Use this service to:
- find an earlier driving test (sometimes called a ‘cancellation appointment’)
- move your driving test to a later date
- change which test centre you take your test at
You must give at least 3 full working days’ notice to change your test or you’ll have to pay again. Monday to Saturday count as working days but Sundays and public holidays do not.
When you must not go to your test

- you or someone you live with has COVID-19 symptoms
- you’ve been told by the NHS Test and Trace service that you’ve been in contact with a person who has COVID-19
- you’re self-isolating because you recently entered the UK
If your test is in less than 3 working days, email DVSA with the subject title ‘COVID-19 short notice cancellation’.
