A Bit More About Berwick-On-Tweed

The main reason we urge learners to take lessons in their local area is because the knowledge you accumulate will help you when you take your driving test. Examiners will make use of the roads around Berwick-On-Tweed test centre to test whether or not you’re actually ready to become a fully qualified driver.

They’ll lead you away from the industrial estate (which can get busy during rush hour) and likely direct you towards the town centre. There, they’ll carefully watch as you navigate through different traffic systems and keep your eyes peeled for any errant pedestrians or cyclists. Things will gradually speed up, as they take you on local A roads like the A1 and A698, before slowing back down when they test your ability to demonstrate one of the driving test manoeuvres.
