Practical Driving Test Centres in Scarborough

The east of North Yorkshire has plenty of test centres for learners to choose from, with practical test centres available in Scarborough, Whitby and Malton. Don’t worry if these seem a little far from home for you—PassMeFast offers home and workplace pickups and dropoffs, meaning getting to and from your lessons and tests is a breeze!

Theory Test Centres in Scarborough

Taking your theory test is a vital step towards getting your licence. Getting one pass in the bag often gives learners a great confidence boost before taking their practical—and, after all, you can’t take your practical without having already passed your theory. Most learners here will be taking their test at the Scarborough theory test centre; other options include Driffield and York. For advice on the theory test, practical test, and much more, check out our resources.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Think the theory test is easy? Think again. In recent years, the test has become harder, with the addition of case studies, an updated question bank, and new hazard perception clips. You certainly can't count on a guaranteed pass! That's why it's important to get revising early—doing so will make sure you get your theory test passed in good time to take your practical. If you'd like us to arrange your theory test for you, just add it onto your course when making your booking.

Driving Around Scarborough

When you book a course with PassMeFast, you’ll likely spend the majority of your lesson hours in the area surrounding the test centre where you’ll be taking your practical test. This means that your driving experience will vary depending on your location.

If you’re taking your test in Scarborough, you’ll be learning close to the Seamer train station and the A64 road, as well as more residential areas. The A64 will also feature for learners at Malton test centre, whilst rural roads will feature on tests here too. A similarly tricky combination of road types and junctions will feature at Whitby test centre.
