Sidcup Driving Test Centre

Sidcup Driving Test Centre

Sidcup Test Centre

Actually located in Foots Cray, just down the hill from Sidcup town centre. Placed in the center of an business industrial estate, which also means it's one of the largest. Boasting it's own car park with modern facilities within. Although Sidcup test centre has a couple of larger round-a-bouts, its one of our favourite. Covering pretty much anything you may come across after you pass your test.

A number of Sidcup test routes will see you navigating either the A20 or some of the villiages surrounding Sidcup. For example, you may head up towards Orpington & Petts Wood. Similarly you could be seen weaving through traffic in Swanley or Bexley Village.
