Dumfries is home to two driving test centres. The first conducts testing for cars and motorcycles while the second conducts driving tests for large goods vehicles. Therefore, it is essential that you check your email confirmation letter so that you arrive at the correct driving test centre.

Earlier Driving Test Dumfries – Roundabouts

The driving test centre which conducts tests for cars is located among many road systems including roundabouts. These roundabouts will range from small mini-roundabouts that are often located in the residential areas to large multilane roundabouts just outside of the town.

Short Notice Driving Test Dumfries – Dual Carriageways

Dual carriageways such as the A75 and rural roads are also likely to appear in the driving test. The rural country lanes can be tricky due to the high speeds combined with the often sharp bends. The driving examiner will expect you make progress when appropriate. However, at the same time, it is vital that you drive at a speed at which you can stop within the distance you can see to be clear. Safety is paramount.
