To pass the driving test at Thornbury Driving Test Centre, a high knowledge of all roundabout types, junction and crossroad types in and around the test centre is vital.

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 Thornbury Driving Test Centre.


Whilst making a driving test booking, you will be asked for some details from your theory test pass certificate and your provisional driving licence. During the booking process, the available times and dates that are free for making a test booking will be shown.

I passed my test today on Thornbury bradford . My examiner Sir Paul was a very humble and kind man. He made me calm and relaxed when my nerves were kicking me and i was sweating . He was very kind hearted and polite as well. I really liked his soft nature. He is the best examiner in thornbury test route. Sir Paul is not an examiner only he is a teacher as well. His kind hearted nature made me his fan :).
May Allah bless him more and more.
Sir Paul is the best examiner. I love him.
He just helped me to control my nervousness and being panic.
I really appreciate him 🙂
Thanks a lot sir paul being my instructor 🙂

I have failed twice now at this test centre, had the same person both times. how can i have a fair outcome if i have the same examiner??? if you are taking your own car with you for a test--- forget it --you will never pass!!! examiner was not happy that he had no brake pedals at his side and failed me for other drivers mistake. Do l need to come with driving instructors car to pass at your place???!!!Stop wasting everyone's time and money!!!No professional examiners at this place.DO NOT GO THERE! This place is failing young drivers for minors and will kill your spirit to drive!!! l would give 0 rating!

Very professional and polite examiner named Rob made me feel at ease throughout the exam and gave directions clearly and ahead of time and repeated them when I asked

 by Tazmina

My examiner was very polite right from the start, I failed but it was explained why and I totally agree with the result. I find these comments below unreasonable, maybe these people should take on board and learn from the mistake.
