A Bit More About Heysham

Indeed, candidates will have to stay on the ball when driving around Heysham, if they hope to become fully qualified drivers. Want to know more about Heysham and the Lancaster area in general?

Heysham Test Route

Uunfortunately, the DVSA no longer publishes test routes. Before you start weeping into your steering wheel, relax! By looking at videos of Heysham test routes on YouTube or by downloading our sample Heysham driving test routes, you can get a pretty good idea of which specific roads might feature on your test. Additionally, your driving instructor will have prepared you fully for what's to come—they'll have had you building up your skills on the local roads most likely to crop up on your test.

What If I Can’t Go To Heysham?

If you’re looking to take your practical at a Lancashire test centre—but you can’t head to Heysham—then Blackpool is your closest alternative.

What To Expect On The Day

Well done! You’ve reached the end of your lessons and you’re almost at the finishing line. All that’s left is to complete that much-dreaded driving test. Don’t worry—you’re more than ready for it. On the day, make sure you remember your provisional, and get to Heyham 10 minutes early. 

  • 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:
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

Upon getting back to Heysham test centre, the examiner will discuss the feedback sheet with you and go over any driving test faults you made during the test. They will then tell you their final verdict. If you're successful, you'll get a test pass certificate and the chance to send off for your new licence. You'll even be able to pose for a pass photo!

But What If I Fail?

While it is disappointing to fail your driving test, it’s not the end of the world. Plenty of learner drivers have several attempts before they’re successful. If this is the case for you, just keep a hold of that feedback sheet given to you by your examiner—it will give you a good idea of what you need to work on before you try again.
