Whilst we'd love to put your mind at ease and give you the test route for Barnet, the DVSA no longer publishes routes. This shouldn't be much of an issue, however, as your instructor will introduce you to most—if not all—of the roads that will feature on your test, including local A roads, roundabouts and one-way systems need to work on. You can even search for videos of Barnet test routes on YouTube to see what you should look out for on your practical.

Did you know that the UK’s national average pass rate stands at 47%? For those of you in London, however, your chances are much lower at 40.8%. And what about learners at Barnet test centre?

Whilst Barnet’s pass rates aren’t the most comforting in the UK, it’s easy to see why they’re so low. Test centres located in busier, urban areas always tend to end up with the lowest pass rates.

If you’re going to be driving in the Barnet area once you’re a qualified driver, however, it’s vital that you learn and pass in the local area.
We’d suggest not giving pass rates much thought—it’s all down to your own ability and effort, after all!

Your practical will end once you're back at Barnet test centre, at which time you'll be given your test results.
