Theory tests cancelled up until 21st June

Theory tests cancelled up until 21st June

All theory tests in England from 15 to 21 June have been rescheduled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.DVSA will update the industry with a start date for theory testing in England as soon as they are able. What DVSA are doing They are emailing anyone with a test booked from 15 to 21 June to let them know it has been rescheduled.  On 29 May the agency notified that tests in Scotland and Wales will be rescheduled up to and including 21 June 2020. This is in line with government guidelines in the respective countries. If you’ve booked a test for your pupils If you have booked a test for any of your pupils during these dates, you will need to contact them to let them know that their test has been rescheduled. You can do this on GOV.UK. You will need your driving licence number to do this. You’ll get another email from Pearson Vue. You do not need to pay again to do this. Emergency theory tests An emergency theory testing service will still be available to those who have a critical need to take a test, such as NHS and social care workers. Please do not call DVSA customer service centre as they will not be able to help. Stay up to date on the latest information on GOV.UK. The situation will be monitored and DVSA will let trainers and candidates know if there is further need to cancel more tests. Driving lessons Driver, rider and vocational trainers should continue to limit instruction to key workers preparing for an essential test. DVSA provided the industry with advice on this in April and will provide further information about broader training as soon as they are able to.

See our video above where DIA’s CEO talks about the challenges surrounding resuming tests. DIA has asked, and continues to lobby for, the extension of Theory and CBT certificates in the light of a prolonged shut down of these services.
