This practical driving test centre is now permanently closed. The nearest alternatives are Bredbury, Chadderton and Cheetham Hill.

Located on Perrin Street, next door to a block of flats, Hyde test centre is relatively small in size. Based in a quiet residential estate, Hyde has hundreds of learners head to its steps for driving tests each month. If you're one of the many learners taking your test here, we'd recommend you get to know it a bit better. You can do so by reading up on directionspass ratestest routes and much more about Hyde below.

How To Get There

Barely a stone's throw from the centre of Hyde itself—and the busy M67—Hyde test centre is ideally located and accessible for all learners living in and around the Tameside area. It couldn't be easier to arrive there, simply use these directions and off you go. Please note that Hyde test centre doesn't have a car park—meaning you'll have to park on nearby residential streets. 

A Bit More About Hyde

Examiners wouldn't be able to truly test candidates during the driving test if the area didn't provide a decent selection of road conditions and features. Hyde test centre is perfectly located—with the vicinity of narrow residential streets, the A560 and additional challenging features—to ensure that all candidates will be put through their paces on their final step towards becoming fully qualified drivers. Looking for more general information about Hyde?

Hyde Test Route

You’ll no longer be able to find up-to-date Hyde test routes because the DVSA stopped publishing test routes. Before you start panicking, relax! You can still predict what might show up by looking at videos of Hyde test routes on YouTube or by downloading our sample Hyde driving test routes. There's absolutely nothing to worry about, as the test route will just be testing you on the same skills you've worked on in your lessons. In fact, your instructor will have likely taken you on the roads that will feature on your test route.

What If I Can't Go To Hyde?

Hyde test centre isn’t the only practical test centre in Greater Manchester. So if you can’t head to Hyde, you can always head on over to Bredbury test centre.

What To Expect On The Day

By the time your practical test date rolls on by, you should be more than prepared for whatever comes your way. All that’s left for you to do on the day is to get to Hyde 10 minutes early, with your provisional licence. The layout of your 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:
  • Twenty minutes of independent driving, during which you’ll either follow sat nav directions or sign posts to reach a set destination

You’ll get the results for your test as soon as you get back to Hyde test centre. You'll get the chance to see which driving test faults you made when the examiner shows you your feedback sheet. If you're successful, you'll be given a test pass certificate and you’ll hand over your provisional in order to send off for your new licence.

But What If I Fail?

Many students fail their practical test, so you shouldn’t beat yourself up over it. You can use this as a way to improve your driving skills—examiners give vital feedback when you fail, so make sure you use it in time for your next test.
