Driving in Stafford itself will involve all major traffic systems such as roundabouts, mini and larger multi-lane, crossroads and various junctions.
Residential streets often pose a challenge for learners due to parked cars and meeting oncoming vehicles (see passing parked cars). These areas can often be used for test manoeuvres where one of the possible four will be requested during the test from Stafford.
The test is likely to involve the emergency stop procedure and from the 30 to 40 minute driving test duration, around 10 minutes for independent driving. Certain driving test centres offer weekend driving tests on Saturdays. Taking a driving test on a Saturdays can be beneficial as there is often less traffic.

it seems this test centre has a bad reputation against its test instructors. I have my test coming up soon at this centre and the negative reviews are getting me worried. If you have a issue with or about your test you can go to the dvla website and complain about the individual test instructor and the test centre itself, as leaving reviews here will not get anything done about it.
Here is the link to make a formal complaint against this centre and instructors.
Failed my test twice and of course accepted the result however both times the examiner was extremely rude he even brought me to tears
Disgrace of an examiner I had, I'll name and shame him, Chris davies, completely rude and disrespectful, didn't allow me to talk after the test apparently I was arguing when I was stating facts about the test, also lying about certain points in the test just to make me fail, I hope this place loses customers and shuts down until they learn respect
WORST EVER! I have taken my test several times (4 to be exact) at this test centre to be lumbered three time with a terrible examiner. Admittedly, the first and second time nerves took over however, after being give anxiety medication to battle them and taking several lesson (over 50 hrs) I have become a very competent and aware driver. My third and fourth test has been with an instructor who can barley talk due to a medical issue making him difficult to understand. Having had him three time I can say he is extremely rude and does not acknowledge questions, he does not like being asked to repeat and constantly makes things up to ensure you fail. I was failed twice before I had even left the test centre by him and once when I hadn't even turned in the engine. When asked why I was ignored in each occasion and later told I failed for something which would be considered a minor.
My instructor has also questioned his judgment on many occasions only to be met with the reply I am the examiner not you and this is my final decision. I have even failed multiple times by this guy for minor issues which if it was a guy who would probably let slide. In my eyes he is misogynistic and rude refusing to engage in comforting conversation and resulting in being met with cold silence when I have tried to make conversation. I will not be taking my test and this sh*thole again and pray for anyone who is put with this instructor. After changing test centre I was passed automatically and told i was a great driver and they were shocked I failed so many times! Good riddance. Also on another occasion with the same guy I was driving well within the speed limit it was a 60 i was doing 40 only to be told that he personally felt I took the corners too fast. When I retorted as well as my instructor that I was within limit he said it is a limit not a target and the speed you were doing I felt unsafe and failed me again. Absolutely ridiculous.
I have failed my tests twice but to be honest I can not fault the examiners in Stafford test centre, both my examiners were nice and tried their best to keep me calm but unfortunately I failed.
