    Practical Test Centres Near Balham

    All our driving courses are designed to give our learner drivers the very best start to life on the road.


    Balham has no test centre itself. So taking your practical test will require you to travel to another test centre near the town such as Croydon.


    Our main goal with every intensive course is to make sure you’re test standard and familiar with the area before taking your test. To know more about the different test centres, please consider browsing through our practical test centres index page t practical test centres index page.

    Theory Test Centres Near Balham

    Balham does not have its own test centre, this will require a trip to the nearby test centre that would be situated in Croydon. You cannot book a practical until you’ve passed the theory test, that’s why taking a theory test is very important.


    With all our driving courses in Balham, we don’t mind if you have not passed your theory yet. We like to take on learners who have not got their theory as we believe it’s just as important as the practical test.

    Frequently Asked Questions...

    I struggle with my theory because I am dyslexic. Can you help?

    We have a 12-hour online course that will help you pass your driving theory test. It has been designed for people who prefer to learn by watching videos and who may take the test in audio.

    Is home pickup provided?

    Yes, home pickup is provided with all courses. If you're based in a rural area, it's best to give us a call or drop us an email to see if home pickup is possible!

    Should I book early?

    Booking early is always better as you will have more choice of dates. The earlier you book, the more time you'll have to pass your theory & for us to secure you a good practical test date!

    Can I pass my theory with you?

    Absolutely! If you need to include & do your theory as part of your intensive course, then we can add this to your booking.

    Do you allow breaks in your courses?

    Yes, breaks will be given roughly at the halfway point of training sessions. If you prefer to not have any breaks, then we can make a note of this upon your booking with us!
