Practical Driving Test Centres in Lancaster

At the end of your lessons, it’s time to take your practical test. On your test route, you’ll have to display a sound knowledge of how to react to hazards, a considerate attitude towards your fellow road users, and a wide range of driving skills. With your PassMeFast course behind you, however, you should have no problem passing your test. In the Lancaster area, you’re most likely to head to the Heysham driving test centre; other options are Blackpool or Preston.

Theory Test Centres in Lancaster

Of course, while the majority of a learner’s attention is on their lessons and practical test, the theory test should definitely not be neglected. In fact, you won’t even be able to book a practical test until you’ve passed your theory test, so be sure to do this in good time. For learners in Lancaster, the nearest theory test centre can be found in Kendal, with alternative options in Blackpool and Preston.

Driving Around Lancaster

To give learners a great chance of passing their test, lessons are often spent in the area surrounding the test centre where your practical test is due to take place. This helps you to familiarise yourself with the area, and become aware of its particularities and hazards. For most learners in the Lancaster area, this means you’ll be taking some lessons in the Heysham area—though with home and workplace pickups on offer, you won’t have to worry about getting there!

Tricky areas likely to trip up learners in this area are the roundabout at the junction of the A589 and A683, as well as hazards that are wont to crop up in rural areas, such as the appearance of tractors and pedestrians walking along the road. However, during your lessons, you’ll learn the right way to approach and respond to these hazards, becoming a confident driver with a great chance of passing first time.
