Pass Rate at Barnet Driving Test Centre

Last Minute Driving Test Cancellations Barnet, LondonBarnet has a very low pass rate compared to many other across the country. The pass rate averages at 33%, however, this does not mean the examiner will always fail you. Or that the examiners are biased or will purposely fail you.

So, what are you waiting for?. It is time to learn how to drive. Where is the calmest place to begin lessons.

Just opposite Barnet Practical Driving Test Centre, there are several roads which are perfect for starting learning how to drive, in particular The Fairway which leads onto Greenhill Park, and also Richmond Road which leads to Gloucester Road. These roads are extremely busy with other learning drivers, so take care. This is a good place to practice doing a parallel parking. What is the speed limit for this street?. There are mostly 30mph, but Mays Lane is 20mph, signposts are difficult to see.

This has caught many novice drivers off guard on tests.

Are there lots of roundabouts big or small in my local area?. There are a fair number of small roundabouts in this area, but if you are looking to practice on the bigger ones, I would recommend heading to the New Southgate area, where you will find a fair number.

Are there any double carriageways?. The A1 Barnet Way and A406 are the nearest dual carriageways.

What is the best time of the day for driving lessons?. It gets busier during rush hour, but as long as you are going in the opposite direction to traffic, you should still be able to do plenty of driving. In the mornings, it is busy heading to central London, while at night, it is busy heading out of London. The best times to train are 10am until 3pm, the roads can get really crowded outside of those times during working hours. The smaller side roads are usually less crowded.

Are there any busy/hard/unusual intersections?. There are a few width restrictions that are pretty narrow, so be extra cautious driving when going through these. Also, joining Barnet Way from Galley Lane, the traffic in the dual carriageway is moving really quickly, so exercise patience.

Is there anywhere for you to practice your parking in bays?. . There are not a lot of places to practice, other than in apartment complexes.

You may get the opportunity to practice in the Barnet Test Centre, as long as no tests are being held. Please do not go there at the times when tests are being held. Oak Hill Park has parking lots you can use for practicing as well.

Which is my nearest Theory Test Centre?. The nearest theory test centres are in Southgate, Watford, and then London Bridge (Southwark) Theory Test Centre. Where is my nearest Practical Test Centre?.

Here are some towns you may come across in on your driving in Barnet –


Chipping Barnet 

Chipping Barnet gets its name from the privilege granted to the monks of St. Albans holding a market there. Barnet became part of the G.L.C in 1964 – where the Post Office retained its identity which identified Barnet as a Hertfordshire town.



Hadley is 13 miles north of Central London – this is where travellers reach lovely areas of grass, trees and ponds which are surrounded by the most elegant Georgian houses and a few charming old cottages. This is the southern-most point of the village.


Hadley Wood 

Before London, Hadley Wood was the last outpost of rural Hertfordshire. If you come down from Scotland by train, you will not see the name Hadley Wood as the train goes through the station set which cuts in between two tunnels. 



When you book your last-minute intensive driving lessons, you will have the choice of learning in an automatic or a manual car. Last year alone, there were over 1.7 million driving tests conducted. Out of these, only about 30% were taken in an automatic car.

Manual or Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons

It’s easier to pass your driving test in a week by taking an automatic car compared to a manual. This is because you don’t have the extra task of changing gears, especially on approach to junctions such as roundabouts. This, in turn, means that you will have more time to focus on the speed and observations on the approach to such junctions. Once you’ve passed your driving test in an automatic, you will be restricted to driving only automatics. However, you are most welcome to upgrade to a manual license by retaking and passing another test.
