    Theory Test Centres Near Shildon

    Totton does not have its own theory test centre, this will require you to travel to the nearest test centre that would be situated in Northallerton.


    Booking a practical is impossible until you’ve passed your theory test, that’s why taking a theory test is very important.


    With all our intensive driving courses in Shildon, 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
