A combination of rural country road driving (see country road driving tutorial for help with these road types), high speed dual carriageways such as the A580 and busy town driving is all likely to feature during the driving test from St. Helens Driving Test Centre.

Challenging in-town driving is to assess your ability for safety and knowledge at most road systems such as roundabouts, crossroads and junctions. The traffic systems will vary on the test routes from large multi-lane systems to small residential areas.

Throughout the test from St Helens, you will be assessed on a single test manoeuvre, emergency stop procedure (1-in-3 possibility) and around 10 minutes of the 30 – 40 minute test will be designated to independent driving.

Up to 15 minors are permitted or 3 of the same type minors. 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 St. Helens Driving Test Centre. St. Helens test routes for sat nav and other navigation devices have been updated for 2019 in the driving test routes for sat nav section.


You will need your theory test pass certificate (if applicable) and provisional driving licence for driving test bookings. Tests can be booked and scheduled for Monday to Friday throughout the day.

I can’t remember my examiners name but was a man of average build. Was very nice and calm and put me at ease. Passed with 3 minors all of which were fairly given!

Had my Motorcycle test yesterday. Paul Costello took me. I was full of nerves, when someone put that word Test I sort of go to pieces. Paul Costello helped me though by just talking things though professionaly yet reassuring. I would rate him as a fine man, and the Test centre are lucky to have genuine nice person.
Thank You. 👍 Steve Plant

Failed first time around on 1 major which was fair by examiner Paul. Passed second time with 5 minors,examiner this time was Rob, great guy made me feel comfortable throughout. Overall a comfortable place and not as daunting as first thought.

Absolute joke third time I've failed and had the same examiner twice Frank! I'm sure he's just failing people for the sake of it!! Picking up on every tiny detail! Absolutely furious there were no mistakes this time yet he failed me again! Makes you feel so uncomfortable! Really shouldn't be an examiner!
