You are entitled to reschedule the theory test for an alternative date and time, or cancel the test to receive a full refund. Please allow for a minimum of three working days notice (including Saturdays) for either of these to be possible.


After you have completed your theory test booking, you’ll receive an e-mail from the DVSA. Check your junk mail in case you didn’t receive it. This e-mail will confirm the theory test date appointment and provide you with a reference number. Although not essential to take to the theory test centre, it’s advisable to print this e-mail to show to the centre staff if any problems arise.


Reception area is on the ground floor at the far end of the building. Security and fraud prevention is taken seriously at all theory test centres. Whilst attending Stockport Theory Test Centre, you must show the staff your provisional driving licence photocard, or if you have the old paper type, this must be taken along with a valid passport.

If you have the old licence, but no passport, you must apply for a new driving licence. If you are unable to show these forms of identification, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to take the test, also resulting in a loss of test fee. If you have misplaced your licence, contact the DVLA who will send you a replacement. See the learning to drive section for information on obtaining a new licence. Arrive at Stockport Theory Test Centre in good time as theory test centres have strict test slot times. Late arrivals that miss their allotted time slot will forfeit the theory test and lost the test booking fee.

My son arrived 2mins late because of a train delay the woman on reception was extremely rude and refused to allow him to take his test after travelling from Macclesfield

 by Matthew

Woman at the reception is incredibly rude, mumbled and sighed when asked to repeat what she said. Spent most of her time looking at the desk and made no attempt at all to be nice. The guy who tells you your booth was lovely 5/5 for him, the woman needs to cheer up and stop being such a miserable sod

The lady in reception was not friendly at all however the gentlemen who was next to the test room was lovely and helpful. I went for my next test in Manchester and it was much friendlier atmosphere.

Took my test yesterday and was fearing the worst after reading these reviews. Feel I need to say what an absolute load of nonsense the previous reviews are. The staff were friendly, professional and excellent at their jobs in what is a very popular and busy test centre. It's also properly signposted from the reception entrance at the side of Kingsgate House.

This place is an absolute joke!! NHS signs all over the building, no signs, anywhere, relating to driving theory tests, the name of the building itself is only visible from one side, there's no where to park, at all. When we finally figured out this was the correct building, we then had to figure out how the heck to gain access to the car park, and then found one reception area to do with the NHS, we finally found another generic reception area, again no signage relating to theory tests, I asked someone, and we were told where to go. Despite spending 5 or 10 mins running around trying to find where the heck the place is, because they can't be bothered displaying signs, and despite a road closure and a diversion, we were still 5 mins early, however not 10 mins early as per the instructions. My son was then verbally abused by the person managing the tests, who barked at him to ask him why he was late, which he wasn't, told him he wasn't allowed to take the practice test, as he was late (which he wasn't) told him to empty his pockets, spit out his chewing gum, and wouldn't allow him to take his bottle of water (which has no label on) into the test, and was generally rude and obnoxious. Not good.
