Update on Driving Test Services
From 19 October 2020, DVSA will be increasing the number of car practical driving tests from 5 to 6 tests each day. Waiting time for candidates wanting to book their car practical test will be reduced.
Driving Test Times
As DVSA is increasing the tests from 5 to 6 a day, examiners might be running a bit late for some driving tests. Candidates will need to be patient and wait for their test until their examiner is available. This will allow examiners to take necessary precautions to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.
Weekend Driving Tests
From October 3, 2020, some of the DVSA examiners will begin the 6 driving test program on Saturdays. Just to remind candidates that their driving test may be running late as a result of examiner’s measures to stop the further spread of Coronavirus. Candidates need to wait with their car until the examiner is free.
Keep Everyone Safe
According to driving instructors who provide manual and automatic driving lessons in Birmingham, DVSA’s top priority is to keep everyone safe and they will carry on with the Government COVID-19 guidelines for car driving tests.
Driving instructors and candidates wipe, clean, and ventilate the inside of their car just before their driving test. Candidates need to remember that their driving test may start a little late as the examiner will do an extra clean of surfaces, he/she needs to touch.
Registration for Online Business Service
DVSA had temporarily stopped new registration requests for the online business service. The driving test booking system is getting back to normal. DVSA has decided to reopen and accept new registration requests for online business service from 5 October 2020.
