Driving Theory Centres

Finding the nearest driving theory centre to you is easy as the government makes this information available to you online.

There is a website that enables you to find the nearest driving theory centre to you either by clicking on the A - Z, but the easiest way to do it is to choose the search by county option that appears at the bottom right of the page.

The website to visit is here:

http://www.dsa.gov.uk/AtoZservices_Bannered.asp?Cat=-1&TestType=&TypeID=18

If you click that link it will open in a new window and go straight to the page where you can find a theory test centre nearest to you from the Directgov website.

For instance, if you live in Hampshire then choose that county from the drop down list and (at the time of writing) you'll see that there are five options: Aldershot, Basingstoke, Fareham, Portsmouth and Southampton.

Each of those will be a clickable list and when you go through to the centre you can see exactly what its address is: for instance if you were to pick Aldershot in Hampshire (a very popular one due to the number of sixth form colleges around such as Farnborough Sixth Form and Farnborough Tech) then you can see it is on Pickford Street, Aldershot.

Once you have found the nearest driving theory centre to you, the next step will be to book your test there. But first you need to be confident in your ability to pass, so why not register and access all the official theory test questions on our site now?
