What happens if you get your date for your driving test but you can't go on that day

Cancelling your test

The most important thing is that you let us know as soon as possible.

Someone else may well be able to take your time slot.

You will not lose your fee if you:

  • have not previously cancelled more than two appointments and you give at least 10 days notice.
  • do not attend because there are dangerous road conditions locally and you advise us as soon as possible on the day of the test.

You will lose your fee if you:

  • give less than 10 days notice
    OR
  • have already cancelled two test appointments

What happens if the RSA cancel my test

In a small amount of exceptional cases we may have to cancel your test at short notice.

This may arise due to:

  • hazardous weather conditions
  • a tester being absent unexpectedly
  • other exceptional circumstances 

In these cases we will arrange another test for you free of charge at the earliest date possible.

We will make every effort to notify you as soon as possible if we are forced to cancel your test so please make sure you give correct contact information to us when you are applying.
