For all students on our intensive courses, our lessons are normally taken over a short period of time and we will guarantee a test at the end of the course. The test is paid for by the candidate and it will be the driving school who will solicit an earlier test date for you.
The test will be arranged at a date agreed between the school, yourself and your instructor. We use a number of test centres; for example Barking, Goodmayes, Wanstead, Chingford, Loughton, Tilbury, Hither Green, Sevenoaks, Belvedere etc.
As the school will search for a test date, we cannot guarantee exactly at which centre tests will become available. All test areas should be similar in design to give each candidate a fair chance, so that it is not easier to pass your test at one particular centre rather than another. Although your instructor may take you to a test area, your test will not necessarily be at that centre. The purpose of this is to make you familiar with how test routes in general are laid out at most test centres.
Please take into account the fact that you may go to Barking or Goodmayes or Wanstead as part of your training, we cannot guarantee your test will be conducted at that centre, although it will certainly help to familiarise you with the format of the driving test and how it is conducted.
Remember, the art of being a successful driver and passing your driving test is to read the road as it presents itself to you, and not to try and remember a pre-planned route.
