All theory tests on Monday 1 June have been rescheduled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Tests in Scotland and Wales will be rescheduled up to and including 21 June 2020, this is in line with government guidelines in the respective countries.
We are preparing test centres for a safe return to testing for all candidates. Social distancing measures are being put in place.
We will update you with a start date for England as soon as we are able.
What DVSA are doing
We are emailing anyone with a test booked up to and including 21 June in Scotland and Wales to let them know it has been rescheduled.
We are emailing candidates in England with a test booked on the 1 June to let them know it has been rescheduled.
If you’ve booked a test for your pupils
If you have booked a test for any of your pupils during these dates, you will need to contact them to let them know that their test has been rescheduled.
You can do this on GOV.UK. You will need your driving licence number to do this. You’ll get another email from Pearson Vue. You do not need to pay again to do this.
Emergency theory tests
An emergency theory testing service will still be available to those who have a critical need to take a test, such as NHS and social care workers.
Please do not call our customer service centre as they will not be able to help. Stay up to date on the latest information on GOV.UK.
We will be monitoring the situation and we will let you know if we need to cancel any more tests.
Driver, rider and vocational trainers should continue to limit instruction to key workers preparing for an essential test.
We provided the industry with advice on this in April and will provide further information about broader training as soon as we can.
