Driving Test in Barry – High-Speed A Roads

The driving examiner is highly likely to take out of Barrie onto high-speed ‘A’ roads and through rural villages. These type of roads can be dangerous due to the high-speed limits and unpredictable bends. The driving examiner will expect you to make progress when it is safe to do so. However, at the same time, the driving examiner will expect you to show caution when needed.

Small sections of dual carriageways also are taken during the driving test. When merging onto a dual carriageway, it is vital that you match your speed to that of the vehicle is already on the main carriageway. Once on the dual carriageway, left-hand lane unless overtaking. If you do need to overtake, make sure you back in at the first safe opportunity.

Driving Tests in Barry – Pass Rate

Barry driving test has much higher pass rate than most test centres, of 56%. This percentage is generated from 6 months’ worth of data, in which 1025 driving tests were undertaken and out of this, 577 pupils passed their test.

However, this does not mean that the examiner will always pass you, you must drive carefully and to the best of your ability in order to maximise your chances of passing your driving test.

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.
