Driving test: cars
Booking your test
You can book your driving test when you’ve passed your theory test.
You do not need to pass another theory test if you’re upgrading an automatic car licence to a manual licence.
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.
Change or check your test details
You can change the date of your test after you’ve booked. This includes if you cannot or do not want to attend because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
You can check the details if you’ve lost the email confirmation you were sent when you booked your test.
Rebook your test
Rebook your driving test if you failed your test and want to resit it. You have to choose a date at least 10 working days away.
