Nottingham Life in the UK Test Centre

CTP Nottingham
6 Sherwood Rise,

If you are driving, please know that the site is easy to get to from the A60. There aren’t many places to park close, but most of them are free. We’ve chosen two nearby places that might be useful.

Duke Street

Please keep in mind that there are only 14 parking spots available at this place. Make sure you have a plan B in case there aren’t any open spots when you arrive (see below). The parking lot is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are no fees to park.

To get to the venue, please take Gawthorne Street southwest and keep going in that direction on Beech Avenue. The test centre is across the street on the other side of Sherwood Rise, as you get closer to the end of Beech Avenue. The whole trip will take about eight minutes.

Selhurst Street

Once again, there are no parking costs and the location is open day and night. Even though there is more room for cars to park, there are still only about 25 more spots. And, sadly, there aren’t any other parking lots or on-street spots close enough to walk to the venue.

Please be aware that this building has charging stations for electric vehicles.

It will take you about 19 minutes to get to the test centre, which is about 2 km away. Going east on Berridge Road from Selhurst Street until it ends. After that, please turn left onto Sherwood Rise and keep going north until you get to the venue. Unfortunately, there isn’t a bus service that stops close to the test site that can be taken from here.


Numerous bus lines go by the testing site. Here are two of the most important services.


The 17 goes from the city heart of Nottingham to Bulwell. Depending on where it starts, it goes north or south. Please get off at Ebury Road if you’re taking this route. To get to the place from here, just take Ebury Road west, turn right at the end of the road, and go up Sherwood Rise to the test centre.

Service in Calverton:

Between Nottingham and Calverton, this bus goes northeast to southwest. At the Hucknall Road stop, which is about 650 m from the test spot, please get off the bus. First go west on New Street, and then keep going west on Hamilton Road. To get to Sherwood Rise, turn right at the end of the road. Move forward going north until you can see the building on your right.

To give you an idea, numbers 70, 71, and 69 all go from Nottingham to places further north. All of them have stops that are close enough to walk to from the test centre. This page has more information about these services and other public transport choices.


There is a local tram line in Nottingham that goes from the city centre to areas nearby. The nearest bus stop to the event is in Bulwell, which is a little more than 4 km away. Going this far on foot might be too much, but this trip is easy to make by bus.

As you leave the tram stop, go up Station Road and then turn right onto Main Street. There is a bus stop right next to Bulwell Market. Take the above-mentioned 69 train that goes south to Nottingham. Get off at the Health Centre on Nottingham Road, and then go 100 metres south. The venue will be on your left.

The Nottingham Train Station is on the south side of the city centre of Nottingham, which makes it a long way from New Basford. There is, however, public transport going to the place. Find the bus stop right outside the station and get on the 11C Nottingham service. Leave this bus at the Victoria Centre after five minutes. For three minutes, move forward northward towards the bus stop outside of Curry’s PC World. Take the 69 bus to the Health Centre. From there, it will take you about a minute to walk to the test spot.
