If you’re a regular reader of the PassMeFast blog, you’ll be all too aware of how many test centres in the UK end up closing or relocating each year. That’s why we keep an eye on test centre news, to make sure you know exactly where your test will take place. This month, the DVSA has relocated Pontefract test centre due to maintenance work. Fortunately, this is only a temporary relocation, and learners will still be able to take their driving tests without a hitch.
Read on to find out everything you need to know about the Pontefract test centre relocation—from the new temporary address to what your alternative test centre options are just in case!
Pontefract test centre relocation
Pontefract test centre is currently undergoing maintenance work. Fortunately, rather than closing it down for the duration, the DVSA has decided to temporarily relocate it. This is great news for learner drivers in the Pontefract area, as it means you don’t have to make other arrangements for your driving test. So, how exactly will this work if you’ve got a test booked in? Well, you’ll simply meet your driving examiner at the local Premier Inn instead of Pontefract test centre. If you’re not entirely sure where that is, have no fear! We’ve got the new temporary address here:
A1 Business Park
This arrangement will continue until the maintenance work at Pontefract test centre has been completed. We will be sure to keep you informed on the progress on the blog. Tests are still available to book at Pontefract test centre using the DVSA’s booking service. If, however, you like to live life in the fast lane, you can get PassMeFast to speed up the process and book you a fast-track practical test.
What are my other options?
If you’re slightly put off by the concept of meeting your examiner at a different location, or you’ve simply decided that Pontefract isn’t for you, you can opt to take your test at one of the many other centres available in West Yorkshire. If you’re willing to head further afield, alternatives include:
- Bradford (Heaton)
- Bradford (Thornbury)
You can compare all of your test centre options with our handy essential guide to West Yorkshire test centres.
