High speed roads and multi-lane roundabouts such as those off the A562 often feature on the driving test from Widnes Driving Test Centre. The test can also test routes that involve taking you outside of Widnes and into villages and rural country roads.

Driving in Widnes itself will involve busy town roads featuring all junctions, crossroads and roundabout types, residential areas and pedestrian areas. Residential areas are often used for test manoeuvres, where one of the possible four will be requested. Bay parking is an option that the examiner may choose as the test centre in Widnes has parking bays.

The duration of the test from Widnes is from 30 to 40 minutes and will include around 10 minutes of independent driving. In terms of the emergency stop procedure, one in every four tests conducted features this procedure. 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 Widnes Driving Test Centre. Widnes test routes for sat nav and other navigation devices have been updated to the latest 2019 version. See driving test routes for sat nav.


Take care to choose the time that your test takes place carefully as those that choose a time that sees quieter roads may benefit. Details on how to book a driving test can be found below. Whilst booking, you’ll be asked for details from your theory test pass certificate and provisional driving licence. After this information has been provided, you’ll then be able to select a time and date for your test.
