
Quieter residential roads are often used for test manoeuvres and to test your ability at meeting approaching vehicles on narrow streets (see passing parked cars for help on this). Rural roads and high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A184, A19 and A194 often feature from South Shields Driving Test Centre and also include dual carriageways.
The test will include a single manoeuvre and a 1-in-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure being requested. Around 10 minutes of test time will be reserved for the independent driving.
The test routes are compiled by the examiners who conduct the tests at each specific test centre. Test routes are compiled to utilise as many varied road types and traffic systems as possible so to ensure the test candidate is proficient in all aspects of driving. Test routes often include difficult parts and by gaining knowledge of the routes offers valuable insight into what to expect on the test. Driving test routes may be available to view or a downloadable app for your mobile device in your area, including South Shields Driving Test Centre.
