Start now on the theory test booking service

Before you start

You can book the following types of test:

  • car
  • motorcycle
  • lorry and bus, including the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) part 1 (theory) and part 2 (case studies) tests

You must be registered to book tests.

What you need

You need your:

  • Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) business ID
  • username
  • password
  • credit or debit card
  • pupil’s driving licence number if you’re confirming their details

Book without a pupil’s details

You can book tests up to 3 months in advance. You don’t have to give a pupil’s details when you book. This is known as being a ‘trainer booker’.

You must confirm the pupil’s details by 4pm at least one clear working day before the test. Working days don’t include Sundays and public holidays.

Example Confirm the pupil’s details by 4pm on Wednesday if the test is on Friday.

Change or cancel a test

You must change or cancel the test at least 3 clear working days before the test date, or you have to pay again. Working days don’t include Sundays and public holidays.

Example Cancel the test by the end of Monday if the test is on Friday.
