A Bit More About Kyle of Lochalsh

To make sure that you’re fully prepared for taking to the roads without the supervision of your instructor, the driving examiner will use a wide range of road types, traffic conditions and speed systems in the area of Kyle of Lochalsh.

Your test route will begin right in the centre of Kyle of Lochalsh, which is rather compact. The roads can get quite narrow, so you’ll need to pay close attention to your positioning on the road, especially when navigating around parked vehicles and meeting oncoming traffic. The examiner might get you to demonstrate one of the manoeuvres on these roads, or they might save it for when you’re further afield.

As Kyle of Lochalsh is rather small, you won’t stay in the immediate area for long. Instead, the examiner will guide you onto the A87 towards Dornie, or past Kyleakin towards the area of Broadford.
