You should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your driving test commences. preferably 5 minutes. The test centre is quite busy, so arriving too early may mean that you’re in the way of driving tests in Luton coming back. So there’s quite a fine line in terms of timing. Always position your vehicle so it’s ready to drive forwards straight away once your test commences. You may be asked to do the Bay Park manoeuvre at the beginning of the test, so being in the correct position from the start helps. At the beginning of your driving test in Luton be sure to look all around you before moving out, as there may up to 6 other learners moving out at the same time. Having a near collision with the learner next to you would be a disastrous start.
