Update from DVSA
This is today's update from DVSA regarding lessons, rescheduling tests and how to rebook your theory.
Continuing national lockdown in England
The government has published its roadmap of 4 steps out of the current lockdown in England.
In its roadmap the Government set out that driving tests and theory tests in England will restart (as part of step 2) no earlier than 12 April 2021.
DVSA is working closely with the government and will provide more information as soon as we are able to do so on motorcycle, vocational and other tests, lessons and training.
Driver, rider and vocational tests booked up to 8 March
To give us the time we need to work with government and the driver and rider training industry to confirm restart plans, we’re rescheduling all driving, riding and vocational tests booked between 25 February and up to and including 8 March.
We'll email the candidates affected by this with a new date and time for their test. If it’s not suitable, they can change it at www.gov.uk/change-driving-test.
Motorcycle and vocational tests booked by trainers will be cancelled and refunded as usual.
If you booked a test for any of your pupils, you’ll receive the email to let you know it has been rescheduled. You’ll need to give your pupil the new details.
In the meantime, the mobile emergency worker service for driving tests will still be available. You can still teach any of your pupils with one of these tests booked.
We thank you for your patience as we finalise more detailed plans for the safe resumption of training and testing in England.
Theory Tests booked up to 8 March
We will also email anyone with a theory test booked between 25 February and up to and including 8 March and ask them to reschedule their test at www.gov.uk/change-theory-test.
If you booked your pupil’s theory test, you’ll need to rearrange it for them at www.gov.uk/book-pupil-theory-test.
In the meantime, the mobile emergency worker service for theory tests will still be available.
