How To Get There

A Bit More About Grantown-On-Spey

Your driving test will begin with the examiner guiding you around the town centre. You’ll likely end up facing a lot of road and foot traffic, especially during rush hour. You should also prepare for stop-start driving—though it might be frustrating to deal with, it’s the perfect opportunity for you to highlight your excellent clutch control and hazard awareness.

There’s a wide range of tricky residential roads in the area, which will test your ability to meet oncoming traffic safely, whilst manoeuvring around parked vehicles. You’ll need to keep making frequent observations and pay close attention to your road positioning.

To test your abilities against a different speed system, the examiner will nudge you towards the local A95. There are some challenging roundabouts scattered along it, so make sure you’re comfortable with them before you take your test. Depending on the exact route, the examiner may guide you towards an area like Carrbridge or Nethy Bridge, either of which could be the battleground for your driving test manoeuvre.
