A Bit More About Perth Arran Road

Your driving test will begin with the examiner guiding you out of North Muirton Industrial Estate. You might end up nudged towards the roads around Inveralmond, which are quite compact. This could cause problems if you end up facing oncoming traffic whilst manoeuvring around parked vehicles, so keep an eye on your road positioning and speed.

The examiner will then guide you around the city which, as you’re probably aware, remains busy no matter what time of the day it is. You’ll likely encounter a lot of stop-start traffic, pedestrians and cyclists—so keep making observations and checking your blindspots. At some point, the examiner will have you demonstrate one of the manoeuvres in one of the car parks, or on one of the quieter, residential roads.

Eventually, the examiner will pick out a local A road for you to head onto. They’re certainly spoilt for choice here in Perth. They could pick out the A9 and take you up towards Dunkeld, the A90 towards Longforgan, or even the A85 towards Forebrae.
