A Bit More About Malton

No matter which test centre you take your practical at, we always advise learners to get familiar with the surrounding area. Located near the Scarborough area, you can expect to come across mostly rural roads around Malton test centre. That’s not to say you won’t come across any traffic or congestion however, as the busy A65 dual carriageway is nearby. Not sure what else there is to know about the Malton area?

Malton Test Route

No matter where you look, you won’t be able to find an exact test route for Malton due to the DVSA no longer publishing routes. Hold in that sigh of disappointment! As long as you pay attention in your driving lessons, you should be more than prepared for your practical. After all, you won’t be able to predict what will happen on the road in real life, so why should your test be any different? Remember your lessons in hazard awareness and clutch control and you should be fine.

Not sure whether to learn in manual or automatic? That’s fine, check out automatic vs. manual—which is best?

What If I Can't Go To Malton?

Malton test centre, fortunately, isn’t the only place you can take your practical at in North Yorkshire. If you need an alternative, you can simply head on over to York or Scarborough.

What To Expect On The Day

Gotten to the end of your lessons? Great—you should be completely test-ready by this point. All you’ve got to remember to do on the day of your test is:

  • Get there 10 minutes early
  • Bring your provisional licence

Your practical test will commence with a quick eyesight test before moving onto the “show me, tell me” section which you should have practiced for. Here, you’ll be asked two questions regarding the maintenance of your car, e.g., “Show me how you’d clean the windscreen using windscreen washer and wipers”. One question will be asked before you get into the car and the other whilst you’re driving. You will then move onto the independent driving section lasting 20 minutes. You’ll follow a test route using a sat nav—be aware that 1 in 5 candidates will be asked to follow traffic signs instead. The examiner will expect you to demonstrate the following manoeuvres:

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

Upon getting back to Malton test centre, you’ll get your test results. If you pass, you’ll get your test pass certificate and have your new licence sent off for. If you fail, you’ll be given a feedback sheet. The entire practical should take around 40 minutes.

But What If I Fail?

It doesn’t matter how confident learners are, almost all of them still ask the all-important question—what happens if I fail? While it can be a distressing experience, it’s not the end of the world if you fail your practical. All that you can do is learn from your mistakes and move on until you pass.
