Borehamwood driving test centre successes

In the recent weeks, I've been having a lot of pupils taking their driving test at the dsa test centre in Borehamwood due to the shorter waiting times than Mill Hill and Hendon, with many candidates being able to book a driving test appointment within 4 to 6 weeks (one on the quickest/shortest driving test waiting times in the greater London area), and some are even finding cancellations with dates of less than 2 weeks.

A few things to note about the Borehamwood driving test centre.

The centre has 2 toilets (seperate men and women facilities).
There is step free acess to the waiting room, so it is ideal for motability driving test candidates.
The centre is located in premesis shared with the DVLA, as such the car park can be very busy, so be extra vigilant if you get the bay parking exercise. In particular pedestrians walking from the multi-story overflow car park area.
The test centre routes have a lot of mini roundabouts, so if you are attempting the practical assessment here, then you need to be confident dealing with these junctions. I sat on one test with a client, I think we dealt with a least 15 of these, many of them in quick succession of each other.
Be also on the look out for the humped pedestrian crossings in the town centre.

One thing that I've experienced is that Borehamwood test centre has a high pass rate for my pupils with 4 out of the 6 that went there this year passing.
A special mention goes to Maneo who had a foreign international licence from Lethoso, took intensive driving lessons with me to get to the DSA standard, and passed there last week on the 2nd attempt. A pass was only narrowly missed the first time round because of nerves after a mistake early in the test which then escalated to missing the national speed limit on a country road, failing for driving too slow.

If you want to take your driving test in Borehamwood and need an instructor, live in the WD6 area and want some quality manual driving lessons or want a mock practical assessment, then why not give me a call on 07956233032.

If you have booked a driving test at Borehamwood, the following DSA instructor test route tutorial video might be of use in your preparation, especially since it covers some of the tricky places that candidates have failed on previously.

July 2014 Update: More success stories in Borehamwood, with the latest candidate to pass the driving test being a client of mine from Kingsbury who had an expired European car licence taking a semi intensive crash course of 10 lesson hours to get rid of some old bad driving habits and reach the required dsa standard, passing on the 8th of the month with 5 errors on the DL25 examiner report sheet, so if you have a test booked in Borehamwood without an ADI and need some pre-test advice or refresher tuition/mock assessment test around the WD6 routes, then why not get in touch with me today.
