Durham – Rural Area

Located within easy reach of many rural country roads is Durham driving test centre. These roads seem pretty but can be difficult to navigate due to oncoming vehicles and the sharp bends. The learner driver must make sure that they get plenty of practice on these road types in order to be able to assess the correct speed to approach these bends.

These rural country roads often lead into small villages which is a common area for learner drivers to fail their practical test. These villages often have small, confined spaces. When entering these villages from the high-speed road, it is very important that the learner driver monitors their speedometer. It can take a good few seconds to adapt to the new lower speed limits.

Durham – City of Durham

The driving examiner will also take you through the city of Durham. This will give the examiner the opportunity to assess your ability and skills and dealing with various road systems such as crossroads, roundabouts and junctions of all shapes and sizes. You

High-speed “A” roads such as the A167 and the A690 may also form part of the Durham driving test route. When joining on to such roads it is imperative that your speed match that the drivers already on the main road. Under no circumstances must you force the drivers on the main road to either slow down, swerve or to stop.

Pass Rate at Durham Driving Test Centre

Durham driving test centre is extremely busy, with over 600 driving tests being conducted monthly. However, it also has a very high pass rate, which is very rare for such a busy centre. Its pass rate is calculated to be at exactly 60%, far higher than the average for test centres in the country. This data is collected from the fact that during a 6 month period, 3600 driving tests were conducted, out of these examiners passed 2160 of them.

Even if the pass rate is high, this is not an indication that the examiners are extra lenient, or that they will pass you even if you make mistakes. You must prove to the examiner that you have exceptional driving skills, and are capable of driving in a multiple of situations.
