Driving tests are essential if you want to be driving on the road without breaking the law. Did you know that if you do not take the correct things to the test, your test will be cancelled? Meaning you have to wait longer to get on the road! By taking these items to the test, you are guaranteed to sit your test on that day, if it has been booked and confirmed in advance!
Why do you need to do this?
Over the last year, over 300 students have had their driving tests cancelled as they have not had the appropriate items/documents with them to carry out the test. Resulting in loosing their payment for the test, which is something that no one wants! Oxford students have become the main culprit of not taking the correct documents to their tests. Be the one to break the habit and take the items listed below to your test!
You must have completed your theory test if you are going to sit your practical driving test. If you passed your theory test over two years ago, then you will have to resit this before you take your practical as this will not be valid anymore. You will not be able to sit your practical driving test without a valid certificate saying that you have passed your theory test.
It is a must that you take your provisional license to your driving test as this will prove that you are legal to be on the road. Although it is recommended that if you move house, your address details should be changed. However, if the address on your drivers license is different to where you are currently living, you can contact the DVLA after you have taken your driving test to change this. Your provisional license must be in date, as they only last for 10 years before they become invalid.
That little bit of extra reassurance
In the event that the test centre do not have your test booked on their records, it is recommended that you bring Booking Confirmation with you.
Your booking confirmation could either be a letter or an email sent by the DVLA, including time,location and the date of your test. On your letter will be a reference number, to ensure that your test is defiantly going ahead, you can call up the test centre the day before with your reference number to ensure that it is happening.
