A Bit More About Huddersfield

The Huddersfield area is filled with challenging road features—even if you’re a local, there’s a lot to take in. While driving around for your lessons, you should pay attention to the areas that trip you up the most. Then, you can ask your instructor to test you on them repeatedly until you’re completely confident. You’ll want to practice especially hard on high-speed A roads like the A640.

Huddersfield Test Route

Have you been looking around for the Huddersfield test route? With the DVSA putting a stop to publishing routes, we expect you’ve probably not had much luck. Instead of dwelling on this, you should spend your time improving your driving. Everyone has weaknesses—figure out what yours are and ask your instructor for tips. For example, if your clutch control is a little bit off, try to practice as much as possible—don’t just stick to residential areas, test the waters with dual carriageways. Practice makes perfect, so keep up the hard work!

What To Expect On The Day

After completing your full driving course, you should finally be ready for that all-important practical test. On the day, all you’ve got to do is:

  • Get there 10 minutes early
  • Bring your provisional licence

You’ll begin by taking a quick eyesight test which involves reading out a number plate from 20 or 20.5 metres away. The examiner will then follow this with two questions in the “show me, tell me” section of the test. These questions involve the maintenance of your car, e.g., “Show me how you’d clean the windscreen using the windscreen washer and wipers”. One question will be asked before you start driving and the other will be during your test route. The independent driving section itself is simple enough. You’re just following a route using a sat nav, or traffic signs if you’re one of the 1 in 5 candidates asked to do so. You’ll also be asked to demonstrate the following manoeuvres:

  • Parallel parking
  • Bay parking
  • Pulling up on the right

At the end of your test, you’ll receive your test pass certificate if you’ve passed. If you need them to send you your new licence, you’ll have to hand over your provisional. If you failed, the examiner will walk you through exactly where you went wrong. The test should take around 40 minutes.

But What If I Fail?

While it can be disappointing to fail your practical test, it’s not the end of the world. You can quite easily pass the next time around as long as you take on board the examiner’s feedback. You can use this feedback to improve your driving as much as you can before your next test.
