How To Get There

A Bit More About Campbeltown

Your driving test will start out in the area of Campbeltown, but will gradually take you further afield. The test centre itself is surrounded by local businesses, Campbeltown Grammar School and Campbeltown Hospital, which means that you’re likely to face heavy road and foot traffic throughout the day—this is where your hazard perception skills will come into play.

You’ll spend some time in areas like The Roading and Dalintober. Be aware, however, that the roads in these areas can be quite narrow, so you’ll need to pay attention to your road positioning, especially if there are parked vehicles. You might even be asked to demonstrate one of the driving test manoeuvres, and potentially an emergency stop, on these roads. Eventually, the pace will start to pick up as the examiner guides you onto the A483 to see how well you adjust to a different speed system.

Campbeltown Test Pass Rates

When it comes to the driving test, opinions are always divided when it comes to deciding how difficult it is. You’ve likely encountered countless people who tell you that it’s a walk in the park, or, on the opposite end of the scale, that’s it the worst test you’ll ever have to take. But who is telling the truth?

Though it’s down to individual opinion, we can get to the bottom of it by looking at pass rates. Did you know, for example, that learners in the UK have a 45.9% chance of passing? What this means is that though the test isn’t an absolute breeze, it’s certainly not impossible.

As you can see in the table below, Campbeltown learners seem to have an even better go of it...

What To Expect On The Day

So, you’ve finally reached the end of your driving lessons. Give yourself a huge round of applause! It takes a lot of time, effort and commitment to reach this point, so regardless of how your big day goes, it’s still a big accomplishment.

Now that you’ve mastered all of the skills needed to pass the driving test, there’s not much for you to do in the way of preparation. Simply get to Campbeltown test centre ten minutes early, with your provisional, and that’s that!

Once the examiner has confirmed your identity, and gotten you to sign a form, you’ll officially start the test. It will follow this basic format:

  • An eyesight test, where you’ll need to read a number plate from a distance of 20 metres
  • Two “show me, tell me” questions covering vehicle safety and maintenance
  • Twenty minutes of general driving, where you’ll be guided by the examiner, and will also need to perform one of the following manoeuvres:
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination
