Halifax Driving Test Centre is situated around busy urban roads where the examiner will request you demonstrate a high degree of knowledge and safety for various road systems. These systems will include roundabouts, junctions, crossroads and possibly one-way-systems.

The test centre being located on the out-skirts of Halifax may also incorporate rural roads and high speed ‘A’ roads such as the A58 and A629. The tutorial section contains help and tips for country road driving.

A single test manoeuvre (occasionally two) will be requested along with a one-in-three possibility of the emergency stop procedure.

Ten minutes will be reserved for the independent part of the driving test. The Halifax driving test routes may alter slightly during the practical but will generally detail the various routes that the examiner will take you on.


The time in which you take your driving test makes a difference in terms of traffic. Peak traffic times (rush hour) can coincide with test times. If you prefer quieter roads whilst taking your test, avoid booking during these times. To book a practical driving test, see below for options.

Contact and booking telephone numbers can be located within the book a driving test section. If you wish to speak to an adviser, listen to the options provided in the recorded message.

Book your driving test online

The worst test centre in West Yorkshire by a mile. Had my test here and from the minute he got in the car the examiner was rude and unpleasant. Eventually got on with the exam which went reasonably well. In the end gave me 10 minors for absolutely nothing and a serious fault for positioning, claiming I was too close to an oncoming vehicle despite there clearly being enough room for the both of us. Highly do not recommend this test centre

Failed my test today due to another road user pulling out in front of me I was failed for doing an emergency stop without her instructing me to do so. Examiner was very blunt and rude and she made me feel uncomfortable from the very start of the test. Very unfair treatment and not a good experience at all I am now left very nervous and anxious about rebooking.

Horrible examiner, failed for going too slow however I stuck to the speed limit wasn’t my fault if a guy overtook me on a BEND yes a bend of course I’m going to slow down. Extremely sad. Booked my next test in heckmondwike

Failed my test second time and the examiner told me I had one serious fault that was a silly lame excuse to fail me. Not happy at all with the standards where they make minor as a serious fault.
