Driving in Stoke on the test will involve navigating many roundabouts, junctions and crossroads, all of which the examiner will require a high level of proficiency.

The examiner will be assessing your safety, knowledge and regard for other road users. The residential areas of Stoke On Trent are often taken for test manoeuvre purposes, where one of the possible four will be requested. Residential streets are also used for meeting vehicles (via streets with parked cars) emergency stop and high level of car control.

The driving test in Stoke will last around 30 to 40 minutes, where around 10 minutes of this test time will be reserved for the independent driving element. The test routes are compiled by the examiners who conduct the tests at each specific test centre.
