Driving Test FAQs

It’s important that all of our learner drivers understand what documentation they need in order to book their driving test. We’ve aimed to answer as many questions as we can, in as much detail. Below you’ll find a list of some of the most frequently asked questions about the easiest route to get your driver’s licence!

What documents do I bring with me to my driving test?

You will need to bring proof of your UK driver’s licence and your theory pass certificate to show the examiner you have the legal right to take your driving test.

How do I book my driving test online?

The best way to book your driving test online is via the Gov website. Here you’ll be able to pick the best dates for you, based on your availability. Remember always check your driving instructor is free on that date, too.

How many lessons before I can book?

The law does not require you to have had a minimum amount of driving lessons before you book. However, we recommend you wait until you’re completely confident so that you don’t waste time and money by rushing it.

Can I drive any car on my test?

You can drive any vehicle providing you have the proper insurance and, make sure that the car meets the minimum standards to be used during a test. We recommend always using the car you’ve been learning to drive in.

What happens if I fail?

If you do fail, you are able to book a follow-up driving test after 10 days of your initial test date. It’s important that you do not rush to re-book your test. We say focus on where you went wrong and have an additional lesson with your instructor, first.

How many minors can I get on my driving test?

The DVLA allow learners 15 driving faults (also known as minors) but without any majors (serious or dangerous driving fault).

How can I cancel my driving test?

If for whatever reason, you have to cancel your driving test, it’s important to remember the following:

  • Your driving licence number
  • Give at least 3 full days to get a refund
  • Theory pass certificate
