During the driving test from Stevenage Driving Test Centre, many challenging and varied roads will be taken. Often driving outside of Stevenage itself will result in rural country roads (see the country road driving tutorial for further advice), villages and perhaps high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A602 dual carriageway.

In Stevenage, the examiner will expect a high standard of driving, regard for others and safety at most major traffic systems. Expect all roundabout types, junctions and crossroads.

The driving test from Stevenage Driving Test Centre often takes you on quieter residential areas, often used for test manoeuvres of which one of the possible four will be requested. The areas are also to test your ability for meeting vehicles whilst navigating parked vehicles and passing distances (see passing parked cars). 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 Stevenage Driving Test Centre.


Tests can be booked so they they’re scheduled at any time of the day from Monday to Friday. Certain test centres during busy times of the year may offer Saturday bookings. Saturday bookings cost slightly more to book.

I have waited 3 years to book a test. There are still none available.
This is the shittest service on the planet. The apes that run this building should get their heads out of their ass holes and do their jobs. This is a fucking disgrace. Cant even do my test its been fucking years.

Terrible experience today at Stevenage test centre I had the lady with the east European accent with black hair.She made me feel very nervous and failed me for the stop on the right reverse manoeuvre. She claimed I caused a problem for a car approaching from behind me which I had spotted and was no way impeeding the cars progress in any way. I looked behind saw the car through the rear window and rear and side mirror.
She was really bossy and did not have a pleasant demeanor which was making me more nervous however I had a really good safe drive and was really shocked to discover I had failed. She also gave me 17minor faults on top of the serious fault for observation in her opinion. She is far too stringent with her assesment I was driving in full compliance with the highway code. I feel completely crushed by this as I was so ready for this test. I will be appealing this test result and hopefully get a retest soon but will be praying I don't get her again as she is miserable and biased but messing with people lives as I had this test in the bag. Disgusting.

Took my second driving test today and the woman was nothing but horrible and very rude and ignorant, talked down to me like I was no one, made me feel really uncomfortable waving her hands about whilst I was driving made it very unclear if where I needed to go and made me get distracted and claimed that I failed because I pulled out in front of a motorcyclist even though he was no where near me he was 100m away from when I pulled out and she put it down as a serious fault and without even leaving the centre already failed me which I think is very unfair I am very disappointed about this because I’ve had to wait nearly a year for my test and for it to be ruined and practically sabotaged before I even started, the woman her name is Julia I was disgusted on how she treated me and spoke to me she was very moody and grumpy since I first got there and didn’t even say hello just shouted at me saying that I shouldn’t park outside here because I was meant to wait in the car park opposite which I thought was unfair as well because I had to pay with my own money to drive in there, I very highly recommend not to use this teat centre as it is really unfair, I hope that Julia receives all this feedback and I would like a written formal apology of the way she spoke to me as I would like to take this further if she doesn’t because it wasn’t fair and she doesn’t know the laws,

I had a very positive experience at this test centre. My examiner was very friendly and personable, which put me at easy. He had a very calm and relaxed manner, just what I needed to calm my extreme test anxiety. I think it was due to his positive attitude that i managed to stay calm in several tricky situations throughout the test and resolve any issues safely. I passed first time and received some useful feedback at the end of the test.
