ATTENDING YOUR THEORY TEST
Car parking can be located on Butt Road, 6 minutes walk to the theory test centre.

Nightmare to park at institute theory test center. Found a car patk
Had to downliad app to pay but coulf not complete transa tion.
Found a side road on camous eventualy and waited there.
Hope I never have to come back.
The workers were so rude especially the woman at the front desk. If so many people are complaining about the rudeness why isn’t there a change? Absolutely appalling, I wish this could be taken further.
My son went to collect his sister from the Butt Road centre after she had taken her theory test. He could find no place nearby to stop so he drove in to Wellingto House in order to collect her and received a £100 fine several days later. He had NOT LEFT the vehicle unattended.
The fine notice was sent to the wrong address, making it too late to be discounted.
DO NOT BOOK YOUR TEST AT THIS CENTRE WITHOUT FIRST MAKING ARRANGEMENTS TO GET THERE. BUS OR TAXI WOULD BE BEST.
ALL FINES. BETTER STILL , DO NOT USE THIS TEST CENTRE. Mi
ALL FINES GO TO SUPPORT PRIVATE PROFITS.
Rating should be ZERO.
Passed theory test on the 2nd time. Thanks to staff who made me feel comfortable.
I failed my theory test. But just wanted to say that the staff at Colchester made me feel at ease when I arrived. Also I needed a little help when doing the test and just had to raise my hand and the woman was there in a flash to help. I was so worried about the reviews that I read and was going to change the test centre so glad I didn't - so ignore the reviews that you may have read.
