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

Important safety measures which driving test candidates must follow.

The driving test and Covid-19 procedures

While the driving test itself has not changed, there are elements of the service that must now be delivered differently due to Covid-19. This is so that we can protect our driver testers and our customers.

The video below will show you what to expect on the day of your driving test. Please also familiarise yourself with our important guidance information leaflet  as failure to meet these requirements on the day, could result in your test not going ahead.

Pre-test calls

As part of our Covid-19 procedures, your driver tester will call you on the mobile number you provided in your booking application. Please make sure this number is correct, otherwise the tester won't be able to call you and the test won't go ahead.

On arrival at the driving test centre, make sure your mobile phone is switched on and that its settings allow calls from a private number. To check your details please sign up or log onto our customer portal MyRoadSafety and go to the 'My Profile' page.

Motorcycle tests

If you are attending for a motorcycle test you will need to bring an ear piece with you. Please read our Radio Earpieces for Motorcycle Testing leaflet for more detailed information.
