How To Get There

Around 10 minutes from the centre of Hull itself, Hull test centre is located next to the River Hull and A1165. Learners certainly won't find it difficult to find this test centre. If you've not had the chance to look around Hull, just follow the directions here, and you'll get there just fine. 

A Bit More About Hull

The Hull area comes with a variety of challenges that will truly test how capable candidates are of becoming fully qualified drivers. From the easily-congestible area around the centre—due to the proximity of the University of Hull—to busy A roads like the A1079 and A1165. If you’re looking to get to know the Hull area better, we’ve got all the relevant resources you might need below...

Hull Test Route

The DVSA no longer publishes test routes, so you won't be able to get your hands on an exact, up-to-date Hull test route. That being said, if you're learning with a local instructor, you won't be going into your practical blind. Your instructor will have you honing your skills on the local roundabouts, dual carriageways and much more. By the time your practical rolls on by, you'll most likely be familiar with most—if not all—of the roads that crop up on your route. If you'd like a better idea of what to expect, check out videos of Hull test routes on YouTube. 

Hull Test Pass Rates

Are you a fan of statistics? You might find it interesting to hear that the national average pass rate for the UK is 47%. If you’re a learner driver in Yorkshire and the Humber, however, you’ve got a 47.1% chance of passing your practical. If you’re looking for something more specific, you can look at driving test pass rates by area. Alternatively, check out Hull’s pass rate from the last five years below...

2013-14 2014-15 2015-16 2016-17 2017-18
48.2% 56.7% 47.8% 48.2% 48%


While you might not be too impressed by Hull’s pass rates, you should bear in mind that they’re still above the national average. It’s not all down to specific numbers however—the outcome of your practical is also affected by your personal ability and effort.

What If I Can't Go To Hull?

If you want to stick to East Yorkshire, you can head to Bridlington test centre. Alternatively, you can head into North Yorkshire with York.

What To Expect On The Day

Your practical test will finally follow once you’ve completed your driving lessons. Beyond your lessons, there’s not much else you can do in preparation for your test except to get to the centre 10 minutes early, with your provisional. The layout of the practical will be 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:
    • Parallel parking
    • Bay parking
    • Pulling up on the right
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

Once you get back to the centre, you’ll be told your result. The examiner will also hand you a feedback sheet, which will list any faults you might have accumulated along the way. If you're successful, you'll also be given a test pass certificate and the chance to send off for your new full licence. 

But What If I Fail?

If you do end up failing, you can use the feedback given to you by your examiner to help improve your skills for the next time you take your test. Once you're ready to get back behind the wheel, you can get PassMeFast to book you a new fast-track test. You can even take refresher course if you need additional tuition.
