Getting to the Tarbert driving theory test centre for your test from Portavadie is best done across the ferry; once you have landed at Tarbert, either drive down Pier Road, carrying on as it turns into Harbour Street and then turning right onto School Road; alternatively take the 448 bus towards Tarbert and get off at the post office. Bus services connect you to Lochgilphead, Campbeltown, Portavadie, Coulagh Hamilton and Glasgow, so you should have no problems getting to the centre by bus. Car parking is limited, though there are spaces on the road, but it is still advisable to take public transport. If driving is unavoidable, then from the A83 you will need to turn on to Harbour Street and take a right turn down School Road.

Booking your driving theory test at the Tarbert centre is not possible over the phone; the simplest alternative is to use our online booking form. All you need to have with you is your UK or NI driving licence and a valid payment card to do so. Bear in mind that the test centre is on the second floor of the building, so if you need wheelchair access please mention it when making your booking. After that, all there is left to do is practice, concentrate, and - most important - don't forget your documents on the day!
