Tests often include high speed ‘A’ road such as the A5027 dual carriageway is likely and your driving test may take you into Birkenhead. As the driving test centre of Upton is located close to the outskirts, country and rural villages may also feature. See country road driving for a tutorial on these road types.

Expect in the test one of the possible four test manoeuvres along with the emergency stop procedure having around a 1-in-3 possibility of being requested.

Such manoeuvres are often requested in residential areas and streets. These areas are also to test your ability for meeting oncoming vehicles in and around parked cars and clearance distances.

A good understanding and safety of all traffic systems such as junctions, roundabouts and crossroads is essential for the challenging test routes of Upton Driving Test Centre. 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 Upton Driving Test Centre.

I would love to have a way that I can contest the exam!

I think we should be allowed to have an observer during our test, or at least a camera so we can contest our exam!
Today, I failed for no reason at all, and after I was already failed the examiner added another major fault. Completely ridiculous. I would like to know where to file a proper complaint for this examiner! This female examiner should not work here anymore. I hope we can refuse our examiners next time.

Not the best test centre. Done my test twice here and they literally give you a major for absolutely anything. Even if it is not serious or could cause harm. The instructor I had for both the same failed tests makes a big deal out of absolutely nothing.
