A Bit More About Cumnock

Though it might not seem like it, the location of Cumnock test centre was carefully chosen to ensure that examiners would have a wide enough variety of road types and features to use for test routes. The test centre’s close proximity to the town centre means that you’ll likely encounter heavy traffic during rush hour, so your clutch control will have to be on point—you’ll also want to keep an eye out for any pedestrians or cyclists.

As you move away from the centre of Cumnock, you’ll likely end up on nearby A roads like the A76 and A70. You’ll want to make sure you’re comfortable with roundabouts, as there are plenty scattered along those A roads! The examiner will also take you around a quieter, residential area, like Auchinleck, so that you can demonstrate one of the manoeuvres.

Cumnock Test Pass Rates

Though we’d urge you to not take pass rates too seriously—after all, it’s all down to your individual effort on the day—they can be quite fun and interesting to look at.

Did you know, for example, that learners in the UK have a 45.9% chance of passing their test? This is by no means a static figure, though. It can fluctuate depending on the county you’re in, what transmission your car is and even how old you are. If that wasn’t enough, your choice of test centre can also play a role.
