A Bit More About Norris Green

Norris Green Test Route

The DVSA no longer publishes test routes, so you won’t be able to find the exact route your examiner will use. That being said, we can make some educated guesses as to what to expect on the day. Undoubtedly, the examiner will want to take you around the busier streets surrounding the centre. Heavy traffic means that you’ll have to display good clutch control and smooth steering. You’ll also move around residential streets which gives the examiner the perfect opportunity to test manoeuvres and your ability navigate around parked vehicles and oncoming traffic.

You really don’t need to worry about your practical as long as you’ve put in the work. If you like to prepare for everything, however, you can move onto the section below or check out our driving tips.

Norris Green Test Pass Rates

If you’re big on statistics or chance, you might be interested in the national average pass rate in the UK—it currently stands at 47%. If you live in the North West, you don’t have to worry—you’ve got a 47.3% chance of passing your test. But what about Norris Green?

While Norris Green’s pass rates have been lower than the national average in recent years, they’re not horrific.

If you’ve listened to your instructor’s feedback and finished your entire lot of driving lessons, you have nothing to worry about.

What If I Can't Go To Norris Green?

Norris Green isn’t the only test centre to take your practical at in Merseyside. If you’re looking further afield, you can head to Wallasey or St Helens.

What To Expect On The Day

Congratulations! If you’re taking your practical test that means you’ve completed your entire driving course! Now you’ve only got two things to remember on the day of the test:

  • Get there 10 minutes early
  • Bring your provisional licence

Your big day will start with a quick and simple eyesight test. Remember those “show me, tell me” questions you revised for? Great—you’ll be asked one of them before you get into the car and the other whilst you’re driving. You’ll then move onto the independent driving section. This part is simple enough—most learners will take driving tests with a sat nav, wherein you'll need to follow the directions it gives. Alternatively, you might be one of the 20% of learners asked to use traffic signs instead. In addition, you’ll be tested on these manoeuvres:

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

In all, it should take only 40 minutes. If you pass your test, you’ll send off for your new licence and you’ll get that all-important test pass certificate. If you fail, it’s not the end of the world. You’ll just be given a feedback sheet letting you know where you went wrong. You don’t have to worry about getting back home at the end—your instructor will drive you back.

But What If I Fail?

As we’ve said, it’s not the end of the world if you fail your test. While this might sound heartless, you should be aware that we’ve helped hundreds of students pass their tests. Some of them do it on their first try and others have to do it a few times. Practice makes perfect, and we’re determined to help you no matter what.
