Driving tests set for massive extension with an extra 375,000 exams made available

“It’s great to hear the DVSA will be making 375,000 tests available to book from September 14th until the end of January, even if it serves as confirmation that some learners who are test-ready will now have to wait until next year to take their test.

“Coronavirus has placed many services under extreme pressure and we do understand the difficulties the DVSA has faced in re-opening test centres and then dealing with an enormous backlog of driving tests with fewer examiners available than usual.

“But, for many learners, the last few weeks have been a merry-go-round of failed attempts to book a test and hours waiting in an online queue that goes nowhere.

“There is an additional cohort of learners, whose theory test certificates either expired during lockdown or in the time since, who will now have to pay to re-take their theory test before they can even attempt to book a practical test.
