The driving test and Covid -19

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. This number is included in your booking confirmation correspondence.  Please make sure this number is correct.  If you need to update your mobile phone details please do so at least 24 hours before your test.  Otherwise the tester won't be able to call you, your test won't go ahead and you may lose your fee.

To check your details please sign up or log onto our customer portal MyRoadSafety and go to the 'My Profile' page.

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.

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.
