THE DRIVING TEST IN Sutton Coldfield
The driving test is designed to incorporate as many varied roads as possible. Complex traffic systems are common in busy city areas. Large multi-lane roundabouts leading to dual carriageway systems, busy junctions and crossroads are to be expected.
Often the test routes can take you out of city areas into country lanes and villages. See the country road driving tutorial for advice on these road types. Residential areas or out of town villages are used for test manoeuvres. One of the four manoeuvres will be requested. Out of every three tests conducted, one of these includes the emergency stop.
The 30 to 40 minutes test includes around 10 minutes of independent driving. Further information can be found in the What to expect on the driving test section. 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 Sutton Coldfield Driving Test Centre.

I had my test with Davina. I have never felt so uncomfortable in my life. From the moment she “greeted” me in the waiting room I felt uncomfortable. She didn’t seem to notice that I got my eye sight check wrong (I got a letter wrong) and she didn’t ask me my show me question. She failed me for a legitimate reason but I honestly believe I would’ve passed if I wasn’t so nervous. I had a test before this one and although I failed I felt good throughout the test - the examiner made me feel relaxed and at ease whereas with Davina I felt more nervous as time went on. The only time she spoke to me was to insult me and when she wasn’t flicking her hair and checking her nails she was sighing. I’ve never felt so stupid. If I have her again I’d rather just skip the test and pay for another. There’s so many reviews saying the same and I think it’s disgusting nothing has been done about it. It’s very unfair.
Passed second time and I had Aaron as my examiner. He was laid back and kept me calm throughout the whole test. Gave really good feedback after my test as well. Only con about this test centre is that it has no toilets.
Go somewhere else, not waste money in this test centre. They never let you pass!
I failed my test with Davian and I understand the reason why .....but this lady is absolutely cold no human feeling you can't feel comfortable because even you try she will cut off make sure you feel like nothing. Driving instructor sud make you feel welcome like really care not just hello my name is Davian no smiles nothing .
Had my test today found the examiner Julie very rude and arrogant she made no effort to try and make me feel at ease and didn't even explain why I failed just handed the paper and walked off totally put me off going for my next test
