Crewe Test Centre

Located on the corner of Nile Street, in the middle of a quiet residential area, Crewe test centre is small in size. With a noticeable sign above the door, however, you don’t have to worry about missing it! If you’re one of the many learners in Crewe taking your driving test here, you should try to get to know it a bit better.

How To Get There

Crewe test centre can be found just off the A534, making it highly accessible for all learners. Its proximity to the centre of Crewe itself also makes it an ideal choice for learners who live in the town, as well as in the nearby area. Of course, if you’re still uncertain, we’d advise you to use a sat nav to find your way. Please note that the centre does not provide parking spaces, so you’ll have to park up on one of the nearby residential roads.

A Bit More About Crewe

Crewe test centre is ideally located to offer a range of road features, and a mix of busy urban areas and quieter residential roads. The area closest to the centre is mostly residential, with the nearby Westminster Street Park. As you move out of the area, however, it gets steadily more busy—here, you’re likely to encounter A roads such as the A5078 and A534.

What To Expect On The Day

After hours of driving lessons, your test date is finally upon you. Talk about nerve-wracking. If your confidence isn’t quite where you hoped it would be, we’d advise you to read up on our top six ways to relax before your driving test.

Before you jet out of the front door on your big day, there’s one important question you need to ask yourself: do you have your provisional licence? If the answer’s no, you can wave goodbye to taking your test. You need to have your provisional licence with you to take the driving test, otherwise you will be turned around, so double-check you’ve got it before you leave. Additionally, you’ll want to get to the test centre 10 minutes before your test is due to start.

Your driving test will consist of:

– An eyesight test, where you’ll need to read a number plate from a distance of 20 metres
– Two “show me, tell me” questions covering vehicle safety and maintenance
– Twenty minutes of general driving, where you’ll be guided by the examiner, and will also need to perform one of the following manoeuvres:
Parallel parking
Bay parking
Pulling up on the right
– Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

Once you get back to the test centre and park your car, the test will officially end. The examiner will then walk you through the feedback sheet and list any driving test faults, whether they are minors or majors, that you may have accumulated. If you fail, keep hold of this sheet as it can be used to help you figure out which areas you need to improve on for your next test attempt. If you pass, you’ll also be handed a test pass certificate.

But What If I Fail?

Like any other test you take in life, if all doesn’t go according to plan with your driving test and you end up failing, it’s as simple as trying again. Of course, we don’t recommend just heading back in without any preparation. Instead, take some time to improve on the areas in which you picked up the most faults in. The best way to do this is by taking a refresher course with an instructor. They’ll be able to give you pointers to ensure you don’t trip up on them again.
