Leicester Gipsy Lane Taxi Test Routes

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) no longer publish taxi driving test routes for public viewing.

Detailed below are the taxi test routes for Gipsy Lane Driving Test Centre, which is no longer in operation. For test centres that are in operation within this area, see South Wigston Driving Test Centre. The taxi test routes are developed by examiners for those who wish to take the hackney carriage (black cab) or private hire taxi test.

The taxi test routes may have altered as this is down to the discretion of the examiner, or they may remain similar or possibly identical. Routes can also change on a daily basis due to road or traffic conditions. Taxi test routes are for Gipsy Lane, routes 1 to 5.

Use the test routes below to form a knowledge base for the various types of roads and traffic systems that you will encounter during the DVSA taxi test. Only use the routes as guidance for basing a representation of the types of roads and traffic systems to expect.


Taxi test routes for Sat Nav, Google Maps, Google Earth, iPhone, Android & CoPilot Live may be available. Browse to see if the Leicester Gipsy Lane taxi test routes are available for your device in the Driving Test Routes for Sat Nav section.
