I just did an initial driving lesson around the Glen Innes Driver Test Site today and planned out some pre test routes. These are the common errors /faults found around the GI driver testing site during the lesson.
The closest high speed zones are Pakuranga Highway and Road. Speed limited vary from 60km to 80km.
40km - School Zone (during pickup /drop off times)
20km - School Bus (with kids around it)
30km - Post Road works sign (must slow down)
2 Seconds - Normal Conditions
4 Seconds - Wet /High speed /busy traffic
This is a break down of what to except at each test site. It all depends on your driving skill. What you feel more conformable doing.
New simulated driving test routes have been updated for 2016 at the following locations:
Contact us to arrange a simulated test before your actual driving test.
We have heard Highbook VTNZ will be covering the following areas.
The Full Driving Test Route 1 will be around the Burswood Area and Route 2 will be just around the Industrial area around Highbrook and towards ANZ Business Hub Area
The Restricted Test will form a circle starting from Highbook Industrial area where you will need to parallel park and then moving in a circle towards Burswood and then onto Ti Rakau Drive for lane changing / merging.
Hunting Park has narrow roads and roundabouts for vehicle positioning and passing parked cars.
Te Irirangi Drive - High Speed Zone 80km for speed control and lane changing.
Smales and Allens Road for speed control and searching
We will have more information from March 2016
120 Sunnybrae Road Glenfield
This is a new driving test center/location (January 2016) I just heard about it a few days ago.
After a week or so I should have actual test routes for the full and restricted tests.
I recommend focusing on the following:
In most cases the Full Driving Test Routes is a similar to part 1 of the Restricted Driving Test Route
The other routes take the Southern Motorway for the High Speed Zone. This route uses the South Eastern Hwy.
Entering the South Eastern Hwy at Carbine Rd and then exiting at Waipuna Road, looping around back to Carbine Rd and then turning right again into the South Eastern Hwy and exiting left at Great South Road
This route focuses on right turns into the flush median.
Right Turn into Atkinson from Portage Road.
Also try turning right from Albion Road into Atkinson Road.
I took one of my students around the Mt Wellington test area today. The map shows the areas we covered. I will have the actual test routes mapped my the end of this week.
Another lesson loop, the only thing this missing on this route is the right turns into the flush median, I'll re-post the route with the flush medians tomorrow. Covering the right turns from Portage Rd into Mt Wellington Hwy and Atkinson Ave into Albion Rd.
