Wakefield Driving Test Centre is situated around a variety of roads from busy high speed dual carriageways such as the A638 to rural roads and country village roads all that may feature during the driving test from Wakefield Driving Test Centre.

Driving in Wakefield itself will assess your ability at most major traffic systems. A high proficiency at roundabouts of all types, crossroads and junctions is essential. Test manoeuvres can often be taken on residential areas that are quieter but all provide a challenge due to oncoming vehicles and parked cars – see the passing parked cars tutorial.

The test has around a 1-in-3 chance of including the emergency stop. One manoeuvre will be requested and the driving test from Wakefield will feature 10 minutes of 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 Wakefield Silkwood Driving Test Centre.


Particularly in busy areas such as Wakefield, test candidates often benefit from booking their test so that it takes place during the quieter periods of the day. You’ll be required to submit information from your theory test pass certificate and provisional driving licence, and you will then be able to choose from a selection of test booking slots available.

My instructor (karl/Carl) put me at ease answering all questions I had, I had him on a pass and fail on both occasions he was amazing. Feedback from him is also great on what to improve on after fail and what you did well. Also very supportive and encouraging

They cancelled my driving test a week before it was suppose to be and postponed it to 2 months later due to "examiner no longer available". Extremely frustrated and very unsatisfied with their communication and effort to find a better alternative date or alternative examiner.

Awfully guy out there ,I would highly not recommend this area ,in first place he tried to put me down because was bump in my back quarter panel ,a guy told him it's okay ,doesn't affect the way of driving after that he checked the tyres and he found a tyre underflated a bit was like that since 3 months as I bought the car like that ,the tyre had a small scratch not slash as he said ,and he said to go to put a new tyre ,I've changed the tyre in 15 minutes and I came back he was having his coffee and eating like a f**king pig, and he said he can't take me for my test ,and I paid 50 pound for a new tyre when in my town was 25 pound ripping bastards so all toghter I wasted 110 pound for his was to drink his coffee, hope one day will be squashed by a truck ,i dont wish him to die ,just to remain paralized ,to suffer all his life cause people like him make this world a worse place to live .
