Bromley (London)

Situated just off the A2212, Bromley test centre can be found near King’s Meadow Playing Fields. Not far from the centre of Bromley itself, the test centre is close to Burnt Ash Lane’s car park—so it tends to get slightly busy during rush hour. This isn’t the only thing you’ll need to watch out for here at the Bromley test centre, though. That’s why, if you’ve decided to test your driving mettle at this centre, we’d recommend getting to know more about it. You can do this by reading our essential test centre guide below. From directions to pass rates to test routes, we’ve got it all!

How To Get There

If you’re heading to Bromley test centre from the middle of town, it’s a straight route down the A2212. If you’re not so centrally located, simply follow roads like the A20  or A21. Don’t worry if you’re not entirely familiar with the local roads, though. All you’ve got to do is use these directions with your sat nav and you’ll get there just fine!

A Bit More About Bromley

The DVSA put plenty of time and effort into figuring out the best location for their test centres. Bromley test centre, for example, is in an area that provides driving examiners with a varied range of road types and traffic conditions. If you’re taking your test here, expect to face heavy traffic during rush hour on the A2212. The close proximity of residential areas will also provide a challenge during the busier times of day—particularly when driving through car-lined streets whilst facing oncoming traffic.

What If I Can’t Go To Bromley?

If you can’t head to Bromley test centre, or you’re on the lookout for a backup option, your closest options are West Wickham or Hither Green.

What To Expect On The Day

So, you’ve finally made it to the end of your driving course. Good for you! Though it might seem daunting, you’ve only got one more step to take before you get to pose with your full driving licence. Yep, that’s right. You’ve got to show off your newfound driving skills to the examiner in the practical test.

Before you head out on your big day, make sure you double check that you’ve got your provisional. You won’t be able to take the test without it, so it’s pretty darn important! You also need to make sure you get to Bromley test centre at least 10 minutes before your test is due to start.

The driving test will consist of:

  • 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

Your test route will eventually lead you back to Bromley test centre. Now you’ve only got to wait a few minutes before you get your result. The driving examiner will walk you through any driving test faults you made and let you know whether you’ve passed or failed. Regardless of the result, you’ll either get a physical feedback sheet or have your results sent to you by email with the driving test app.

But What If I Fail?

As you’d imagine, failing the driving test is not a pleasant experience. In fact, it can put some learners off from driving altogether. Instead of dwelling on the fact that you failed, however, you should use the experience as motivation to try again. If the stress got to you on the big day, then be sure to read our guide to getting rid of test day nerves or our top 10 tips to help you relax before your driving test. Alternatively, if you tripped up in a certain area, e.g., observations, take a refresher course to get back up to speed.
