Watnall Driving Test Centre provides practical tests for cars and large vehicles (LGV). Located close to busy urban roads and rural roads, expect country road driving and busy town based driving during the practical test.

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. Tests will often also include the A610 dual carriageway from the Watnall Test Centre.

Town based routes will see you taken through many traffic systems from large roundabouts, to mini roundabouts, crossroads and various junction types. Each test includes a single test manoeuvre, the choice being the examiners, and independent driving which takes approximately 10 minutes. From every four tests conducted, the emergency stop procedure is required once.

Gaining knowledge of the test centre routes can be of significant benefit. 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. 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 Watnall Driving Test Centre.


Whether booking a driving test for car or large vehicles (LGV), tests can be booked either by telephone or online. If booking a practical test for cars, you will be required to fill out some details from your theory test pass certificate and provisional driving licence.

Wish to leave more stars but I just can't. Egzaminators attitude is not professional and they are deprived of human feelings. I can't.

the examiners' approach is shocking and unacceptable for me. The exam is always a stressful moment and not everyone deals well with it. It is understandable that you have to follow the procedures but some errors could be resolved in favor of the student. very disappointed
