Location


Anyone know the town where the driving school is located?

On http://www.britmovie.co.uk/forums/ the consensus is that the town street is a studio set. It is used in the scene where Troon nearly hits an old woman on a zebra crossing, the scene where Fox's boss tells him to sell more cars or he will lose his job, the scene where Troon and Chingford get caught up in a traffic jam caused by a broken-down car, and of course the driving test and bank robbery scene.

In a few shots (eg when Troon and the examiner arrive back at the test centre) there is a continuity glitch: an extra building is visible between the County Bank and a shop (with wooden cladding above the windows) called Brenda's, in the place where there is a side road in other shots.
