Arriving at Liverpool Theory Test Centre

By public transport

Liverpool theory test centre is located right in the heart of this thriving city. This makes getting here by public transport a doddle. If you’re arriving by train, the closest station will be James Street—from which it’s a mere 4-minute walk to your test! The rail options don’t stop there, either. Moorfields station is only 6 minutes away and Lime Street (a particularly handy option for those travelling longer distances) is a 16-minute walk away from the test centre.

If you’re taking a bus, the best place to disembark is either the Fenwick Street or Rumford Street stop. They’re a 1 and 2-minute walk from the centre, respectively.

Looking for more information on Liverpool transport, like timetables and routes? Just head over to the Liverpool City Council website.

By car

If someone’s nice enough to offer you a lift to the test centre, they just need to type L2 8TD into a sat nav and follow the instructions. As with all city centres, this area can get very busy, so try to avoid booking a test during rush hour if you intend to arrive by car.

Parking

The test centre does not provide on-site parking, but luckily you have more than a few options in the surrounding area. The most convenient option isn’t exactly the cheapest: Rumford Street car park is only a 1-minute walk away, but they charge a rather steep £7.70 for 2 hours of parking. If you want an option that’s a little more easy on the wallet, try the Beetham Plaza car park. It’s only a 4-minute walk from the test centre and they charge a more affordable £3.20 for 2 hours.

Pass Rates by Year

Though the Liverpool test centre’s pass rates have taken a bit of a dip in the past few years, they are above the national average, which is always a good sign! Plus, it’s important to remember that pass rates don’t actually have much bearing on your personal performance. The theory test is the same no matter where you take it.
