The town of Crieff might be famous for its whisky, but we know it better as the home to one of only four practical test centres in Perth and Kinross. As with many test centres in the UK, Crieff test centre is situated in the town’s local fire station, which certainly makes it easy to find for locals and visitors alike.

If you’re keen to get ahead of the competition, you won’t go wrong with our essential test centre guide. It will walk you through what happens in the driving test, what you can do to increase your chances of passing and much more!

How To Get There

During your lessons, your instructor will take you up to Crieff test centre and help you build up a familiarity with the roads around it. If you’re planning to take a look around before this happens, however, you’ll want to use these directions to avoid taking a wrong turn.

A Bit More About Crieff

Your driving test route at Crieff will probably start with the examiner guiding you up the A822 towards the town centre. This will take you past multiple B&Bs, Crieff Cottage Hospital and other local businesses. As you’d expect, this might mean that you’ll encounter heavy foot and road traffic, especially during the busier times of the day. In these types of situations, the examiner will be keeping a close eye on your observations and clutch control.

Depending on the exact route, your driving test manoeuvre demonstration might take place in the centre of Crieff itself. The examiner might pick out one of the local car parks, or they could choose one of the roads around Dollerie Terrace, for example.

Almost all driving test routes end up incorporating a local A road into the mix, as it’s a good way of seeing how well a learner can adapt to a different speed system, and how aware they are of their surroundings. You’ll either end up on the A85, potentially towards Dalginross, or on the A822 towards an area like Braco.

Crieff Test Pass Rates

Almost all learner drivers are fascinated by driving test pass rates. If you’re the same, you’re in luck! We’re about to share some interesting ones with you! Before that happens, though, we’d first like to emphasise that you shouldn’t take them too seriously. No matter how high a test centre’s pass rates are, they’re not a guarantee that you’ll pass. It’s your hard work and determination that will increase your chances of success.

Now that’s out of the way, we can proceed! Learners in the UK currently have a 45.9% chance of passing their test. This average increases dramatically for those heading to Crieff, however, as you can see below...

Once that’s sorted, your test will 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:
