If you have reading difficulties
When you book your test you should say if you have a reading difficulty.
You can then ask for an English voiceover. This lets you hear the test instructions and questions through headphones.
You can hear the questions and possible answers as many times as you like.
Extra time to take the test
You can ask for more time to do the multiple-choice questions part of the test.
To do this, you must send proof to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) that you have a reading difficulty. The proof could be an email or letter from a:
- teacher or other educational professional
- doctor or medical professional
