There is limited parking available at Croydon Test Centre, so if you can avoid bringing a car other than the one in which you’ll be taking your test, that’s probably a safe option.
This test centre has male and female toilets for learners to access.
Croydon Test Centre’s pass rate for 2017-18 was 37.6%. The national average was 46.3%, so Croydon was a fair way below average. Don’t let that put you off too much though - it’s not unusual for urban-based test centres to have a lower pass rate, and Croydon’s pass rate is pretty standard for London!
