As of Friday 15 September 2017, Failsworth test centre has officially closed. This means that you’ll no longer be able to take your test there. The Failsworth staff have now been moved over to Chadderton test centre which will act as a replacement site. Pupils will be able to take driving tests at Chadderton from Monday 18 September 2017. Before you start worrying about how this will affect you, you should know that there are plenty of other test centres that you could take your practical at.
