Leeds Driving Test Centres

Horsforth Driving Test Centre

Test centre address
Room 013
Woodside House
261 Low Lane
LS18 5NY

Telephone: 0113 2584987

Test centre details
Horsforth Driving Test Centre in Leeds is situated on Low Lane about 2 minutes from Horsforth Rail Station.

The test centre does not have a car park, so all car driving tests initiate from the road side. It is usual for the cars to be pointing down the hill as most of the test routes go in this direction.

Low Lane is a very busy road and sometimes parking is at a premium and test candidates sometimes have to park on one of the side streets.

There is no problem with this and all examiners are aware of the parking problems and understand that they usually have a little walk to the car.

Harehills Driving Test Centre

Test centre address
Hillcrest House
386 Harehills Lane

Test centre details
Harehills Driving Test Centre in Leeds  is in the large building on the corner of Harehills Lane/Lupton Avenue.
There is no car park so parking is either on the opposite side of Harehills Lane down Kimberley Road (down side of Netto) or facing you as you step outside the test centre on Clifton Grove.

Leeds Driving Test Centre Tips

The driving test centres for Leeds will incorporate many diverse road types and traffic systems. Expect busy A roads and dual carriageways through to high speed rural roads. The examiner from Leeds driving test centres will be assessing your ability on many traffic systems from roundabouts, crossroads to various junction types. The driving test often includes narrow residential roads that appear quiet but are often hazardous due to oncoming traffic and narrow lanes.

1 driving test manoeuvre will be requested. The emergency stop procedure has a 1 in 3 possibility of being requested. approximately 10 minutes of the driving test is reserved for independent driving.

Certain driving test centres operate driving test at weekends on Saturdays. The level of traffic congestion during Saturdays is often much less making it beneficial for the driving test. Booking a driving test on Saturdays incurs a slightly higher test fee.

Some of the Leeds driving test routes are available for viewing and will gain you the advantage of knowing the various road types likely to be taken from your chosen Leeds Driving Test Centre. Understanding the difficult parts of the test routes will gain the most advantage such as busy roads and complicated roundabouts.
