Greenford Test Route

The DVSA has officially stopped publishing test routes in order to prevent candidates from memorising them before their practical. You don't have to worry about this, however. If you're taking a driving course with a local ADI, they'll have you driving on the local roads that will undoubtedly feature on your test route. So keep your eyes peeled on your lessons!

What To Expect On The Day

So you’ve mastered all the driving skills you could possibly need for your practical test. Now, you’ve got one final hurdle before you become a fully qualified driver. On the day of your test, you need to arrive at the centre 10 minutes early and remember to bring your provisional. The practical will then proceed with: 

  • 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:
    • Parallel parking
    • Bay parking
    • Pulling up on the right
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

Once you get back to Greenford test centre, the examiner will ask you to park and turn off the ignition. They will then tell you your result. You'll be handed a feedback sheet—detailing any driving test faults you may or may not have accumulated—regardless of the outcome. If you're successful, you'll also be handed your very own test pass certificate. 

But What If I Fail?

Ah—the f word. Nothing’s quite as terrifying to a learner driver. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be a big issue. It’s as simple as getting back in the ring and trying again. PassMeFast can offer you additional tuition and a fast-track practical, so you can get on the road in no time at all.
