Hornchurch is a large town in the London borough of Havering. Just in case you don’t know the area that well, if you live in this town and are looking to take get your full licence, the first thing you need to do is get your provisional driving licence. You do this through the DVLA, here is a link with more information. The next step is to pass your theory and hazard perception test. There aren’t that many nearby unfortunately with Ilford being the nearest at around 5 miles away. Outside this area, you would be looking at Sidcup or Basildon.
Once the theory test is passed you will be looking for a practical driving test centre. Luckily, there’s a few more to choose from. You’re lucky enough to have one in Hornchurch and a bit further away is Goodmayes. If you fancied somewhere else, Brentwood would be your next nearest. Your Driving Instructor will be able to give you more information on all these centres, or if you would like some more details now, check out the ‘Find Your Nearest‘ feature on the Department Of Transport website.
If you choose to take your driving test in Hornchurch, the Examiner will have over 20 possible routes to choose from. This is so people can’t learn the routes too much and know too much about what’s coming up. The area around the test centre has a wide variety of roads from narrow residential roads such as Warren Drive, to busy dual carriageways like the A127 and A12. This allows you to show your skills as a driver on different types of roads.
Finally when booking your tests, make sure you do it through the gov.uk website. There are plenty of sites out there that will charge a ‘booking fee’ of between £10 and £20 to book the test for you. However you still have to enter in all your information, all they do is then enter that into the official site on your behalf.
At the time of writing this (November 2012) the theory test is £31 and the standard driving test is £62.
