The Hull area can get quite congested—particularly around the centre, due to the close proximity of the University of Hull. Also near the test centre are busy A roads like the A1079 and A1165, which may feature as part of your test route. Meanwhile, you can expect to come across a variety of residential areas too. If you’re looking to get to know the area better, we’ve got all the relevant resources you might need below...
While it’s impossible to lay out the exact route you’ll follow on the day of your practical, it is possible to make some educated guesses. Examiners choose features on their routes very carefully to ensure they’re able to assess a candidate’s driving ability. Roundabouts leading onto dual carriageways, for example, are particularly difficult for learner drivers. They’ll also move you between urban roads and residential areas to monitor your clutch control and hazard awareness.

Your practical test will finally follow once you’ve completed your driving lessons. Beyond your lessons, there’s not much else you can do in preparation for your test except to:
The practical starts off easily enough with an eyesight test before moving onto the “show me, tell me” section in which you’ll be asked two questions relating to your car’s maintenance and safety, e.g., “Show me how you’d check that the horn is working”. Be aware that one question will be asked before you get into the car and the other whilst you’re driving. The independent driving section—lasting 20 minutes—consists of you following a route using a sat nav. Alternatively, 1 in 5 candidates are asked to use traffic signs instead. The examiner will also expect you to demonstrate:
Once you get back to the centre, you’ll be told your result. You’ll receive your test pass certificate if you pass. You’ll also have to hand in your provisional in order to send off for your new licence. If you fail your test, you’ll be given vital feedback by the examiner detailing your mistakes. The entire process shouldn’t take much longer than 40 minutes.
Do you like to prepare for the worst? If the answer’s yes, you really don’t have to worry. When you fail, your examiner tells you exactly where you went wrong. While this can be discouraging, it’s great for helping you iron out those creases before you go for your next practical.
