A Bit More About Huddersfield

The Huddersfield area is filled with a wide variety of challenging road features—even if you're a local familiar with the area, there's a lot to take in. This variety is just what's needed for a driving test—giving examiners the chance to test candidates against various conditions and put them through their paces. If you're looking to get to know more about Huddersfield in general, try out the resources below...

Huddersfield Test Route

With the DVSA putting a stop to publishing routes, you won't be able to find your exact test route. If you'd like a rough idea of what might appear on your test, however, you can look at videos of Huddersfield test routes on YouTube or download our sample Huddersfield driving test routes. If you've had lessons with a local instructor, they'll have undoubtedly had you refining your driving skills on the very same roads most likely to show up on your practical. By the time your test rolls on by, you'll be familiar with most of the route. 

Huddersfield Test Pass Rates

There’s a great selection of driving test pass rate statistics out there if you’re particularly interested. For example, we’ve compiled pass rates by area and Huddersfield test centre’s pass rates from the last few years below...

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 to Huddersfield test centre 10 minutes early with your provisional. Your test will 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 test route will end once you're back at Huddersfield test centre, at which point, you'll be given our result. It doesn't matter what your result is, you'll be given a feedback sheet that lists any faults you made. If you do pass, you'll receive your test pass certificate. If you'd like to send off for your new licence then and there, you'll have to hand over your provisional. 

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. If you'd like to get bac on the road ASAP, get PassMeFast to fast-track your test. To get things started, why not give us a call on 0333 123 4949?
