The town is mostly made up of residential areas with winding roads that make it generally easier to naviagte.

If test dates are experiencing a long wait, we will use a cancellation test checker service to find you an earlier test date.

    Taking A Driving Test Near Prestwich

    As Prestwich does not have a local driving test centre, you will complete the majority of your course in Prestwich to become confident in controlling the vehicle and to practice on junctions, like emerging from t-junctions & roundabouts. As Prestwich is situated in the middle of two test centres, you may want to try driving in either Bury or Cheetham Hill before you commit to a local test centre.


    Once your test has been booked at a test centre, you will go to the areas where your test is being taken to learn the local roads and junctions. Your driving instructor in Prestwich will know of all the “problem” areas where learners are likely to fail their test and advise you on what you should and not do.


    The test is compromised of many sections, like the show me tell me at the beginning, indapendent driving in the middle of the test and then a manoeuvre which could either be a parrel park, bay park manouvre or pulling up on the right hand side of the road.
