Telford Driving Test Centre is located close to high speed roundabouts and challenging dual carriageway systems such as the A442. These road types are highly likely during the driving test from Telford. Telford Driving Test Centre is situated on the edge of Telford making rural country roads a possibility for the test.

Other than the complex roundabouts, the test will include junctions and crossroads of all types, mini roundabouts and driving through often narrow lanes in residential areas. Often these areas can be used for test manoeuvre purposes, meeting and passing oncoming vehicles, passing distances and the emergency stop.

The driving test from Telford will last around 30 to 40 minutes, around 10 minutes will be designated to the independent driving. Knowing each and every test route isn’t essential, though gaining an understanding of the particularly difficult areas of the test routes often proves beneficial.

Examiners who conduct the tests develop the test routes for their test centres with the intention of taking the test candidate through as many varied road types and traffic systems as possible, within the time given. This is to ensure test candidates can deal with all situations and often involves difficult areas. Driving test routes may be available to view or a downloadable app for your mobile device in your area, including Telford Driving Test Centre.

Had my test, I failed for a pathetic reason. I had a very good drive and was never a danger to anyone else on the road.
Examiners are very particular with what they want, and very rude.

Paul is an absolute star!!! He was the examiner on my daughters test today - he made her feel at ease and was friendly, polite and very reasonable. After she passed he gave her good sound advice on driving safely going forward. His attitude towards her was outstanding…. He is a true gent and an asset to the Telford Team. He was the only examiner to make her feel less anxious and confident. Thanks Paul…. You are a legend 😁

Managed to pass after a few attempts, examiner was an absolutely miserable git each time. Don't give them anything to punish you for, focus on the fact that you're ready and you can drive, and do your best to ignore the bad vibes the examiners give off!
