Southend – Various Road Systems

A vast amount of skills will be required in order for you to pass your driving test at the Southend on Sea driving test centre. Throughout the drive, you will experience many different road types and traffic conditions. This will include busy areas and dual carriageways such as the A127 dual carriageway.

Southend – Various Junctions

The driving examiner at Southend-on-Sea will expect you to be able to safely but confidently deal with crossroads, various junctions and roundabouts. These roundabouts will often include small mini-roundabouts in the residential areas of Southend to large multilane roundabouts leading onto dual carriageways such as the A127.

Southend – Residential Roads

The driving test route will also feature a fair amount of driving on the quiet residential areas. These roads seem very easy but can instantly become challenging. This is often due to parked vehicles on both sides combined with oncoming vehicles. The learner driver will be expected to check the rear-view mirror and ease off the accelerator at the first sight of an oncoming vehicle. Of the narrator will slow the vehicle down and give the learner the opportunity to decide whether to stop or to proceed.

Southend – Parking

These quiet residential roads are often used for the reverse manoeuvers. The driving examiner will have a choice out of four manoeuvers. However, only one will be requested. The examiner may request one of the two bay park manoeuvers which are usually carried out either at the driving test centre car park or at a supermarket car park. Alternatively, the examiner may request the parallel Park exercise or even the stopping on the right side of the road exercise. This is a new exercise and was introduced in December 2017.
