Located on a busy B road in an inner city area of Leeds, Harehills Test Centre will put your urban driving skills to the test. If you live in the city centre or the west of the city, you might already be familiar with some of the routes round the test centre making it a wise choice for you.

Pass rates

The national pass rate for 2017-18 was 46.3%, and unfortunately Harehills Test Centre comes quite a bit below this with a pass rate of 33.3%. As the centre is based in an inner city area not far from the city centre, it’s not surprising that the pass rates are a little lower, as there are certainly additional challenges that come with urban driving. If you decide to take your test here, make sure that you’re familiar with the routes that might come up.
