What to take to your test
You must bring:
- your UK driving licence
- a face covering, unless it’s not safe for you to wear one
- a suitable car
- a pupil
You should also bring a log of the training you’ve been doing to qualify as an approved driving instructor (ADI).
Your test will be cancelled and you will not get your money back if you do not take the right things with you.
Reasons why you must not go to your test
Do not go to your driving test if you or your pupil have:
- coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or someone you live with has symptoms
- been told by the NHS Test and Trace service that you’ve been in contact with a person who has coronavirus
- you’re self-isolating because you’ve entered the UK in the last 14 days
Wearing a face covering
You and your pupil must each bring and wear a face covering for your test, unless it’s not safe for you to do so. For example, because:
- you have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability
- wearing it would cause you severe distress
You need to say if you cannot wear a face covering when you book your test. Otherwise, your test will be cancelled if you arrive without one.
You can take it off during your test if you need to avoid harm or injury.
Your driving licence
You need to apply for a replacement driving licence if you lose yours before your test. This could take up to 15 days to arrive.
If you do not have a photocard licence
Bring a valid passport and your paper licence, or your trainee driving instructor licence (if you have one).
If you have a licence from Northern Ireland
Bring the Northern Ireland photocard and paper counterpart.
