Before you start

You’ll need your:

  • Great Britain or Northern Ireland driving licence number
  • application reference number

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 at the new time.

You can use your theory test pass certificate if you don’t have your application reference number. You can find your theory test pass certificate number online if you’ve lost your original letter.
