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

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.
