2. Documents to bring to your test

You must bring:

  • your theory test pass certificate (or confirmation) if you’re not exempt from taking the theory test
  • both parts of your driving licence - the photocard and the paper counterpart

You must bring your signed driving licence and a valid passport if you have an old-style paper licence.

Your test will be cancelled and you’ll lose your fee if you don’t bring the right documents.

Lost driving licence

You’ll need to apply for a replacement driving licence if you lose yours. This could take up to 15 days. You may have to rearrange your test if this happens.

Lost theory test certificate

Contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with your name and driving licence number as soon as possible. DVSA doesn’t issue replacement certificates, but will send you a letter containing your certificate number.
