Booking your test

You cannot currently book a driving test because of coronavirus (COVID-19). If you’ve already booked a test, DVSA will email you with a new date. If you’ve failed your test and want to resit it, you can book another test when the booking service reopens.

You normally take your car and trailer driving test when you’ve got a full car driving licence. You do not need to pass another theory test.

The test is sometimes called the ‘B+E test’. Check the rules to see if you need to take it.

To pass the driving test you must be able to:

  • drive safely in different road and traffic conditions
  • show that you know The Highway Code by the way you drive

The national standard for driving cars tells you everything you must be able to do to pass the test. Only take your test when you can do everything without instruction.

There’s no minimum number of lessons you must have done before you book and take your test.
