Bank Street,
S1 2EL


Sheffield’s testing site is in the Synergy Building, which is on Bank Street, on the edge of the city centre’s northern portion. There are many ways to get to different parts of Sheffield from the M1 motorway. The test spot is just off the A61. Remember that the door to the test centre is on the side of the building that faces Bank Street.


Several on-street parking spots are available on Bank Street and Hartshead, which are the streets that surround the building. You can also park on Queen Street, which is close by. If this choice isn’t available on the day of your test, though, you should go to the Hartshead Square multi-story parking lot. A two-hour parking ticket at this site costs £5.90, which is more than enough time to get to the venue, take the test, and get back to your car. This page takes every kind of payment. The parking lot is only 50 m east of the Synergie building.

For more parking choices in the area, please see the Parkopedia page for that area.


Since the testing site is in the city centre, there are many bus lines that go by nearby. If you use a service on Sheffield’s local bus network, please try to get off at one of the following bus stops, if possible:

Castle Street, West Bar/Workhouse Lane, Church Street or High Street. These places are all walkable from the Synergy building and only take a few minutes.

There is a handy local tram service in Sheffield that goes into the city centre on a regular basis. If you want to take this type of travel, please go to the Cathedral tram stop, which you can get to by taking the blue, yellow or purple line. The Synergy building is only 150 m south of this stop.

People come from all over the UK to use Sheffield Train Station, which is a major transportation hub. The station is just under a kilometre south of where the tests will be given. It takes about twelve minutes to walk to Bank Street from the station. Use Pond Street and Arundel Gate to get through the town centre, then take High Street and High Court to go northwest. When you get to the end of the second road, you’ll be in Hartshead Square, about 50 metres east of the Synergy building and just outside the Hartshead Square Car Park.

Visit the National Rail website for real-time information on train times, station services, and how to get to stations.

There aren’t any good bus routes that link, and the ones that are available only go about halfway to the venue. You can take a blue or purple line bus from the Train Station/Hallam University stop to Castle Square, which is about 150 m southeast of the test site.

If you have any concerns with the test booking you can call the Life in the UK Test Helpline at 0800 015 4245. The operation hours are Monday through Friday, 8am to 4pm.
