Coronavirus: driving tests and theory tests

Theory tests

Theory tests are suspended up to and including 20 April 2020.

You’ll get an email to tell you that your test has been cancelled.

You’ll automatically get a refund. You’ll get an email to confirm this has been done - this may take a few weeks to arrive.

You’ll then have to book a new theory test for a date and time after 20 April 2020 that suits you.

You can still book, change or cancel tests for 21 April 2020 onwards.

Driving tests

Driving tests are suspended for up to 3 months.


Book an emergency test if you’re a critical worker

You can still get an emergency test while tests are suspended if your work is critical to the COVID-19 response as set out in the guidelines about workers who are eligible for educational provision for their children. These include:

  • health and social care
  • education and childcare
  • key public services
  • local and national government
  • food and other necessary goods
  • public safety and national security
  • transport
  • utilities, communication and financial services

Emergency driving tests

If you meet the critical worker criteria, DVSA will contact you with a test date.
