If you are practising for your test then test routes are very important. They allow you to get comfortable with the roads that you are likely to be driving on your test.
The video below shows a possible test route from the Falkirk/Grangemouth test centre.
The DVSA used to provide all possible test routes on their website. They have stopped doing this now which makes it difficult to know possible routes. This route is one which was on their website before and has likely not been changed.
How does this Falkirk/Grangemouth test route help me?

Will I be taken this route on my test?
