The Government has announced the lifting of local lock down restrictions in Leicester from 3 August.

We are reintroducing our services in Leicester using a phased approach.

Restarting training
You can restart car, motorcycle and vocational training straight away if you have carried out the necessary risk assessments and are ready to do so safely . You can find out about COVID-19 risk assessments from your trade association website.

Restarting testing
We will introduce testing using a phased approach::
• Theory tests: Monday 10 August 2020
• Motorcycle tests (Mod 1 and 2):  Monday 17 August 2020
• Vocational tests: Monday 17 August 2020
• Practical car tests: Monday 24 August 2020
• ADI part 2 test: Monday 24 August 2020
• ADI part 3 and standards checks:  TBC

Booking tests
We will start to invite candidates who have a practical car test on hold at the affected driving test centres in Leicester to choose a new test date. This will be done in the order that the tests were put on hold.

We will open the general booking service once we have invited all candidates across England on the backlog to choose a new test date.
Booking motorcycle manoeuvring area (MMA) sessions

ATBs will be able to book MMAs from 10 August. From 10 August trainers will be able to book dates from 15 and 16 August onwards.

Making tests available to trainer bookers

Trainer bookers will be able to book tests via the Trainer Booking Service from Monday 10 August.
