The practical driving test from Trowbridge Driving Test Centre initiates from a residential area where although quiet may present hazards from passing parked cars and small blind and closed junctions. Residential areas are also ideal for the driving examiner to request most driving test manoeuvres.

The Community hall offers parking bays where the bay parking manoeuvre may be requested. Outside of the residential areas features busy roads such as the A361 and large roundabouts. Country roads may also feature from the Trowbridge driving test.

Along with the various road types, a single manoeuvre (occasionally two) will be required, with a 1-in-3 chance of the examiner requesting the emergency stop. 10 minutes of independent driving is compulsory. 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 Trowbridge Driving Test Centre.


Many of the UK driving test centre operate from Monday to Friday, with the exception of those in busy areas that may offer Saturday tests. Details on how to book a driving test can be found below. Make sure you have your theory test pass certificate and provisional driving licence ready as you will be required to pass on details found off of them.

Top Tips

When looking in mirrors move your head from side to side, otherwise she will say you are not looking. You may even wish to say " MIRROR", Also drive at a snails pace if a pedestrian is in the vicinity of a Zebra crossing.

I have just had a call from my daughter in tears to say that ten minutes into the lesson - and after she had stalled on a roundabout - the instructor told her to pull into a car park - shouted at her and walked out of the car telling her he had other things to do and had another test waiting, She received no paperwork. Having travelled down from university to take the test today - this is an appalling way to treat anyone.

My examiner was lovely, made me feel very calm. The actually place it's at is a little sketcy, went on the coldest day of the year and the heating was broken. But as a place to do your test they're fair and experienced.
