Practical Driving Test Centres in Darlington

Once your driving lessons come to an end, the practical test is all that stands between you and a lifetime of driving freedom. This is a pretty big deal, so it’s good to know where it’s going to take place. In this area, the Darlington driving test centre will suit most learners best, with alternatives found in Hartlepool, Middlesbrough and Durham.

Theory Test Centres in Darlington

Compared to the practical, the theory test will require you to travel a little further. Thankfully, it shouldn’t be too much of a trek for most learners. The closest centre in Northallerton is only around 10 minutes away by rail, while alternatives in Middlesbrough and Newcastle will take you around 25 minutes to get to.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

PassMeFast is here to take the hassle out of booking your tests. So, if you still need to make a theory test appointment, add it onto your course when you book in, and we’ll make the arrangements for you.

Driving Around Darlington

While taking your driving lessons in Darlington, you’ll see how the roads in your local area are more complex than you may have expected. In some parts of town, you’ll find yourself on narrow, car-lined residential streets—something that will require a good knowledge of priority rules. Meanwhile, in other areas, things will speed up as you take to A roads, and the presence of the M1 nearby means you’ll even be able to take motorway lessons (though this won’t appear on your test).

Map showing Darlington within County Durham

All of this will be good practice, as your driving test route will cover the roads in and around Darlington. That’s why your instructor will make sure you’re familiar with all of the trickiest road features. It might take a little getting used to, but it’ll mean that you’ll be well prepared by the time you put yourself under an examiner’s beady eye.
