How to book a practical driving test on DVSA website?

Driving test cancellations services assist you in rescheduling an already booked driving test to an early date.

Important: Remember to schedule the theoretical exam before taking the practical examination.
If you haven’t booked and passed the theory test, it’s not possible to get the practical test.
We advise you to visit the DVSA website, where you can get a theory test booking.

If you have passed the theory and are moving on to the practise part, here are the steps on how to book your driving test on the DVSA website:
