Cancellation Driving Tests Edinburgh – Two Test Centres

Edinburgh has two driving test centres. The first is Musselburgh and the second is Currie. Regardless of which test centre you choose both will involve various road systems including roundabouts of all shapes and sizes. Crossroads, junctions and possibly one-way roads will also feature in the driving test. The examiner at Edinburgh driving test centre will expect you to have a good understanding and skills able to deal with these hazards.

Earlier Driving Test Edinburgh – Residential Roads

Part of the driving test will involve residential roads. These residential roads seem very easy. However, it can easily be challenging. It is due to the fact that many of the residential roads in Edinburgh are often narrow with parked cars. You must, therefore, be prepared to give way to oncoming vehicles.

Rural Roads

The driving examiner may take you out of Edinburgh into the rural roads. These are rural roads are not as well maintained as residential roads of Edinburgh. You must, therefore, expect to deal with hazards that poor road maintenance brings along with it, such as potholes.

High-speed a roads such as the A720 is also likely to be part of the practical driving test.

Pass Rate at Edinburgh Driving Test Centre

Both test centres in Edinburgh have very similar pass rates, there’s only a difference of 1%. Edinburgh Currie conducts around 7000 driving tests yearly, from this number, around 3400 of them pass. Giving the test centre a pass rate of 49%. In comparison, Musselburgh centre has around 6000 candidates attempting their driving test here yearly. Out of which 2800 of them are passed by the examiners. Giving a pass rate of 48%.

The similarity in pass rates could be due to the fact that they are in very similar areas, and both test centre routes would most likely intersect. Meaning it doesn’t really matter which driving test centre you choose.

Driving Test Cancellations Edinburgh

There are two practical test centres in Edinburgh and both are extremely busy with a large waiting list of over two months. Driving instructors normally advise their pupils to book their driving test a couple of months earlier. Many learner drivers tend to worry about this, thinking that they may not be prepared for the test in time. However, this should be seen as a problem. One week before your practical driving test, you can always change the date to a later one. The DVSA will not charge you any extra to change a driving test date. As a matter of fact, you can change your driving test date six times the government’s official website, GOV.UK.
