Driving Test Waiting Times

DVSA Practical Test Booking Waiting Times

Driving tests are booked on the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) live system.

The Intensive Courses4U Team will endeavour to book your test subject to availability, as near to the end of your intensive course.

Intensive Courses4U Ltd cannot guarantee that your practical test will be at the end of your intensive driving course. You will be sent a test confirmation with a link to enable you to monitor for a cancellation date. (If Required)

Please confirm with your driving instructor before making any required changes to your practical test time, date and test centre location. You’re driving instructor may have other commitments on the date and time that you intend to change it to.

Alternatives to the test waiting times:

  • Proceed with your intensive course on the booked dates and arrange with your driving instructor to holdback an agreed amount of course hours, which can then be completed prior to the practical test date.

  • Agree with your driving instructor alternative intensive course dates to coincide with the practical test date.

  • Monitor the DVSA life website for cancellation that often appears, but are not guaranteed.

  • Select a different destination to take your intensive course and practical test. You will be required to meet in the new area each day for your intensive course to better prepare you for your practical test.


Running Costs to a Practical Test:

The running costs to a practical test depend on the following:

Prior to test: Number of hours booked before the test booking time.

  • This refers to the number of driving lessons booked and agreed by both parties on the day of the test leading up to the test time.

On Test: Time required for the test. (Approximately 1 hour)

  • This refers to the time spent on the driving test and the debrief with Examiner regarding the test result.

Return Home: Time required to be taken home.

  • This refers to the travelling time required to return to an agreed destination.

The amount of time required must be booked before the last date of change for the practical test. (Must be agreed by both parties)

The cost can either be deducted from the booked course hours or the additional amount can be paid separately. (Must be agreed by both parties)
