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.


Driving tests are booked by either telephone or over the internet where test availability times and dates are displayed. Most busy test centres operate Monday to Friday and at certain times of the year on Saturdays.

Just failed my second test. Have had two test here and both I have had 1 serious fault with 0 & 1 minor faults.

This time, I got a serious for “going over a mini roundabout”. I was going straight on and my two right side wheels went over the white paint in the middle, he classes this as a serious. Baring in mind in my first test, I did the exact same roundabout the exact same way, and the woman didn’t give me a fault for it.

Just shows that it’s down to luck that the examiner has good perception skills.

Wow I cldnt blieve my eyes I had a man with a long beird looked very religious, I am
A modern Muslim and he looked at me weirdly up and down I had a top and leggings on, he failed me within 30 seconds of pulling onto the road saying I was to close, took me back to test centre, didn’t even see the rest of my driving, my instructor said I was ready to pass well obviously not according to this examiner
Very bad experience

byShannon on

firstly I don't believe I was and that even if I was positioned slightly to the right it should have been a minor, I didn't obstruct anyone, didn't cause any danger and did excellent observations. He was then very rude to me, raised his voice telling me to just park in a bay! The whole experience was unfair, he didn't even give me chance to show how I can drive (which is test standard!!) don't do your driving test here! Unfair judgment and rude examinor

Failed me for allegedly wrong positioning to turn right on a one way street with no signs, and no other cars behind me.

I took my 4th and 5th (finally passed on my 5th!) tests here! I had Aaron on my 4th and Mohammed on my 5th test and I couldn’t fault either of them! They made my last two tests very calm and enjoyable! Much more so than when I had tests at the Pavillion or kingstanding! Sutton is also quite a nice area to drive in and is easier than areas such as kingstanding, although the areas can cross over!
