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, if you're learning with a local instructor, they'll be able to make some educated guesses as to what to expect on the day. They will introduce you to the junctions, dual carriageways and other road types that are most likely to feature on your test. By the time your course is complete, you'll be more than prepared. If you'd like to get a better look at what to expect, take a look at videos of Norris Green test routes on YouTube.

What To Expect On The Day

Congratulations! If you’re taking your practical test that means you’ve completed your entire driving course! All you've got to do on the day of your test is get there 10 minutes early—don't forget your provisional. The format of your practical will be as follows: 

  • 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:
    • Parallel parking
    • Bay parking
    • Pulling up on the right
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

The test route will end once you're back at Norris Green test centre. Once you've parked up, the examiner will walk you through any driving faults you made by using the feedback sheet. If you pass your test, you’ll send off for your new licence and you’ll get that all-important test pass certificate.
