How to pass your test in Northampton?
Various road types can be expected during the driving test from Northampton Driving Test Centre. Village and country roads are frequently used, also high speed dual carriageway ‘A’ roads such as the A45 are also used as part of the test routes. Judging speed can be difficult, especially around harsh corners on rural roads.
In Northampton itself, busy streets will feature on the test and include road systems such as roundabouts, junctions and crossroads. Residential areas often have narrow roads and areas that make meeting oncoming vehicles challenging.
The narrow streets often require passing parked cars whilst also giving way to oncoming vehicles. These areas are frequently used for test manoeuvre purposes also.
The test can be expected to last around 40 minutes and to include a manoeuvre, the emergency stop is requested on every other test conducted and independent driving is mandatory. Test centre routes are designed by the examiners who conduct practical tests at their local test centre.
