Coventry Test Route

With the DVSA no longer publishing test routes, you won't be able to get your hands on an up-to-date Coventry test route. Fortunately, you can look at videos of Coventry test routes on YouTube or download our sample Coventry driving test routes to get a rough idea of which roads might crop up. If you're taking lessons with an ADI, they'll also get you to work on your new driving skills on the roads most likely to show up on your test—like the A444.

What To Expect On The Day

Prepared for your big day? All that's left for you to do on the day is get to Coventry 10 minutes early with your provisional. Want some last-minute advice? Regardless of whether you think you’ve failed during your test, keep going!

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:
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

Once you get back to Coventry test centre, you’ll be asked to park the car in one of the bays. The examiner will then give you your result and run through any faults you made using a feedback sheet. If you do pass, you'll receive a test pass certificate. You'll also be asked if you'd like to send off for your new licence then and there. 

But What If I Fail?

As overused as the saying might be, it’s really not the end of the world if you end up failing your driving tests—hundreds of learners fail their test every week. All that’s important is that you learn from your mistakes when you go in for your next test.
