    Practical Test Centres Near Darlaston

    Darlaston has no local test centre itself. So taking your driving test will require you to travel to other places/towns. If you’re living outside the town, you can travel to Dudley or Wolverhampton test centres to take your test. Although these are far from your home town, all our driving instructors will take you to your practical test at these centres!


    All our intensive courses will help you become test standard and be familiar with the area prior to taking your test! For more information on different test centres, please consider browsing through our ractical test centres index page.

    Theory Test Centres Near Darlaston

    Darlaston does not have its own theory test centre, this will require you to travel to the nearest test centre when you take your test. The nearest centre would be situated in Dudley. You cannot book a practical until you’ve passed the theory test, that’s why taking a theory test is very important.


    At LPOD Academy, 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.


    If you don’t pass the first time, you will be given the free retest featured in all our driving courses above 20 hours.
