To stop candidates from memorising their test routes, the DVSA stopped publishing routes. If you'd still like a rough idea of which roads might crop up on your test, check out videos of Crewe test routes on YouTube or download our sample Crewe driving test routes. If you're learning with a local ADI, you'll be introduced to most of the roads that will end up featuring on your test route. By honing your skills on these roads, you'll be less likely to trip up on your actual practical.

What To Expect On The Day

What’s next after completing your driving lessons? Your practical driving test, of course! All that’s left for you to do on the day is to get there 10 minutes early and bring your provisional licence. Your test will then follow this 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

Thankfully, you don’t have to wait long to find out if you’re successful or not. In fact, you’ll know immediately. The examiner will give you a feedback sheet which will include any faults you might have made, along with any additional comments they think will help you improve your driving. If you’re successful, you’ll also receive a test pass certificate and you’ll be able to send off for your brand new licence.

But What If I Fail?

Whether you want to think about it or not, failure is a rather common occurrence amongst learner drivers. The important thing is to not give up—just work on the mistakes in your feedback sheet and you’ll be just fine.
