Learners in Norwich are spoilt for choice when it comes to test centres—there are two in the local area!

It’s around 15 minutes from the city centre and also happens to be close to Norwich International Airport, so there’s no way you’ll miss it. If you want to give yourself the best chance possible of passing your test, we’d recommend familiarising yourself with your chosen test centre. The more prepared you are, the better off you’ll be!

How To Get There

If you’re centrally located, it’s not too difficult getting to Norwich Jupiter Road from the city centre. To start, you need to get onto the A1151 and continue onto the B1150. At the roundabout, you need to turn onto the A1042 and continue onto Mile Cross Lane. Finally, you need to make the turn onto Jupiter Road. Of course, not all learners will be locals. If this is the case for you, you can make use of nearby A roads like the A140, A47 and A146 to get there just fine. If it’s your first time heading to Norwich, be sure to follow these directions with your sat nav.

A Bit More About Norwich Jupiter Road

To make sure that you’re truly ready to become a fully qualified driver, your test route will make use of some of the most challenging roads around Norwich. If you’ve taken lessons in the local area, however, it’s likely that you’ve encountered these challenges before. With the test centre’s close proximity to the city centre, you can be sure that it will crop up on your route, along with local A roads like the A146 and A47. Be sure to pay close attention to changes in speed limits as you progress through your test—you don’t want to get caught out. At some point, your route will guide you through a quieter area, like Heigham Grove, in order to test your confidence with driving around parked vehicles whilst meeting oncoming traffic, not to mention one of the driving test manoeuvres.

Norwich Jupiter Road Test Route

In preparation for your big day, you’ve probably spent some time trawling the internet for your Norwich Jupiter Road test route. Unfortunately, you’ve probably come up short. This is because the DVSA no longer publishes its test routes. Why, you ask? It was a move designed to stop learners from wasting their time on memorising routes, instead of focusing their attention on their lessons. Though it might seem unfair, it won’t actually impact you that much as long as you’ve had lessons with a local ADI. They’ll have you learning on the very same roads that will crop up on your route.

If your nerves still aren’t settled, however, you can get a peek behind the curtain by watching videos of Norwich Jupiter Road test routes on YouTube. You can also try downloading our sample Norwich driving test routes. Please note, however, that these routes begin from Norwich’s old test centre, not Jupiter Road (there will be some overlap though).

Norwich Jupiter Road Test Pass Rates

If learners aren’t obsessing over test routes, they’re spending their time looking over driving test pass rates. And why wouldn’t they? Is there anything better than statistics? Not to PassMeFast, that’s for sure! We look forward to the latest DVSA statistics and spend countless hours analysing new trends. Did you know, for example, that learner drivers in the UK have a 45.8% chance of passing their test? This can then vary depending on where they’re located, whether they’re learning in a manual or automatic car and how many test attempts they’ve had so far.

If you’re interested in keeping things short and sweet, however, we’ve compiled pass rates from Norwich Jupiter Road test centre just for you! In the table below, you’ll find pass rates from the last few years…

2014-15 2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19
- - 57.7% 52.0% 50.8%

As the centre only opened in 2016, that’s as far back as we can go for pass rates. Since its opening, however, Norwich Jupiter Road’s pass rates have been well above the national average. Though this might seem like music to your ears, you’ve got to bear in mind that this does not mean you’re definitely going to pass your test. You can’t simply rely on statistics to get you your full licence. You need to finish your lessons, listen to your instructor and prepare for your big day.

What If I Can’t Go To Norwich Jupiter Road?

No longer interested in taking your test at Norwich Jupiter Road test centre? Or are you looking for a backup option so you can get an earlier test date? Well, you’re in luck! You’ve only got a 20 minute drive to get to the next available centre: Norwich Peachman Way. If you’re looking to move further away from Norwich, there’s also Lowestoft test centre.

What To Expect On The Day

So you’ve finally reached the end of your driving lessons. Congratulations! You’re only one step away from potentially joining our pass photos of the week! All that’s left for you to do is impress the examiner by showing off the driving skills and confidence that you’ve been sharpening since your first lesson. Trust us—you’ve got this.

If you want to avoid not being able to take the test, you’ll want to double check that you’ve got your provisional licence with you on your big day. (Set a reminder on your phone if you’ve got the memory of a goldfish!) You’ll also need to get to Norwich Jupiter Road 10 minutes before your test is due to start. This will give you time to park the car and meet your driving examiner.

Your test will follow this basic structure:

  • 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

After toiling under the beady gaze of your examiner for around 40 minutes, your test route will finally loop back around to Norwich Jupiter Road. Once you’ve parked up and turned off the ignition, you can finally let out a sigh of relief. All that’s left is for the examiner to complete their paperwork. Then, they’ll give you your result. They’ll also give you a full breakdown of any faults you may have built up, either on a physical feedback sheet, or by email via the driving test app.

But What If I Fail?

As with any other test you take in life, failure is always a possibility with the driving test. After all, there’s no such thing as a guaranteed pass. As disheartening as the experience can be, it doesn’t have to mark the end of your driving journey. In fact, upon failing, you’ll receive your very own cheat sheet for your next test—your feedback sheet will tell you exactly what you need to work on to pass.

If you’re in need of a complete confidence boost, or have a bad habit that needs ironing out, book a refresher course with a local ADI. Then, book a fast-track practical test with PassMeFast! To get things started today, give us a call on 0333 123 4949, or contact us online.
