Car driving tests will restart in England on 22 July 2020 with safety precautions in place – other types of tests will restart before then.
Car driving tests will restart in England on Wednesday 22 July 2020 with new social distancing and safety precautions in place. These will only be for people who had their driving test cancelled because of coronavirus to begin with.
Arrange your driving test appointment
If your car driving test was cancelled due to coronavirus, you were sent an email with a new date and time for your test.
The new date you were given will not go ahead. This includes if the new date you were given was from 22 July. Do not go for your test on that date.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will email you again soon to ask you to go online and choose your preferred date and time for your test.
When you arrange your test, you’ll need to say if there’s a good reason you cannot wear a face covering when you take your test.
Booking a new driving test
You cannot currently book a new driving test if you did not have a test booked before lockdown.
Driving tests will be carried out for people who had their test cancelled because of coronavirus as a priority.
