    Practical Test Centres Near Barkingside

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


    Barkingside has no test centre itself. So taking your practical test will require you to travel to other towns such as Sidcup and Barking.


    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.

    Theory Test Centres Near Barkingside

    With all our driving courses above 20 hours, we will feature a free retest to make sure there is nothing to worry about if you don’t pass your driving the first time.


    Booking a practical is impossible until you’ve passed the theory test, that’s why taking the theory test is very important. With all our driving courses in Barkingside, 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.


    Barkingside does not have its own theory test centre, this will require you to travel to the nearby test centre that would be situated in Sidcup.
