A Bit More About Wednesbury

Wednesbury Test Route

We can't give you an exact, up-to-date Wednesbury test route on account of the DVSA no longer publishing test routes. Fortunately, your instructor will be able to make educated guesses as to which specific roads might show up on your test. They'll incorporate these roads into your lessons, ensuring that you'll be well-versed with the West Bromwich area by the time you take your test. You can also take a look at videos of Wednesbury test routes on YouTube for an idea of what to expect on your big day. 

Wednesbury Test Pass Rates

The DVSA frequently releases pass rates for test centres in the UK to give the public a look at how candidates fare on their tests. The national average for the UK, for example, is 47%. For those in the West Midlands, however, the pass rates stand slightly lower at 45.1%. What about learners at Wednesbury test centre? Take a peek at the pass rates...

What To Expect On The Day

The practical test is the final step you need to take before getting your hands on that new licence. As long as you’ve got the right date and a car for the test, all that's left to do is to get to Wednesbury 10 minutes early with your provisional. Your test will then 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:
    • 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

At the end of your test, the examiner will give you your results and walk you through any faults you made with a handy feedback sheet. If you've passed your test, you'll also be handed a test pass certificate—perfect to pose with in a pass photo!

But What If I Fail?

Unsurprisingly, it can take some learner drivers a few tries to pass their driving test. Sometimes nerves play a role in a learner failing, and other times it’s just a few silly mistakes. All that’s left to do when you fail is to get back on the horse and try again. PassMeFast can speed up this process by fast-tracking your test.
