Learners in the capital face toughest challenge

THOSE brave enough to learn to drive in London take longer to pass their tests. (Jay like many of our customers rose to the challenge!)

A new study by Privilege Car Insurance shows that learners in Belvedere, South London have a pass-rate of just 31%. Shedding L-plates isn’t much easier north of the Thames either, with just 32% passing in Wanstead, North East London.

That’s compared to the 70% of new drivers who pass learning on the roads in Kelso, Scotland and 69% in Lochgilphead, Scotland.

Charlotte Fielding from the car insurance firm said: “The general rule is that if you are driving on busier roads and complex road systems, your driving test is likely to be tougher.”

HIGHEST PASS RATES

70% – Kelso, Scotland
69% – Lochgilphead, Scotland
67% – Stranraer, Scotland
67% – Kendal, Cumbria
66% – Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria

32% – Wanstead, NE London

Test centre details

Waiting room is on the 1st floor, there are two flights of stairs. Candidates with mobility impairment will be met in the DTC car park.
Toilets to first floor.

Situated on the busy city roads of London, Goodmayes Driving Test Centre test routes will involve many complicated roundabouts, junctions and crossroads. A high level of practice and knowledge of such roads in and around the test centre is beneficial.
Narrow residential roads are often featured as part of the driving test. These roads involve narrow lanes, sharp bends and oncoming traffic.
Busy A roads such as the A1083 and A118 are highly likely as are dual carriageways such as the A406, A12 and A13 with a slight possibility of more rural roads that are within test centre radius.

The driving test examiner will require at least 1 driving test manoeuvre with a 1 in 3 possibility of incorporating the emergency stop procedure. Goodmayes Driving Test Centre has a small car park that is frequently used for the bay parking manoeuvre.

The car park at Goodmayes is small, try not to arrive for the driving test more than 10 minutes before the test booking time as this may conflict with other learner drivers returning from their test.

The driving test from Goodmayes Driving Test Centre is challenging due to difficult roads and roundabouts. As Goodmayes is located in a busy area, more emphasis is placed on busy urban roads and very little on country roads and driving.

A good understanding of the driving test routes from Goodmayes Driving Test Centre will benefit you with knowledge of the types of road you will be taking during the driving test.
