DVSA – Important information about test and trace

The NHS test and trace service is part of a national strategy to identify COVID-19 infections and prevent its spread.

Although this specific guidance relates to England only, the 4 administrations are working closely together to have a consistent and joined up approach to testing and tracing.

We are supporting the service by sharing details of examiners and candidates with them as required.

If your candidate tests positive after attending a test

If your candidate tests positive for COVID-19 up to 48 hours after taking a test they must provide the NHS Test and Trace service with the DVSA email address test.and.trace@dvsa.gov.uk and follow the government guidelines on self-isolation.

This information is provided to candidates in their end of test summary.

If you test positive after a part 2, part 3 or standards check

If you test positive for COVID-19 up to 48 hours after taking you ADI part two or three test or standards check you must provide the NHS Test and Trace service with the DVSA email address test.and.trace@dvsa.gov.ukand follow the government guidelines on self isolation.

If the pupil you bring to take part in your part 3 test or standards check tests positive for COVID-19 up to 48 hours after, they must also provide NHS Test and Trace service with the DVSA email address test.and.trace@dvsa.gov.uk​ and follow the government guidelines on self-isolation.

This information is provided to you and your pupil after the test or check.

Tracing apps

As part of the government’s coordinated response to COVID-19, NHS Test and Trace has developed the new NHS COVID-19 app.

It is now available for download to all residents of England and Wales, and we strongly recommend that everyone over the age of 16 downloads and uses it.

The Scottish government COVID-19 app is also now available to download.

We continue to follow the latest guidance across England, Scotland and Wales and review how it affects our services and customers.

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.
