COVID-19 Drive-Thru COVID tests

Do you need a swab for travel or work, but don't want to swab yourself at home? Our Drive-Thru service, based at Thorpe Park in Leeds is perfect for you.

All tests are performed by trained healthcare staff and you stay in your car for the entire process!

Please note: For patients that require a swab before travel, the report we issue by email is your "certificate" of results to fly  - We do not issue a separate "fit to fly" document as the report supplied is all you need.

How to


You will book an appointment and pay via our online booking system here.

If you are booking tests on behalf of multiple family members please book one at a time.

This service is not suitable for you if you are currently showing symptoms of COVID-19. If you are symptomatic for COVID-19 please book a test at an NHS testing site.


Please do not call us for advice on the correct time to get a test before travel, as our team are unable to answer this question. Please take guidance from your airline as well as country you are travelling to.

The process

Arrive at our Thorpe Park Clinic site and our healthcare assistant (HCA) will discuss the testing process with you.

You will need to sit in the driver seat or in the passenger seat behind the driver

The HCA will then inform you about consent and the terms and conditions of the test.

The HCA will then take your swab.

This will then be sent to our laboratory partners.

You will receive your results the very next day.
