Chelmsford – Two Test Centres

There are two driving test centres Chelmsford. The first is at Hoffmans Lane conducts tests for cars and taxis. The second driving test centre is located at Hanbury road, which mainly conducts tests for larger vehicles. However, recently the DVSA has also started conducting car tests from this test centre. It is therefore vital that you check and double check your email confirmation letter to make sure that you arrive at the correct test centre. If you arrive at the wrong centre or late for your test by more than three minutes, the test will be cancelled and you will lose your fee.

Chelmsford – Busy roads

The Chelmsford driving test centres are located along busy roads. The driving examiner will expect you to have a good knowledge of traffic systems such as roundabouts. Is roundabouts will range from the small mini-roundabouts to large complicated multilane roundabouts. Also expected, is a good knowledge of crossroads, junctions and one-way systems.

There will also be some high-speed roads such as the A138 and A12 dual carriageway. In joining on to these dual carriageways you expected to merge in at the appropriate speed, without causing the traffic on the main road to slow down, swerve or to stop.

The quieter residential roads are also used in the driving test for the purpose of the reversing exercise. The examiner will only require you to do one reverse manoeuvre out of a possible four. Additionally, the emergency stop may or may not be required.

The pass rates for Chelmsford – Hoffmanns Way are likely to be similar to the one both, as they are both in roughly the same area, so it is likely that the test routes will cross over.
