Barnstaple driving test centre is situated on busy roads. Therefore, expect a deal with various road systems. A good knowledge of roundabout is required. This will range from mini roundabouts to large multi-roundabouts. Slow down on approach to roundabouts and plan to stop. However, at the same time, make early observations and be prepared to go.

Expect to find both open and closed junctions, some of which may have put the road marking. To pass a driving test at Barnstaple, it is vital that you’re watching road signs and road markings.

Driving Test Barnstaple – Pass Rate

The pass rate of Barnstaple is calculated to be 49%; this is slightly above the country average of 42%.

Each month, on average 320 driving tests are conducted here. With around 150 students passing every month.

When you book your last-minute intensive driving lessons, you will have the choice of learning in an automatic or a manual car. Last year alone, there were over 1.7 million driving tests conducted. Out of these, only about 30% were taken in an automatic car.

Manual or Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons

It’s easier to pass your driving test in a week by taking an automatic car compared to a manual. This is because you don’t have the extra task of changing gears, especially on approach to junctions such as roundabouts. This, in turn, means that you will have more time to focus on the speed and observations on the approach to such junctions. Once you’ve passed your driving test in an automatic, you will be restricted to driving only automatics. However, you are most welcome to upgrade to a manual license by retaking and passing another test.
