A Bit More About Chorley

Learning to drive isn’t just about skills like clutch control or following traffic signs. It’s also about getting used to driving around the area you’ll be travelling around once you’ve got your licence. If you’re taking your test at Chorley test centre, the odds are that you’re a local.

Chorley Test Route

Tried looking for the Chorley test route? You might be able to find old routes, but you won’t be able to find anything recent—the DVSA doesn’t publish them anymore. While you might think it unfair, remember that this is just like any other test—you don’t get exact questions for exams, so why should your driving test be any different? This shouldn’t be an issue, as long as you’re used to the local roads and are comfortable with driving on a variety of road types—not the least of which include multi-lane roundabouts, one-way systems and crossroads.

Don’t forget to revise the show me, tell me questions—they’ll also feature on your test!

What To Expect On The Day

Ta-da! You’ve completed your driving lessons and you’re only one small step away from getting that brand new licence! All that’s left to do is pass your driving test. On the day of your practical, you’ve only got to prepare in the way of two things:

  • Get there 10 minutes early
  • Bring your provisional licence

To make sure you’re safe to drive, the examiner will ask you to read a number plate from 20 or 20.5 metres away as part of an eyesight test. They’ll then ask you one “tell me” question from the “show me, tell me” section. The “show me” question will be saved for when you’re driving. As part of the independent driving section, you’ll follow a route via sat nav—though 1 in 5 candidates will be asked to use traffic signs instead, so make sure you’re comfortable doing so before your test. The examiner will also test your skills on:

  • Parallel parking
  • Bay parking
  • Pulling up on the right

Once you get back to Chorley test centre, you’ll get to see if your hard work has paid off. Upon passing, you’ll get a test pass certificate and you can send off for your new licence. Upon failing, your examiner will give you a feedback sheet detailing the faults you made.

But What If I Fail?

It doesn’t matter if your best friend passed on their first try with no faults; everyone is different. Some people need to take their test a few times before they come out on top. The point is, you need to learn from your mistakes—don’t throw out that feedback sheet just because you’re angry at the examiner. Use this feedback to improve your driving before you get back in the ring.
