Driving Theory Test Centres in Peterhead

The Peterhead theory test centre operates on a part-time basis out of The Palace Hotel on Prince Street. This means it’s centrally located, but you can’t always be guaranteed a test date that matches your preferences. Make sure you book your test here well in advance, or at least do some research before setting your heart on this test centre.

As it happens, PassMeFast can be a great help when it comes to that research! We’ve hit up the DVSA and scoured the local area for all of the information a learner could possibly need to know about this test centre. To discover what we found, keep reading!

Pass Rates by Year

In all honesty, the pass rates here are based on very small numbers, so they don’t really give you a clear picture of how easy or hard it is to pass here. If stats are your thing, though, the positive news is that, for the last couple of years, the pass rate here has been well above the national average!

Guides and Tips

It’s time to pop your student hat on, because preparing for the theory test involves a decent amount of revision. There’s a lot of material to learn, from the Highway Code, to a strong understanding of the essential skills involved in driving. 

Don’t forget that you’ll also have to pass a hazard perception test. Clicking the mouse at random intervals will get you nowhere! And, trust us, quite a few learners have tried that one.

So, to ensure you’re doing enough revision to get yourself in a position to pass first time, dedicate plenty of time to it. Kick things off by checking out some of our favourite revision guides:

Nearby Theory Test Centres

You don’t necessarily have to limit yourself to the Peterhead theory test centre. As we’ve mentioned, it might not even be offering tests at the time you need to take one. Take a look at some other nearby options, like the Aberdeen and Huntly theory test centres.

What Happens Next?

If you follow the advice outlined in this guide, we have no doubt that you’ll be clutching a theory test pass certificate very soon. Once that happens, what’s next on the agenda? That would be the practical driving test.

This requires you to replace revision with actual driving lessons. It is highly recommended that you take these with a DVSA-approved instructor. Extra practice lessons with friends and family members who meet the requirements to supervise a learner are great, but they work best in conjunction with professional tuition.

It’s a good idea to book your practical test before you’re ready to take it, as this gives you a set date to work towards. Plus, you can expect some fairly significant wait times. There’s a practical test centre in Peterhead, so this is probably your best option.

Want to feel like you’re in capable hands when working towards your driving licence? Then let PassMeFast be of service. We offer a range of driving courses suitable for learners of various experience levels. Our team will also set you up with an instructor and book any tests that you require. We’ve found that this approach really takes the weight off learners and allows them to focus completely on the driving itself.
