Basildon Theory Test Centre

The test centre has been running since 2009, offering theory tests to anyone who wants one. They offer both paper-based and computerised versions of the test, which take around two hours each.

Basildon Theory Test Centre Directions

The test centre is located at the junction of the A127 and A13 roads in Basildon. It is just off Junction 7 of the M25 motorway.


The bus service has been running since December 2017 but it’s only now that we’ve got our first official timetable. It’s still early days but we’re hoping this will encourage people to take advantage of the new routes.

Book a test online

The theory tests are a great way to see if you’ve got what it takes to pass your driving licence. But booking one isn’t always straightforward. To book a test, you’ll need your provisional licence, proof of address, and ID. You’ll then need to wait around for two weeks before you can take the test. If you fail, you’ll have to pay £60 to retake it.

Before you start

The theory test has become one of the most stressful experiences of life for many people. It’s not just the fear of getting it wrong that makes it so difficult – it’s the fact that once you’ve failed it’s really hard to pass again.

When you do not need a theory test

If you don't need a theory test, then it's likely that you will be able to take it at another time. The best way to find out if this is possible is by contacting the DVSA directly.

Arriving at Basildon Theory Test Centre

I was surprised by how busy it was. It seemed like everyone was trying to book a test at once. There were queues everywhere. I had to wait around for almost half an hour before I could sit down.

Pass Rates by Year

The pass rate has remained steady at around 80% since 2012. This means that every year, around 20 people fail their driving test.

What is the theory test pass mark?

The pass mark is 80% (or above) in all four sections of the theory test. If you fail any section, you will not be allowed to sit the practical driving test.

Can I take my theory test online?

Yes, you can take your theory test online at The website will give you a link to take the test, which you can print out and take to any driving school. If you want to book an appointment with a driving instructor, they should be able to tell you where to go.

What is the waiting time for a theory test?

The average waiting time for a theory driving test is around 2 weeks. This will depend on where you live and whether it’s a weekday or weekend day. If you want to book a test at a different centre, you can do so online here.
