Driving test update

Please note that our customer service agents cannot book or cancel driving tests over the phone or offer any updates on waiting times, so we kindly ask that you do not telephone our call centre for this information. 


Test appointments are solely by invitation

Test appointments are by invitation only so if you’re already on the driving test waiting list, no further action is needed. We’ll contact you directly when slots become available.


If you have received an invitation to book a test, need to cancel a test, or wish to join the waiting list, please go ahead and sign in to MyRoadSafety now.


Urgent tests for essential workers only

Under current restrictions, we can only offer tests to essential workers. If you’re an essential worker who has already applied for a test and completed all your driver training please fill in this form and we’ll prioritise your application.


If you’re not an essential worker and have an upcoming appointment scheduled, please cancel your test. Don’t worry, you won’t lose your fee and you will be kept on the waiting list. Know more

What to do if you have a disability, are hard of hearing or cannot speak English

Disabilities & communication problems

You should notify the RSA’s Driver Testing Section in advance if you:

  •  have a severe hearing problem
  •  are restricted in your movements or have any disability which could affect your driving
  •  drive an adapted vehicle

This will ensure you don’t face any delays on the day of your test.
You should also note that if the vehicle you use for the test is adapted to suit a disability (eg, it has additional controls), this will be recorded on your full driving licence.


If you cannot speak English or are deaf, you are permitted to have an interpreter with you for the first (oral) part of the test. They are also permitted to be present at the technical checks, secondary controls and in-car checks and hand signals (which will be conducted at the desk). This person must not be your driving instructor, and may not accompany you during the practical element of the test.
