Yesterday (25 June) we announced driver and rider instruction can restart from 4 July in England.
We also confirmed that all car tests can restart from 22 July. This will give learner drivers time to have refresher lessons and practice with you before taking their test.
Motorcycle and vocational tests booked by a trainer can restart from 13 July.
Motorcycle and vocational tests booked directly by pupils can restart from 22 July.
What this means for tests
As set out in the letter from Gareth Llewellyn on 15 June, to make sure your pupils can take their test at a convenient time, in a way that’s fair to everyone, we will be putting all tests ‘on hold’.
This means all driving tests that are booked in will not go ahead on the original or rescheduled date. This includes if the new date your pupils were given was from 22 July.
We will email candidates again soon to ask them to go online and choose a new date and time for their test. They will also be able to cancel their booking if they want to.
These candidates will be given priority for the available appointments.
