Located in Bell Business Park with other local businesses, Aylesbury test centre can be found on Smeaton Close off Brunel Road.

Learners heading to the test centre from Aylesbury will need to follow the A41 onto Bicester Road before turning to Brunel Road to get to Bell Business Park. If you’re not so closely located, you can follow the A41 or A418 to get there. Not entirely familiar with the local roads? Just use these directions with your sat nav!
The DVSA take great care when choosing the location of a test centre. Aylesbury test centre, for example, was placed in an area that gives examiners plenty of challenging road types and traffic systems to test learners on. If you’re taking your practical here, be prepared for potential congestion around the business park during rush hour, not to mention two roundabouts as you head down Coldharbour Way. You’ll also have to combat busy A roads like the A418 and A41, before moving into quieter residential areas containing various local schools.

Trying to get your hands on the Aylesbury test route so that you can memorise it before your test? Unfortunately, the DVSA no longer publishes its routes—they want to know that candidates are skilled drivers, as opposed to simply being good at memorisation. It doesn’t have to be a complete mystery, however, as you can watch videos of Aylesbury test routes on YouTube. Alternatively, you can download some of our sample Aylesbury driving test routes. You’ll also get some firsthand experience with these roads throughout your lessons, so you shouldn’t worry too much.
One of the most popular topics of interest for learner drivers is driving test pass rates. Understandably, learners want to be able to figure out how they’ll do based off of how other learners have fared in the past. If you’re the same, you’ve certainly come to the right place—we love statistics! For starters, the current national average pass rate rests at 45.9%. If you’re looking for something more specific, have a gander at our driving test pass rates by county, or have a look at our table below to see how Aylesbury learners have gotten on in recent years.
Learners taking the plunge at this test centre certainly can’t turn their noses up at Aylesbury’s recent pass rates—they’re above the national average. Whilst this is nice news, it’s important that you don’t let it go to your head. Pass rates won’t increase your chances of passing—it’s how you drive on the day, not how other learners have fared, that will determine whether you pass or not.
In what seems like the blink of an eye, you’ll be heading to Aylesbury test centre to take your driving test. Though you might not feel ready, you should remember that your instructor will only let you take the test if they feel like you’re up to it. Before you leave for your practical, make sure you remember to bring your provisional licence—if you forget it, your test will be cancelled.
Candidates are also advised to get to the test centre 10 minutes before their test is due to start—don’t worry, your instructor will be in charge of the timing!
Your test will then consist of:
Once you’re back at Aylesbury test centre, you can finally let out a sigh of relief—you’re all done and dusted! You’ll have to wait a few minutes for the examiner to tot up your driving test faults (if you received any), before getting your result. You will either be given a physical feedback sheet or have your results sent to you by email through the driving test app.
We’re not going to lie to you: failure is always a possibility for learner drivers when it comes to the practical test. As demoralising as it can be, it’s important that you don’t let it get you down for too long. Less than half of learners in the UK pass first time, so you’re not exactly unique if you aren’t successful on your first attempt. So, get back behind the wheel, take a few extra lessons with your instructor and ace the test the next time around!
