What If I Can't Go To Airdrie? 

If Airdrie test centre is no longer an ideal option for you, or you’re struggling to find an early test date there, there are other nearby alternatives including:

What To Expect On The Day

If your instructor hasn’t had the chance to walk you through the driving test yet, or taken you on a mock test, we’ll give you a quick rundown of how your big day will go.

For starters, you and your instructor will aim to get to Airdrie test centre 10 minutes before your practical starts. This short window of time will allow you to park the car and meet up with your examiner. Before you get into the nitty gritty of the test, you’ll have to show the examiner your provisional and sign a form.

Once that’s out of the way, your test will follow this straightforward format:

  • 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
