You must give at least 3 clear working days’ notice to change your test date or you’ll have to pay again. Sundays and public holidays don’t count as working days.

You can change your appointment up to 6 times - after that you’ll have to cancel your test and book a new one.

Check your driving instructor is available on the new time and date.
