Get ready for changes to how you book and take your test this year.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is all set to make significant changes to how and when you book your driving test. After a consultation run by the agency between January and March in 2022, several proposals are now set to be introduced. These include:

1. Longer waits
What? If you fail your driving test, you will now need to wait 28 working days before being able to take another car driving test. Currently, the wait is 10 working days.

Why? To ensure that learners spend more time practising before attempting another test so they have a better chance of passing.

2. Shorter cancellation times
What? If you need to move or cancel your driving test, you now need to notify the DVSA at least 10 full working days before your test date to avoid losing your test fee. Currently, you can give notice three full working days before your test.

Why? If you need more practice, the move will give the DVSA more time to cancel your test and reallocate it to a learner who is good to go.

3. Eyesight checking
What? Currently, an eyesight check is carried out at the beginning of your test in good daylight, requiring you to read a number plate on a parked vehicle from 20 metres away. Get it wrong three times and the test is cancelled on the spot.

Why? Policy makers want the change so eyesight checks can be carried out in any level of light. This in turn could expand the availability of driving tests in different conditions and at other times of the day.

4. Certification displayed
What? Driving instructors will have to display their professional certificate in their windscreen when bringing you to your test.

Why? This will enable the DVSA to note your performance and how it reflects on your driving instructor. This will help the agency to assess if the instructor’s pupils are making any similar faults. The information could also be used to offer you performance information about instructors in your area when searching for one.

5. Pass certificates
What? Instead of receiving a paper version of your pass certificate after a successful theory or driving test, you will only be given a digital pass certificate.

Why? This will save on costs for the agency as well as create a more sustainable solution.

Many of these measures are part of the DVSA’s ‘Ready to Pass?’ campaign, which has been designed to improve pass rates by asking learners if they’re truly prepared to take their test. You can learn more about the campaign here.

“With more than half of people failing their driving test, it is clear more needs to be done to make sure learner drivers only take their test when they are fully prepared. These new measures will help make sure test-ready learners find appointments and give those who fail more time for more practice.”

• Loveday Ryder, CEO of the DVSA.

Fantastic first lesson back Sam ! Well done 👏


Have a look at this information and we will know more after this date... please be patient... Thankyou


We have had a communication from the DVSA to say that unfortunately we are still in lockdown (as I’m sure you are all fully aware of) and that means no lessons,no practical tests and no theory tests.
Please be patient, things will return to normal at some point but the most important thing is to stay safe!
Take care of you
Take care of family
Be safe x

Also an update on private practice... essential journeys only... please be careful as you can be stopped, questioned and possibly fined x


Please be aware that private practice advice has changed and is strongly advised for essential travel only!


Following Boris Johnson’s announcement of a full lockdown driving lessons and tests will be not available until at least mid February. If you have a test booked for the next few weeks keep an eye on your emails for notifications from the DVSA.
I will be in contact with all my students just prior to lessons restarting.

Safety first
Take care



So just a clarification for anyone learning to drive after the announcement by Boris

Tiers 1,2 and 3 can still have lessons and tests both practical and theory will still go ahead

Tier 4 ......No lessons or tests ( you will be contacted by email regarding your test for it to be rearranged)


And so we have had the guidance ... All driver training ( lessons) and tests are suspended from 5 November until 2 December


Just to let you know that I will be working until the official email from the DVSA comes through


Big Congratulations to Mollie Egan on her 1st time pass today... you can now relax and off to uni you go xx


Theory test documents now a requirement once again when going for your practical driving test, KEEP YOURS SAFE. If you have lost or damaged yours send an email to the address below along with the information they require to issue you with a new document. No Theory Test Certificate. NO PRACTICAL TEST!

So we have guidance and we can go back to work from 4th July 😀
Pupils are you ready???


To all my current and future pupils... we have now had a steer from the DVSA and regrettably as an industry we are not yet safely able to work at the moment. 😔
I am looking forward to the day that we can restart working towards your independence on the road as soon as safely possible 🚙
The DVSA have now suspended all driving tests and once they and the government have worked out when and how the system can return to normal then driving lessons will be able to resume.
Please stay safe and of course patient in these unprecedented times.

I look forward to the day Iife can get back to normal.

Take care
