Driving Test Springwood NSW

The Driving Test Springwood NSW is conducted from the Services NSW offices. Located at shop 14, 7-9 Raymond Road Springwood you can book your driving test online or in person. When you book your driving test you will be told that you need to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. You will also be given a list of things you will need to bring for the driving test. Make sure you have all the required paperwork. If you do not have the correct paperwork you may be unable to do the driving test. This will result in you having to book another driving test and paying another booking fee.

Over the years I have seen many people arrive ill prepared for the driving test. They do not bring the necessary paperwork or it is not filled in properly. Even worse students arrive for the test without knowing what is in the test or how to pass the test. The main reason people fail  is because they have not prepared for the test.

Your test is allocated to last 45 minutes in Springwood and most driving tests are completed within this time. As Springwood does not have as much traffic as other test locations it is unusual for driving tests to run late. When you hand in your paperwork the examiner will check it and make sure you have completed your paperwork properly. Then the examiner will check that your car is registered and ready for the test. This includes a physical assessment of the car including tyres, blinkers, body work and windows.

The best way to prepare for the driving test is with a learn to drive Driving Lesson Springwood. Our local driving instructors specialise in the Springwood area.

All examiners use the same driving test score sheet to mark the driving test. Therefore you will be marked on the same criteria as any other driving test location. The difference is that the roads you will be driving on in the mountains are narrower than other locations. As such your road position will have to reflect the conditions you are driving in. Therefore you will need to be familiar with driving on narrow country roads.

In addition to the width of the roads you will be required to merge onto and off the main highway that crosses the Blue Mountains. This means you will be tested on particular aspects of driving that is not common in other test locations. Whilst this is not a problem for drivers who are familiar with driving in the mountains, it is different to the driving conditions found in other locations.

Therefore you should make sure you know how to manoeuvre your car in a variety of test conditions that you will be tested on in Springwood. There is no point in turning up for the test if you do not know how to pass under the road conditions you will be tested on.

To learn how to pass first go you could book a lesson and learn from a driving instructor who specialises in the Springwood area.
