Driving around Stoke-on-Trent

During your driving lessons, you’ll be doing more than just building up skills and muscle memory—you’ll also become used to the area where your test will take place. This means that you can expect a slightly different experience depending on whether you’re taking your test at Cobridge or Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Though the two test centres may initially seem far apart, there are a few areas of overlap, with dual carriageways such as the A500 likely to appear on routes from both starting points. Nonetheless, you will still need to deal with a few individual features, such as the string of roundabouts on Newcastle’s Lower Road, or the Waterloo Roundabout on routes from Cobridge. Fortunately, by the time you come to sit your practical, your instructor will have shown you exactly how to deal with them. So, while no test ever comes with a guaranteed pass, you will have all the skills to walk away with that licence!
