Driving test waiting times

Because of test backlogs, and the requirement to prioritise essential workers, fewer customers are being scheduled on a first come first served basis at this time. Because of this, average waiting times at test centre level do not show an accurate picture of how long a particular individual might be waiting for an appointment and therefore are not being published. We are conscious of the need to increase test capacity and work is ongoing to do this and get waiting times back to a ten-week average over a period of time.

How long do I have to wait

Please see important Covid-19 update here.

 

As a result of Covid-19 measures, our capacity to undertake driving tests, at pre-Covid 19 levels, has reduced.

 

In view of this, we are prioritising customers based on their application date and some customers may experience a delay in receiving their test date.  

 

Candidates making an application today may be waiting 25-30 weeks for their test. 

 

If you are waiting for a test date, we will contact you once we reach your date of application.
