    Theory Test Centres Near Uppermill

    Passing your theory test is the first step in everyone’s learning journey. Without it, taking a practical test is impossible. We put as much emphasis on the theory as we do the practical. Typically, a learner will purchase a theory guide or download a theory app and that would be enough. But sometimes it won’t suffice and it can lead to not passing the theory test in any desirable time frames.


    So as part of all our intensive courses in Uppermill, learners like yourself will be able to access our free theory course included with all bookings. It’s a video-based theory course to help you become more confident with the theory test!


    Uppermill does not have a theory test centre itself. The nearest theory test centre would be situated in Huddersfield.

    Frequently Asked Questions...

    Are theory training courses available at your driving school?

    Yes. We actually have our very own online theory training course that we guarantee to help every learner to pass the first time. This is FREE to all course candidates or can be purchased separately for a small fee.

    When is the best time to start the course?

    We may be able to offer an earlier start date on some occasions but we can advise you to start the course in no less than 4 weeks. We also advise a month if you have not got your theory so we can have enough time to plan everything from passing your theory test and we can source a test date for you.

    How do your courses run?

    We typically start on a Monday and run through towards the test day. Each course is designed to cater to flexibility and is unique to each individual. Training sessions can be between 3-6 hours daily!

    Absolutely. Our driving instructor will accompany you to your driving test centre and help you to be familiar with the roads upon traveling to the centre.
