Your driving test

We recommend getting to your driving test slightly early, in Norris Green there is lots of parking available on the roads outside the test center. If you are taking your test with your driving instructor they will know the usual procedure.

If you are taking your driving test without an instructor (using a car with a supervising driver) then please do not practice in the test center as you may affect people sitting their tests. Arrive at the test center a few minutes before your allocated time and park in a parking bay marked ‘Customers’. Once parked proceed inside and wait for your name to be called. The examiner will then start the test.

At the end of your test

You will return to the driving test centre with the examiner who will then give you a pass or a fail, with some feedback based on your drive and any mistakes you may have made. This will also be emailed to you. Fingers crossed you have passed, if not use the feedback received to work on the areas you need to before resitting your driving test.
