Test Centre Locations in Leeds
Harehills is the main test centre in Leeds, which is located at:
386 Harehills Lane
It is worth nothing that there is no parking available at the test centre itself, but students can park on the opposite side of Harehills Lane down Kimberley Road. There are toilets for both males and females available on site.
Other test centres that are not too far from central Leeds are Horsforth, which is the second closest to the city centre, with further test centres in Wakefield and Pontefract about 20 to 30 minutes away. Making sure that you are both comfortable and familiar with the local areas that your test takes place in, will ensure that, as a learner driver, you are confident when undertaking your driving test.
Other test centre locations in Leeds are:
- Horsforth test centre
- Wetherby test centre
Roundabouts in Leeds
Gipton is a small residential area close to the Harehills test centre, which makes it a perfect location for anyone starting to learn to drive on roundabouts. There are several small and large roundabouts reasonably close to each other, which can be used on test routes.
Some of the busier roundabouts are located nearby in Crossgates and Seacroft, as these are located in more densely populated areas. These are almost guaranteed to come up on the test and are a must for any learner driver to experience.
Local roads in Leeds
The city centre is constantly changing, and with occasional road closures and road works throughout the year in various areas, it is best to stay vigilant when driving through it. Peak times for traffic are typically between 8:00am and 9:30am, alongside afternoons between 3:30pm and 6:00pm, so it’s best to plan lessons to avoid some of the main roads in and out of the city during these times. In some cases, a 10 min drive can easily take upwards of half an hour.
Harehills Lane itself is a very busy street with lots of pedestrian crossings, traffic lights and cars parked on both sides, alongside a regular flow of buses, which helps experienced drivers practice different driving scenarios. It also has a very busy traffic light controlled junction at one end where it meets Roundhay Road, which is busy throughout the day.
This is an excellent road to practice on if you have a number of hours under your belt, but beginner drivers should avoid this road until they have gained more experience. The Sherburn area is a much safer bet for beginner drivers, as it is a much quieter and more residential area.
With Leeds being so close to the Yorkshire countryside, there are some fantastic country lane routes to be found if your lessons are planned out well. These quieter country roads are ideal for somebody who has just started their driving journey as the roads are wide and traffic levels of relatively limited.
Motorways in Leeds
There is only one motorway that is located close to Leeds city centre, the M621, which wraps around the south side of the city past Elland Road, the local football stadium for Leeds United Football Club. It can be accessed via the A643 from Holbeck or by travelling through the A61 near Hunslet.
This motorway is great for learner drivers to practise on, as it is simply a 12.39km loop that is centrally located, meaning drivers can take the time to drive out, cover the entire stretch of motorway, and return to their start point, all within the time constraints of a 2-hour driving lesson.
