Gairloch car driving theory test centre

Gairloch learners don’t have to travel far to take their driving tests. There’s a practical test centre right next to the school. The original Gairlock test centre can be found at Mihol road. Due to the pandemia, however, this test center has been shut down and there is a temporary location set up at Gale centre on the A832.

Gairloch test center covers every aspect of learning to drive. You'll be taught how to do the theory part of the test, then practice taking the practical test. There are also tips on improving your chances of passing the test.

A Bit More About Gairloch

Driving tests are usually done in towns or cities. Your driving test route starts in Gairloch, then goes to Strath and Smithstown before returning back to Gairloch. You may pass by some schools along the way.

You're going to drive around the A832. You'll probably go by Loch Tollaidh and Poolewe. Be very careful here because there are many bends and sharp corners. You should also be aware of the speed limit.

What If I Can't Go To Gairloch?

You should choose Ullapool as your test centre because it's the closest location to you.

What To Expect On The Day

Congratulations! You've passed your driving test! You don't have to prepare anything else before taking the exam. Just get there 10 minutes early and park up. Your examiner will check your provisional, then ask you to sign a paper.

Your driving test will start with an eyesight test. You'll need to read a car number plate from a distance. Then you'll do two show-me/tell-me questions about vehicle safety and maintenance. Finally, you'll drive around the parking lot for twenty minutes. During this time, your examiner will guide you. You'll also need to perform one out of these three manoeuvres: parallel park, reverse into a space, or turn right onto a road.

You should pull into the bay parking lot. There are signs directing you to the correct location. When you arrive, you will be directed to park your car.
