Gloucester Driving Test Centre is situated within busy city roads and close to rural roads. The test examiner is likely to select both road types during the driving test. The examiner will be testing your ability at junctions of varied types, roundabouts and crossroads. Busy ‘A’ roads such as the A38 are likely. The rural types of roads often represent a challenge to many drivers, not only learners due to the potential high speeds and sharp corners. Our country road driving tutorial provides advice on how to safely use these road types. Often in the test, small residential roads are selected due to being hazardous for narrow width constraints and meeting oncoming traffic. See passing parked cars for a insight on using these particular types of roads. A single driving test manoeuvre and a 1-out-of-3 possibility of the emergency stop procedure being requested. The Gloucester driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.


Always choose your driving test booking time carefully. Choosing a time that clashes with peak traffic rush hour may see you sitting in traffic more, but will also put you in direct contact with stressed drivers trying to get home. To book your practical test, you have two options: Book a driving test by phone. The book a driving test section contains the DVSA telephone numbers for booking a practical driving test at Gloucester Driving Test Centre by phone. This telephone number directs you to an automated test booking line, although if you browse the option you can talk to a assistant. Book your driving test online Often the preferable method to book a driving test at Gloucester Driving Test Centre is via the internet.

The United Kingdom driving test is a test which drivers must pass to obtain a driving licence. Different tests are available for users of different vehicles, from car drivers, to motorcyclists and HGV drivers.

The test is separated into three distinct parts: the theory test, hazard perception test and practical test.

It is necessary to pass all three parts, theory, hazard perception and practical before a full driving licence is granted.


Some sites will make a charge for booking your test!

There is absolutely no need to pay a test booking fee!

Make sure you use the official DVSA booking site!

The Theory Test

The THEORY TEST is a computer based multiple choice exam, it is very simple to understand and needs no previous computer experience..

The HAZARD PERCEPTION part of the test is also computer based and is designed to test your reaction to developing situations. This is something that you will learn starting with your 1st practical lesson.

If you have access to a computer, there are a number of excellent software programmes available to prepare for both tests.

Full guidance and support will be given in conjunction with your practical driving lessons.

The nearest test centre for this area is Plymouth and the current test fee is £31.00

What Is The Theory Test?

The Theory test consists of two parts:

1) 50 Multiple Choice Questions

2) Hazard Perception Test comprising 14 video clips, each clip lasting around a minute. You will find a total of 15 hazards.

You have to pass both multiple choice and hazard perception parts at the same test appointment to attain an overall pass.

Should you pass one part, but fail the other, you will need to book another appointment to take both elements of the test again.

The test is completed under exam conditions in a dedicated Theory Test centre entirely on a touch screen computer (you have the choice of utilizing a mouse should you prefer!). Headphones will have to be used throughout the entire test.

A voiceover may be requested where the questions and answers are automatically read out to help individuals with reading difficulties, or for whom English is not their first language.

Who has to take a Theory Test?

If you are learner driver you have to take and pass your theory test before you book your practical test. If you currently have a driving licence you might not have to take another theory test in order to start driving a different vehicle...

UK Licence Holders - you have to take a theory test if you want a licence for a new group of vehicle, for example, for those who have a car licence and you also want a motorcycle licence you will have to take a theory test. If, however, you would like to upgrade within a vehicle category you will not normally have to take a theory test. For instance, for those who have a full automatic car licence and you also want a manual car licence you won’t have to take a theory test. It’s your responsibility to ensure you possess the correct licence for the vehicle you are driving.

Foreign Licence Holders:

EEA Countries - In the event you hold a valid Community licence and you are simply visiting the United Kingdom, you can drive any vehicle so long as your licence remains valid. The correct full entitlement for the vehicle you intend to drive must be shown on your licence.

Non EEA Countries - Should you hold a full driving licence issued outside the EEA it might be possible to change it for an equivalent British licence. You need to contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to discover if you are able to exchange your foreign licence.

In the event you cannot exchange your foreign licence you will need to apply for a British provisional licence and take a theory and practical test.
