Driving test entitlement checks We wrote to you earlier in the week to let you know that we were temporarily changing the way entitlements checks were being carried out when you booked a driving tests. Due to the exceptionally high number of tests being booked at any one time, the entitlement checks were being carried out after the booking had been made. As the number of bookings being made is returning to normal levels, from tomorrow at 6:30am (Thursday 17 September 2020) the entitlement checks will now be done at the time of the booking. The NJC continues to be dedicated to help you in these challenging times and we hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy. Please feel free to contact us for help and support.
