    Practical Test Centres Near Newtown

    Our primary objective is to guide learners to reach test standard proficiency and ensure they are well-acquainted with the area before undertaking their driving test.


    In Newtown, the practical test centre is conveniently located within the town itself, eliminating the need for extensive travel to other locations. However, should learners prefer to take their test at a different centre, such as the one in Bala, arrangements can be made accordingly. Our dedicated driving instructors will accompany learners to these centres prior to their test, providing them with the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the surroundings and feel confident on the day of their examination.

    Theory Test Centres Near Newtown

    Booking a practical test is impossible until you’ve passed your theory test. So we are giving importance to the theory as we do with the practical.


    Newtown does not have its own theory test centre, this will require you to travel to the nearby test centres if you plan to take your theory test. You may travel to the nearest test centre in your place that would be situated in Bala.
