Based centrally to Tunbridge Wells, the driving test from Tunbridge Wells Driving Test Centre will start on busy roads and may extend outside of Tunbridge Wells into rural areas, country roads and villages.

The driving test from Tunbridge Wells will include a single test manoeuvre with the emergency stop procedure having around a 1-in-3 possibility of being requested. In-town driving will include all major traffic systems and residential areas. The test duration is around 30 – 40 minutes, 10 minutes of which is 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 Tunbridge Driving Test Centre.


Booking a driving test is easily completed by either telephone or via the internet. When booking your test, you will be asked for details from your theory test pass certificate and provisional driving licence. You will be asked to choose from a selection of times and dates when you would like your test to take place.

I passed but I'm an awful driver.

 by Tinsu Thomas

I passed my test with no minor ..my examiner was Debbie and she was very kind and very relaxed,which made me feel so good..highly appreciated Debbie...Thank you

 by Danny

Debbie the examiner was unduly rude to my daughter. She belittled her, criticised her and made her feel miserable. She failed and will obviously not be taking her next test there. A little bit of common decency and kindness goes a long way. But it is a money-making machine....

 by Dave

Debbie is the most impolite person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was nasty, rude and totally off putting. I will be taking this up with the powers that be. She cannot be allowed to continue as a test examiner. Very unfortunate for her I am very well connected. Her days are numbered people!

Passed 3rd time, had Clive for my first and third (didn't recognise me on the third) and Debbie on the 2nd. An ok centre, though lots of people I know are choosing Sevenoaks instead now
