Practical Driving Test Centres in Peterborough

As Peterborough is the largest town in Cambridgeshire, it’s easy to see why the DVSA would choose to open a test centre here. Indeed, those looking to take their practical test locally need only drive a couple of miles east from the heart of town towards the Peterborough driving test centre. The only other alternative in the county is Cambridge Brookmount Court test centre some 40 miles to the south, with Kettering and Wellingborough serving as backups closer to Peterborough.

Theory Test Centres in Peterborough

Though some learners fret over theory test pass rates varying by area, the reality is that the test is exactly the same no matter where you take it—so it’s smart to do so close to home. In this area, you won’t need to travel far at all: simply pop over to the Peterborough theory test centre. Elsewhere in Cambridgeshire, you can also take your test in Cambridge or Ely.

Map showing Peterborough within Cambridgeshire

It’s no secret that the DVSA challenges candidates by incorporating diverse road types into the driving test. Within just a short drive of the local test centre, you’ll come across a bustling industrial estate, narrow residential streets, local shopping parades, major roundabouts, dual carriageways, and even a number of car parks where you’ll be able to complete your manoeuvres. Phew! If you manage to keep your cool with all of that going on, though, then you’ll be more than ready to take your test.
