Uxbridge Test Route

One of the very things learner drivers do after booking their test is check online to see if they can find their test route. Whilst learners used to be able to do this years ago, the DVSA no longer publishes them in order to prevent candidates from memorising them. Don't worry about it too much—if you're learning with a local instructor, they'll get you up to speed on most of the roads that will feature on your test route. By the time your test rolls on by, you'll undoubtedly be familiar with most of the route you're taken on.

Uxbridge Test Pass Rates

Numbers are often a source of reassurance for people—stats in particular have a knack for easing nerves. If you’re someone who likes to measure your progress against other peoples’, or you’re just a big fan of interesting facts, we’ve got just the thing for you… driving test pass rates.

Thanks to the DVSA publishing their pass rates frequently, we can tell you that the national average pass rate for the UK is 47%. We can also tell you that the average pass rate for learners in Greater London is a bit lower, coming in at 40.8%. If we’re not being specific enough for you, see our table below for Uxbridge test centre’s pass rates from the last five years...

2013-14 2014-15 2015-16 2016-17 2017-18
47.6% 46.2% 45.3% 44.6% 45.5%


Uxbridge’s pass rates aren’t too shabby—they’re higher than London’s average, and they’re not that much lower than the UK’s. Remember, though, pass rates do not account for your personal ability. Regardless of how high or low a test centre’s pass rate is, it does not determine whether you pass or fail your driving test.

What To Expect On The Day

Before you know it, your practical test date will have creeped up on you. Trust us, your driving lessons will fly by in no time at all. No matter how much preparation learners do, however, there’s always a few that find themselves panicking. Sound familiar? Then you need to read our top tips on how to avoid test day nerves.

On the day of your driving test, there’s not much you need to do in terms of preparation. In fact, all you've got to do is get there 10 minutes early and remember to bring your provisional licence. The test will then follow this layout:      

  • 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

You’ll arrive back at Uxbridge test centre after around 40 minutes. Once the test is officially over, the examiner will let you know how you’ve done. They’ll also give you written and verbal feedback—something that is vital for learners regardless of the result. If you fail, it’s a way to zero in on the areas you need to work on. If you pass, you'll also get your hands on a test pass certificate. 

But What If I Fail?

Already planning for the worst-case scenario? Plenty of learners fail their driving test. Some suffer from test day nerves and others need a bit more work until they’re fully prepared. In either case, we always advise learners take more tuition to iron out any weak areas in time for the next test. Ready to go in for your next test? PassMeFast can get you back on the road ASAP.
