coronavirus: driving tests and theory tests

Coronavirus COVID-19

 

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.

Theory tests and driving tests have been suspended to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The suspension lasts:

up to and including 20 April 2020 for theory tests
for up to 3 months for driving tests
This applies to all types of theory tests, driving tests and approved driving instructor (ADI) standards checks.

Theory tests

Theory tests are suspended up to and including 20 April 2020.

You’ll get an email to tell you that your test has been cancelled.

You’ll automatically get a refund. You’ll get an email to confirm this has been done – this may take a few weeks to arrive.

You’ll then have to book a new theory test for a date and time after 20 April 2020 that suits you.

You can still book, change or cancel tests for 21 April 2020 onwards.

Driving tests

Driving tests are suspended for up to 3 months.

Car driving tests

You’ll get an email to tell you when your car driving test has been rebooked. It will tell you the new date and time of your test.

You will not get this email immediately – it should arrive around 2 weeks before your original test date.

It’s likely that your new test date will be around 3 months after your original date.
