How to book a driving test and what are the new rules?

DRIVING lessons and tests were temporarily put on hold during lockdown.

But as measures ease, here's what you need to know about booking a test.

Can I book a driving test now?

If you're in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, yes – you can book a driving test.

You can book a test for:

  • cars
  • motorcycles
  • lorries, buses and coaches
  • approved driving instructor (ADI) part 2 and 3 tests

How can I book online?

You can book your driving test online via the Government's website.

If you want to book a test in Northern Ireland, you'll have to use a different service.

You'll need your UK driving licence number, credit or debit card and driving instructor’s personal reference number (if you want to check they’re available) before you start.

You can also check how much your test will cost before you go ahead and book it.

Can I take a driving test in Scotland?

Unfortunately, driving tests in Scotland are still on hold.

They're set to be back on September 14.

What are the changes to practical driving tests?

What are the new coronavirus rules for practical tests?

From now on test-takers must wear a mask while driving.

If you cannot wear a mask you need to inform the DVLA when you book your test.

If you turn up for a test without a mask it will automatically be cancelled.
