Driving Test Request

Important Information Before You Begin:

Searching for early test cancellations involves many hrs of admin work. Usually it is a week / two week job for staff to find a driving test (by manually checking the DVSA website over 100 times a day).  Sometimes it takes even longer.

Course booking fee you have paid covers our admin time to search and book your first driving test only.

 If we need to look for additional test, we’ll have to charge you an extra £199 (incl. VAT) for our additional admin time to search again for another test.

Choosing How To Request Your Test:

  1. Fast-Track Option:
  • Looking for a test ASAP? Get a theory test done no later than 1 month before course start date & fill out the driving test request form immediately upon passing theory test, estimating when you think you’ll be ready for the test. If we work on this early, we can expect to get your test within 1-2 weeks from course completion (we get over 90% tests within that timeframe).
  • However, a word of caution: If, for some reason, you aren’t ready for this test, there will be a few months wait for next available slot.  If you need us to look for another test cancellation, a fee of £199 will be charged to cover the additional hours we need to put into the search for 2nd test.
  1. Safe Approach:
  • Start your lessons, get a feel of your progress, and then complete the form when you have more clarity about your test readiness.
  • The drawback to this method is that the wait time for your test is extended, because we only start working on this late, typically a test slot is found within a month (it’s still quicker than the usual 6-month wait).
  • While this might mean investing in a few more lessons to maintain and polish your driving skills, it significantly reduces the likelihood of incurring costs associated with searching for a second test & offers safer, less pressured learning
