Chorley Test Centre

Hi everyone,
Wonder if anybody can help me, I have a pupil who has decided to take his test at Chorley Test Centre in Lancashire.
The problem I have is I have never done a test there before so I went to check it out and the car park looks tight/awkward, my question is will the examiners do the Bay Park manoeuvre there and if so has anybody got any tips.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Andy

Re: Chorley Test Centre

Hi Andy
Ive only done a few tests in Chorley and havent had a bay park. As you say the test centre car park is small but theres a possibility that the last car setting off on test could get a right bay park at the start of the test though havent seen this myself, other than that ive no idea where the bay park could be carried out. Some instructors seem to practise bay parking on nearby Morissons supermarket car park. I will try and find out as I currently have a pupil who will be taking her test in Chorley too.

The main hazards around Chorley are lots of roundabouts including the dual carriageway in the centre,(must have had nearly 20 RAB on one test) the one way street in the centre and lots of hills and hillstarts.

Re: Chorley Test Centre

Slight exaggeration by Rob I think.   Just checked with a colleague and  to answer the OP yes they do bay park at Chorley.  It's very awkward, made even worse because the examiners cars take up 3 out of the 8 spaces. 

If you type Rossall Road chorley into google street maps it will show you the TC car park, and two examiners cars parked in forwards!

Re: Chorley Test Centre

Hi RM
It might not be an exageration, there is one particular route in Darwen with 21 including minis.

Every route at Darwen has a minimum of 6.
