How To Get There

Tottenham test centre is around 10 minutes from the centre of Edmonton, close to Tottenham Cemetery and in proximity to the A10. If you've not yet had the chance to look around the centre yet, you can find out exactly where it is with these directions. Please note that the centre urges candidates to park in designated bays close to the Annex building and report to the entrance lobby. Practice on site is strictly prohibited, so your instructor will take you elsewhere to practice manoeuvres like bay parking.

A Bit More About Tottenham

Learners taking their test at Tottenham test centre will have their skills tested against a wide range of road features and conditions. In close vicinity to the centre is a residential area which is a prime spot for carrying out manoeuvres and pulling over for the examiner. Features like the A10 will then test learners on speed awareness and moving through the gears appropriately. If you’re looking to get to know Tottenham in a more general sense, these resources might help:

Tottenham Test Route

As much as we’d love to ease your nerves and give you Tottenham’s test route, we can’t. Firstly, the DVSA no longer publishes test routes. Secondly, driving on a route you’ve memorised wouldn’t be a good reflection of how safe and confident a driver you are. That being said, the lack of a test route shouldn't have much of an impact. With a local ADI, you'll be introduced to most of the roads that will feature on your test—meaning you'll be less likely to panic on  the day. To see the specific types of roads that might crop up on your practical, simply check out videos of Tottenham test routes on YouTube

Tottenham Test Pass Rates

We don’t know about you, but we absolutely love stats. That’s why we were over the moon when we found out that the DVSA frequently publishes pass rates for all of their test centres. From looking at the latest stats, we can see that the UK’s national average pass rate is 47%. This percentage decreases for learners situated in the London area, with an average of 40.8%. So, how about learners at Tottenham test centre? The centre hasn’t been in operation that long, so we only have stats from the last couple of years…

2013-14 2014-15 2015-16 2016-17 2017-18
- - - 36.4% 37.7%


With pass rates lower than both the UK’s and London’s average pass rates, we can see why you might be disappointed with Tottenham test centre. That being said, we always tell learners to ignore pass rates. Why? It’s down to you and your driving skills—not pass rates.

What If I Can't Go To Tottenham? 

Good news: Tottenham isn’t the only test centre in the local area where you can take your practical. There are plenty of Greater London test centres—the closest of which are Wood Green and Wanstead.

What To Expect On The Day

If you’re anything like our other learners, you’re probably dying to find out exactly what the practical test is like so you can plan ahead. Luckily for you, we’ve broken it all down for you. On the day of your practical, you need to arrive at Tottenham test centre 10 minutes early—do not forget your provisional. The test will then be carried out 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

Hate waiting for results? Luckily, you’ll get them as soon as you get back to Tottenham test centre. The examiner will take a few minutes to finish filling out their feedback sheet—which will be given to you, along with verbal feedback—before telling you how you fared. Learners who pass will also get their hands on a test pass certificate. 

But What If I Fail?

Much like any other test you’ve taken, there’s a possibility that you might fail your driving test. Whether it’s a one-off occurrence or something that takes you a few tries, it’s important to not let yourself get discouraged. Use your feedback sheet and work on the areas you struggled on with your instructor.
