Practical Test Centres in Basingstoke

While there’s no way to be sure of a ‘guaranteed pass’ on any individual practical, one of the best ways to avoid driving test faults is to feel confident about the area you’re driving in. That’s why it’s always good to have a solid knowledge of your local test centre. If you live in northern Hampshire, then the Basingstoke test centre will be your closest option, with other local centres found in Farnborough and Winchester.

Theory Test Centres in Basingstoke

Though Basingstoke’s learners are fortunate enough not to have to travel for the practical test, a short commute will be necessary when it comes to the first hurdle you’ll need to pass: the theory test. Luckily, the journey shouldn’t be too long, as test centres are available in nearby Andover, Reading and Aldershot.

Haven't taken your theory test yet?

Still studying for your theory? Not sure whether you’ll need a 5 hour or 5 day revision plan? No matter how you choose to prepare, one of the smartest moves you can make is to get your test date booked in early. That way, you won’t face any delays in booking your practical test! Simply add a theory onto your PassMeFast booking, and we’ll arrange the appointment for you.

Driving Around Basingstoke

Learning to drive is about more than getting to grips with clutch control and figuring out the finer points of parallel parking. For the best chance of practical test success, you’ll also need to know a thing or two about where you’ll be driving. That’s why, during your lessons with PassMeFast, you’ll spend time in the area where your test is due to take place. This helps to put you at ease during the day, meaning you can spend less time panicking about unexpected road features and more time focusing on impressing your examiner.
