Emergency driving test booking service closes

The online service to apply for an emergency driving or theory test if you’re a critical worker has closed today (14 August 2020).

DVSA will continue to provide emergency tests to critical workers who have already successfully applied for a driving test. The agency will email them to invite them to arrange a test appointment online as soon as possible.

When critical workers book their test they will be able to see all available appointments for the next six weeks.

DVSA says that limiting the booking window to six weeks allows it to respond to any change to COVID-19 government guidance on a national and local level.

At present the booking system remains closed to all new non-critical tests. DVSA will let you know when it is reopening the service for everyone. This includes people who:

  • Have now taken a test that was originally cancelled due to coronavirus, but failed and need to retake their test
  • Are taking a test for the first time

Until DVSA reopens the booking service to the general public, only critical workers who have been invited to book a test can use it.

Tests for non-critical workers should not booked.
