Before you start

You can book these types of driving tests:

  • car
  • motorcycle (module 1 and module 2)
  • lorry and bus, including the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) part 3a, part 3b and part 4 tests

You must be registered to book tests.

Book without a pupil’s details

You can book some tests up to 10 weeks in advance without giving your pupil’s details. This is known as ‘trainer booking’.

You can only do this for these types of tests:

  • motorcycle (module 1 and module 2)
  • lorry and bus, including the Driver CPC tests

You must confirm the pupil’s details by 9pm at least one clear working day before the test. Working days do not include Sundays and public holidays.


Confirm the pupil’s details by 9pm on Wednesday if the test is on Friday.

Change or cancel a test

You must give at least 3 full working days’ notice to change or cancel a test, or you’ll have to pay again. Monday to Saturday count as working days but Sundays and public holidays do not.

Find out when you can get a refund if you change a driving test or cancel a driving test at short notice.

If you regularly cancel tests

You may not be allowed to book trainer booking tests if you cancel either:

  • 25% or more of your tests
  • 20% or more of your tests within 10 clear working days of the test
