There are many rural country roads which surround the Oban driving test centre. These difficult roads, which form part of the driving test route, can be challenging many learner drivers. They often have high speeds, sharp bends, potholes and uneven road surface. The driving examiner will expect you to make progress on these roads if conditions allow it. It is important learner driver gets plenty of practice so they are able to assess the speed required in order to safely approach the bends.

These roads will often lead into small villages such as Glencruitten, Gavavan and Soroba. Many learner drivers fail driving test in these small villages. This is mainly because after coming off the fast flowing country roads, they find it difficult to speed that is required for the narrow village roads. It is essential that you make use of the speedometer when there is a large drop in speed.

Somewhere along the driving test, the examiner will request that you pull up safely on the left. The driving examiner will place satnav on of your vehicle and request but directions given by the equipment. It is not always compulsory as 20 % of test candidates will be required to follow directions using road signs. During this section of the test will usually find yourself on high-speed roads such as the A85.

Oban – Reversing

The driving test candidate required to carry out one reverse manoeuvre out of a possible four. The choice of manoeuvre will belong solely to the examiner. You may request the Parallel Park exercise or the stop on the right side of the road exercise on a public road. Alternatively, the bay park exercise may be requested at a supermarket car park.
