The 10 Best HGV Test Centre Pass Rates

Everyone who’s ever passed a driving test can remember the incredible relief at hearing those magic words “I’m pleased to tell you you’ve passed.” For many people taking HGV tests, hearing these words often means a new career awaits too, which further increases the significance. But where in the UK would you statistically be most likely to hear these words after taking your test? We approached the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) who are responsible for conducting driving tests, and asked them to tell us the 10 best HGV test centre pass rates in the UK.

  • 10 Llantrisant, (Pontyclun, Wales) 67.2%

  • 9 Elgin (Moray, Scotland) 69.9%

  • 8 Dumfries LGV (Scotland) 70.0%

  • 7 Glasgow LGV (Scotland) 71.1%

  • 6 Orkney (Scotland) 74.0%

  • 5 Ipswich (Suffolk, England) 74.1%

  • 4 Stornoway LGV (Scotland) 75.0%

  • 3 Rookley LGV (Isle of Wight, England) 92.1%

  • 2 Berwick-On-Tweed (England) 92.7%

  • 1 Machrihanish LGV (Scotland) 100.0%


You’ll notice a bit of a theme, with 6 of the Top 10 being in Scotland, and with Berwick upon Tweed being the northernmost town in England, it’s seems they’re doing something right at the top end of the British Isles!
