Important reminder about new theory test centre locations
A new theory test service for England, Scotland and Wales will start from Monday 6 September. Please remember, especially those who may have already taken a theory test, that many theory centre locations will change from 6th September 2021.
All pupils with a theory test booking from 6 September onwards will have received the correct address for their theory centre appointment on their booking confirmation email.
We recommend that pupils check the theory centre address they have been given on their confirmation email in plenty of time before their test, and before travelling to the centre.
If they do not turn up for their new appointment at the time and location they booked, they will lose their fee and will need to book and pay for a new appointment.
The theory test is not changing
While we have made changes to our theory test centre network, the theory is not changing. Practical driving centre locations are not affected by the changes.
For booking enquiries about theory tests taking place from 6 September, please contact DVSA customer contact centre:
- Telephone 0300 200 1122
- Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm
