Choose the nearest one for convenience. Neither one is an easy option. The pass rates are about the same for both. Some students inform me friends say Northallerton is easier to pass at. This is incorrect. The Driving Test Examiners at Northallerton do not consider their area an “easy” option and state that their standards are just the same as their Knaresborough colleagues. Northallerton is also further away from the Ripon area so getting there and back will cost you much more in the long run.
