A Bit More About Isle of Tiree

Wondering what your test route at the Isle of Tiree test centre will look like? Though we’d love to offer you test routes, the DVSA no longer publishes them. What we can do, however, is look at the area surrounding the test centre and make some educated guesses.

It’s likely that the examiner will guide you onto the nearby B8065. This will pretty much take you on a loop around the Isle of Tiree, where you’ll pass areas like Heanish and Balephetrish. Though the route might not seem as complex as the ones in busy, urban areas, it will still be a challenge. You’ll be on long, winding rural roads for most of the route—it can be easy to get complacent with your speed and hazard awareness, which could prove to be catastrophic when you encounter bends, so pay attention!

What To Expect On The Day

On behalf of PassMeFast, we’d like to congratulate you on getting this far in your journey! You’re finally test-ready and you’ve only got one hurdle standing in your way of earning your pink licence. It’s an incredible achievement and you should be proud of yourself no matter what result you end up getting.

Your big day will start with your instructor picking you up and taking you to the Isle of Tiree test centre ten minutes before your test starts. You’ll use this time to park up and meet the examiner, who will then ask to see your provisional and get you to sign a form.

Once that’s out of the way, your driving test will consist of:

  • 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
