    Practical Test Centres Near Wigan

    When taking your driving test, Wigan has no test centre and it will require you to travel to other nearby test centres such as St Helens and Bolton. Although they are far from Wigan, your instructor will take you to these places when it comes to your test.

    When doing your intensive course, the goal isn’t solely focusing on the test, the aim is to make you a safe and confident driver and the test is there to only test your ability.

    Theory Test Centres Near Wigan

    Wigan has its own theory test centre, this will prove convenient if you live here. Taking a theory test is very important as you cannot book a practical until it has been passed.

    With all our courses, 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.


    All driving courses above 20 hours (if included) will feature a free retest if you don’t pass first time!
