GAMSAT Birmingham Test Centre | Location, parking, where is the test held?
What is the location of the Gamsat Birmingham test centre and is there parking?
The test is usually held in the same location every year.
In 2021 the test was held in the Jurys Inn hotel which is in the city centre at 245 Broad Street, Birmingham, B1 2HQ
So if you're taking Gamsat in Birmingham the chances are that's where you'll be taking it.
However although ACER do tend to re-use the same venues for the test the actual locations are not confirmed until you receive your official admissions ticket about two weeks before the test.
So to be on the safe side you should probably hold off until you get the official notification of the address before you make hotel reservations or other travel arrangements.
Please also be aware that there is now a clean air zone in effect in Birmingham so you should check the government website to see if your vehicle will have to pay a charge to enter - www.gov.uk/clean-air-zones
Paid parking is available at the hotel's onsite car park, which has 200 parking spaces, tariffs are as follows:
Up to 1 hour: £1.50
Up to 2 hours: £3.00
Up to 3 hours: £4.00
4 to 6 hours: £6.00
7 to 10 hours: £9.50
11 to 24 hours: £14.20
I recommend contacting the venue beforehand to check if any other functions are being held in the centre on the day of the test and whether the car park is likely to be full or not.
There is also a public car park nearby a 4 minute walk away at Brindley Place which charges £15.70 for 24 hours.
