If you thought all test centres were based out of business parks or office buildings, Northwich test centre will make you think again. This test centre is actually found in a converted semi-detached house in a residential part of Northwich, giving it a rather different feel than most other centres. However, once you're out on the roads, you'll experience a test every bit as rigorous as those found elsewhere in the country. Read on for directionspass ratestest routes and much more about the Northwich practical test centre.

How To Get There

Northwich test centre is only half a mile from the town's main commercial area—and, as such, it's easily accessible for those living nearby, especially given its closeness to the A533 and A559. If you've not yet had the opportunity to look around Northwich just yet, use these directions and you’ll be able to find the centre without a hitch.

A Bit More About Northwich

Northwich test centre's location wasn't chosen by accident—it was picked due to its proximity to a wide range of road features and conditions. The residential estate it's located in is ideal for manoeuvres and moving around parked vehicles, whilst the A533 puts gear changes and speed awareness to the test. If you’d like to get to know Northwich on a more magnified level, simply check out the following resources...

Fortunately, Northwich isn’t the only test centre you can head to. There are plenty of Cheshire test centres—the closest of which are Warrington and Macclesfield.

What To Expect On The Day

Like to prepare for things in advance? That’s good—we do too! Luckily, once you’ve finished your driving lessons, there’s not much you have to worry about (beyond the practical test). All you've got to do on the day is arrive 10 minutes early and bring your provisional. The test will then unfold as follows:

  • An eyesight test, where you’ll need to read a number plate from a distance of 20 metres
  • Two “show me, tell me” questions covering vehicle safety and maintenance
  • Twenty minutes of general driving, where you’ll be guided by the examiner, and will also need to perform one of the following manoeuvres:
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

Don’t like waiting for test results? You’re in luck—you’ll get them as soon as you finish. The examiner will tell you their verdict and give you a feedback sheet, with any driving test faults you might have made. If you pass your test, you’ll get your test pass certificate and you’ll get the chance to send off for your new licence.

But What If I Fail?

We don’t want to worry learners waiting to take their test, but unfortunately failure is always a possibility. Some learners pass first time and others need a few tries to get it just right. Fortunately, it’s simple enough to go in for another practical. In fact, PassMeFast can get you sorted in no time at all—with additional tuition, if necessary.
