Skills Tests - anyone else over 70 miles from a test centre?

    I've just been offered a Schools Direct place for September and need to complete the skills tests, except it says the nearest testing centre to me is 75 miles away (and inside the M25, so probably best via train/tube). I am on maternity and breastfeeding at the moment so would have to take my husband and baby with me - so additional pressure to get them right first time!

    Anyone else in a similar situation? Why are they so far away?!

    Are you accessing the correct information? There are quite a few test centres in the SE.

    Yes, I checked with Learn Direct, they said they no longer have a test centre in Kent. I travelled to Lewisham in the end which was okay and passed first time.

    I had to travel an hour both times to do mine.
