Exam Candidate Parking

There is no candidate parking guaranteed at the exam venue itself.

It is possible to park on the Downs in Bristol for free for up to five hours.  Parking is subject to restrictions between the hours of 9.00 and 5.00 so candidates can park there before 9.00 and leave their car until 2.00 or from 12.00 and leave their car there for the rest of the day.  It is approximately 2.7 km/35 minutes on foot from various parts of the Downs to 2 Queens Avenue (BS8 1SE). Alernatively, candidates can take any bus going down Whiteladies Road and get off on Queens Road.  From there it is less than 2 minutes' walk to 2 Queens Avenue (BS8 1SE).
