Manual driving lessons in Northampton
You can also book manual driving lessons if you’ve changed your mind about learning to drive in an automatic. However, if you’ve decided to switch, keep in mind that it might take a bit longer to pass your driving test, as you’ll need to master the clutch and get to grips with changing gear.
If you do pass your test in a manual car, you do have the option of driving an automatic vehicle once you have your licence. On the other hand, if you pass in an automatic, you won’t be able to drive in a manual, so it’s worth weighing up the pros and cons of each.

Taking your driving test in Northampton
If you’re learning to drive in Northampton, there’s a good chance you’ll take your test at Northampton Driving Test Centre. The site is located in Gladstone Business Centre and there’s parking and disabled access if required.
|Month||Tests Taken||Tests Passed||Pass Rate|
Looking back 12 months from March 2022, 9,732 tests were taken at Northampton test centre and the site had an overall pass rate of 47.84%, which is just about the national average. The number of tests conducted in this period is down compared to previous years, mainly due to Covid-19 and several national lockdowns.
Although the pass rate was 59% in April 2021, it’s worth noting the small sample size could be skewing the results in that particular month.
The waiting time for a test is around four months, so you’ll need to book your driving test after a few lessons if you’re to pass on time. If you can’t wait four months for a test, you can find an earlier test date with our driving test cancellation checker.
As your driving improves and you reach test standard, your driving instructor will set up a mock practical test to show you what it’s like to drive under test conditions. You’ll fail your mock test if you pick up a serious or dangerous fault.
Your mock test will take you around a typical text route at Northampton test centre and here’s a video of a typical test route.
