Arriving at Hull Theory Test Centre

By public transport

As it’s right in the city centre, getting to your test should be quite easy, even if you don’t have a car. If you’re taking the train, it’s only a 7-minute walk from Hull Paragon Interchange to the test centre. That’s less than half a mile!

Fancy taking the bus instead? You won’t be short of options. The closest stops to the centre, depending on which direction you’re coming from, are Bond Street and George Street. They’re both less than 2 minutes from the centre, so you won’t be walking for long!

To get more information on transport in Hull, like timetables and routes, head over to the Hull City Council website.

By car

If you’re ditching the public transport option and travelling by car, it couldn’t be simpler. Type HU1 3EN into your sat nav and follow the directions. You’ll eventually find yourself on either the A165, Ferensway or A63 (maybe even all three!)—making your way to Silvester St from these major roads shouldn’t take too long.  

Parking

The bad news is that there’s no parking available at the centre itself (this is quite common with test centres). Not to worry, however—there are some great options very close by. You can try Albion Street car park first, from which it is a very quick 1-minute walk to your test. It’s a very reasonable £2 for 2 hours of parking. Alternatively, you could also try Dock Street car park. It’s a 4-minute walk from the test centre and charges just £1.80 for 2 hours! There are only 40 spaces, though, so you might want to get in early.

Pass Rates by Year

Hull theory test centre’s pass rate has always been fairly high, though as you can see, in the last few years it has dipped just below the national average. Don’t use these rates as an indication of how well you are likely to do in the theory test if you choose to take it here. The test is exactly the same no matter where in the country you take it, so the end result is down to you!

Hotels

Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best ways to set yourself up for a successful test day. A rested head is usually a clear head, after all! If you’re not from the Hull area and are worried about spending the morning of your test rushing around in an attempt to not be late, it might be an idea to spend the night before your test in one of Hull’s many hotels. We’ve scoured the area and picked out a few of the best options. Check them out below.

Pop down to the pub itself for a cheeky tipple and maybe even a nice meal, before heading up to your room to catch some shut eye. Everything you need is under one roof.
