    Practical Test Centres Near Pontypridd

    Pontypridd has no local test centre itself. So taking your driving test will require you to travel to other places/towns. You can travel to Cardiff or Bridgend to take your test. Although these are far from your hometown of Pontypridd, all our driving courses will include instructors who will take you to your practical test at these centres!


    We are gaming to 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 practical test centres index page.

    Theory Test Centres Near Pontypridd

    You cannot book a practical if you did not pass your theory test, that’s why taking a theory test is very important. As the town does not have its local test center, you can take your test if you travel to the nearest test centre that would be situated in Cardiff.


    With all our intensive driving courses in Pontypridd, 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, all driving courses above 20 hours will feature a free retest.
