How to book, change or cancel your theory test appointment

Theory test appointments can be booked, and subject to three clear working days notice, be changed and cancelled using the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) online booking service or the telephone.

Before you can take your theory test you will need to make sure you have a valid provisional driving licence. You can apply for a provisional driving licence from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). The application form (form D1) can be obtained from your local Post Office.

Once you have a valid provisional driving licence you can book your theory test. Waiting times vary from region to region, but the target is that 95 per cent of theory test candidates receive an appointment date within two weeks of their preferred date.
