Driving test update 


Only essential workers should attend driving test appointments

On the day of your test, you will be asked to confirm that you’re an essential worker. If you are not, the test won’t go ahead. If you are not an essential worker and have an appointment scheduled please cancel your test.

Weather disruptions

Check if your driving test is affected by adverse weather conditions. Tests will be cancelled if conditions are unsafe.

Motor Tax

The paperwork relating to the car is no less important than mechanical checks – motor tax, insurance and, if relevant, NCT should all be current

Motor tax, insurance and NCT checks

Although mechanical and technical checks of your car will tend to occupy your mind in the days leading up to a test and on test-day itself, don’t forget also to check that the car’s motor tax, insurance and, if relevant, NCT are up-to-date.

Remember: actual discs are required; letters from an insurance company or the motor tax office won’t be enough.

Be sure to check not only that the discs are valid but that all details are correct. For example:

  • Does the index number on the discs correspond to the car’s number plate?
  • Is the print on the discs clearly legible?
  • If anything is amiss, get a replacement from the relevant authority in good time.
