Southall Driving Test Centre is situated around many road types that will be included on the driving test. Busy urban roads will test your ability on road systems such as roundabouts, junctions and crossroads. Residential roads being relatively quiet are often used for test manoeuvres.

The examiner will request one such manoeuvre from the possible four. The road types are also used to demonstrate your ability at meeting oncoming traffic on narrow lane streets – see passing parked cars for advice. High speed ‘A’ roads such as the A40 dual carriageway is likely as they are part of the test routes.

Rural country roads from Southall Test Centre are also featured on many of the tests conducted – see country road driving for advice on these particular road types. Around 10 minutes of independent driving can be expected along with the emergency stop procedure having a 1-in-3 chance of being requested. 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 Southall Driving Test Centre.


Tests can be booked by telephone or online to take place throughout the day Monday to Friday. Some test centres may also offer Saturday tests at a slightly higher booking fee.

I had my driving test with Kam and have to say I am at a loss to understand the adverse comments some people have made regarding this lady, I have to say, turning up in a highly nervous state myself, this lady was fabulous, she instantly calmed me down and she is a highly professional and competent, very nice to me throughout the experience . I would highly recommend anyone booking a test at this centre ask for Kam she's fab. I think other people are stroppy because they were obviously not up to the test passing stage!

This test centre is not even worth one star.It is the most Worst test centre in all of London.The Examiners make you feel nervous and don't know how to speak to People .I failed twice in this test centre and i will never book a test again the Examiners make you feel uncomfortable and nervous, as they don't try to initiate conversation and they make you feel like everything that another driver does is your fault.I failed due to a car turning into a road and slowing down for himself in order to turn into the road -Examiner made it out like he braked for me. Never again.Due to Covid their business got messed up so now there failing mostly everyone just to boost their Business. Avoid this test centre at all costs.It is the Worst ones in London and i hope it shuts down.Dickheads

I would rate it minus 5 if I could. Whatever you do, do not have your test here waste of time and money. I feel like they already know they’re gonna fail you before your test and don’t even take you past small roads next to it. My test only lasted 15 minutes. Not the best time to take a test during covid since the test will terminate as soon as they want to fail you. They won’t let you do the whole test to see on where you could improve also. Choose a different test centre if you’re in the area. Uxbridge has the 4th highest pass rate in london
