How To Get There

Once you get through a few lessons with your instructor, they’ll start to take you around Blyth test centre so that you can develop your skills on your potential test route. If you’re planning on looking around the test centre before this, however, make sure you follow these directions with a sat nav to ensure you end up in the right place.

A Bit More About Blyth

Learners looking to take their practical at Blyth test centre will have to be prepared to face the most challenging road types and traffic conditions that the local area has to offer.

Your examiner will carefully monitor your ability to move away from the town centre, keeping an eye on your clutch control and hazard perception skills with potential pedestrians and cyclists, onto local A roads like the A189. From there, they’ll observe you as you face countless roundabouts, tricky junctions and the occasional one-way system. They’ll also get you to demonstrate one of the driving test manoeuvres, and potentially an emergency stop, in one of the quieter areas.

What To Expect On The Day

Though you probably didn’t think you were going to make it (after crying over gears and parallel parking), you’re finally ready to take your driving test. Give yourself a big pat on the back—it’s no mean feat!

Now that you’re almost at the finish line, don’t spoil things by having your test cancelled due to forgetting your provisional or showing up late. Double check that you’ve got your provisional before you leave and get to Blyth test centre 10 minutes before your practical begins.

Your test will then proceed with:

  • 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
