How To Get There

Unless you know the roads around Llanelli like the back of your hands, you probably won’t be able to reach Llanelli test centre without any assistance. If you’re heading there without your instructor then (with a supervisor, of course!), use these directions to avoid taking a wrong turn.

A Bit More About Llanelli

Wondering what your test route will be like? Though we can’t give you your exact Llanelli test route, we can make a few educated guesses. Your test will start in the centre of town, which means you’ll have to contend with a lot of foot and road traffic, regardless of the time of day. With the proximity of local schools, like Stebonheath County Primary School, you’ll want to keep your eye out for changes to the speed limit and your speedometer.

As you move further out from the town centre, the examiner might push you towards the roads around Llwynhendy, which are ideal for the driving test manoeuvre and, potentially, the emergency stop, as they’re slightly quieter. With the high number of roundabouts scattered around the area, it’s likely that you’ll be guided onto at least one during your test, so make sure you get some practice in beforehand.

At some point, the examiner will take you onto the A484, leading onto the A4138, to take you further afield to test your abilities against more rural roads. They might lead you towards areas like Pontarddulais or Gowerton

What If I Can't Go To Llanelli? 

Though Llanelli is the most convenient test centre choice for local learners, that doesn’t mean that it’s your only option. You’ve got other test centres in Carmarthenshire and its neighbouring counties, the closest of which include:

What To Expect On The Day

When you began your learning journey, you probably didn’t know the clutch pedal from the accelerator, and the mere thought of tackling roundabouts could have you feeling nauseous. Now, though, you’re a pro at moving through the gears and you can handle any of the manoeuvres without breaking a sweat. All that’s standing in the way of you and your pink licence is one single test. Piece of cake!

In terms of preparation, all you need to do is get to Llanelli ten minutes early with your provisional. You’ll meet your examiner, show them your provisional and then sign a form. The minute you walk out of the test centre, your driving test will officially start.

It 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

Improve Your Chances With PassMeFast

When it comes to learning to drive, it can be extremely difficult to pick a driving school that offers you the right approach. On the one hand, there are traditional schools that offer hourly lessons on a weekly basis, which means that it could take months, or even years, for you to earn your full licence. On the other hand, there are crash course providers who only offer generic courses with extremely rigid schedules. PassMeFast does things a little differently.

All of our courses, whether you’re a beginner or almost test-ready, are completely flexible. This means that your lessons can fit around your schedule, regardless of how busy you might be. You’ll collaborate with your Llanelli-based instructor to determine your lesson plan, and then get to work on developing your driving skills. To ensure there aren’t any gaps between your last lesson and your test, we’ll even fast-track your practical at Llanelli!
