Middlewood Test Route

Looking for the Middlewood test route? Unfortunately, the DVSA stopped publishing them because candidates were practicing them before their tests. This won’t be a problem, as test routes are designed to incorporate difficult road types and features in order to fully test your understanding of the road. Additionally, your instructor will no doubt be familiar with the roads most likely to feature on routes and help you become accustomed to driving on them.

What If I Can't Go To Middlewood?

There’s a small variety of test centres to head to in South Yorkshire. If you can’t head to Middlewood, you don’t have to go far—Handsworth is closest.

What To Expect On The Day?

Not sure what to expect on the day of your practical test? That’s fine—it’s pretty straightforward. After completely your course, you should be completely test-ready. On the day of your test, get to Middlewood 10 minutes early with your provisional. Your practical will then follow this format: 

  • 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:
    • Parallel parking
    • Bay parking
    • Pulling up on the right
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

So, when do you know if you’ve passed? You’ll be told at the end of the test. Regardless of your result, the examiner will walk you through any faults you made by using a feedback sheet. If you do pass, you'll get a test pass certificate and the chance to send off for your new licence that day.
