A Bit More About Wood Green

Wood Green test centre is aptly located to provide examiners with plenty of different road conditions and features to test students on. From the busy centre and A10 to the quieter residential estates, there's enough variety to ensure that learners are put through their paces on their final hurdle towards becoming a fully qualified driver. As for Wood Green in general, you can get all the information you might need below…

Wood Green Test Route

Let’s face it, you’ve probably spent at least a few minutes searching for the Wood Green (London) test route, only to come up empty handed. Why is this? Well, the DVSA used to publish test routes. They soon found, however, that candidates would just memorise the routes—making the test a bit too easy. After all, the whole point of the practical is to have a candidate face an unpredictable test route.

Whilst you won't be able to get your hands on the exact route, however, your local instructor should have you fully prepared. They'll introduce you to most of the roads and areas that will show up on your test route, so you won't be too out of your element when you take your practical.

Wood Green Test Pass Rates

Test routes aren’t the only thing that intrigues learner drivers. Pass rates are also a source of much curiosity. And for good reason! Why wouldn’t you want to know how other people fare on  their driving test? Fortunately, unlike test routes, the DVSA frequently publishes driving test pass rates—keeping us updated on all the latest trends.

From the latest stats, we can tell you that the UK’s national average pass rate is 47%. As for learners situated in Greater London, chances are much lower—with a pass rate of 40.8%. We know what you’re thinking...how does Wood Green test centre fare? See for yourself with our handy table below…

2013-14 2014-15 2015-16 2016-17 2017-18
34.2% 34.8% 37.6% 39.7% 38.5%

Things aren’t looking all that impressive at Wood Green test centre. With pass rates lower than both the UK’s and London’s average, they don’t exactly inspire too much confidence. Before you get too preoccupied with pass rates, though, bear in mind that it’s down how you perform on the day of our practical.

Pass rates don’t impact your performance. In fact, pass rates are largely down to the type of area the centre is located in. Most centres in Greater London have lower pass rates, because learners have to deal with busier roads and more hazards.

What If I Can't Go To Wood Green? 

Learners certainly don’t have to worry about a shortage of test centres in Greater London—there’s plenty to go around! If you’re looking for an alternative to Wood Green, your closest options are Tottenham and Barnet.

What To Expect On The Day

Time flies when you’re learning to drive. Before you know it, you’ll be waking up on the day of your test. Even if you don’t feel like it, however, you’ll be more than prepared for it after your driving lessons are complete. In terms of preparing for your practical test, all you've got to do on the day is get to the centre 10 minutes early with your provisional. The practical will then follow this format: 

  • 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 don’t have to worry about waiting long for your test results. You’ll get them as soon as you’ve gotten back to the Wood Green test centre. The examiner will tell you your result and give you a feedback sheet—along with additional verbal feedback. If you pass, you'll also be given a test pass certificate. 

But What If I Fail?

This seems to be the million dollar question at the forefront of every learner’s mind—and understandably so. Unfortunately, we can’t offer you a guaranteed pass. What we can do, however, is offer you additional tuition and a fast-track test—so you'll be back on the road in no time at all.
