Chertsey Test Route

Been trawling through the internet for Chertsey test route? The DVSA no longer publishes test routes, so you won’t be able to find anything that’s up to date.

What To Expect On The Day

Once you’ve completed your lessons, you’ve only got one final step to take before you become a fully qualified driver: the practical test. In terms of preparation, you need to arrive at Chertsey test centre 10 minutes early with your provisional licence. Your test will then consist of:

  • 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

Your practical will officially end once you’re parked back up at Chertsey test centre. You won’t have to wait long for your results. The examiner will walk you through the feedback sheet and tell you whether you’ve passed or failed. If you are successful, you’ll be handed a test pass certificate—ideal for posing with! You’ll also be able to send off for your new licence.

But What If I Fail?

If you end up failing your test, you can rest assured in the knowledge that you’re not the only learner to have done so. Some learners take a while to get things just right! It’s as simple as working on your weakest areas (courtesy of the feedback sheet) and getting back behind the wheel. PassMeFast can speed up the entire process with a fast-track practical.
