Everything you’ll need to know to begin
Login to the DVSA website with the details of your driving test booking to view your booking details, click on ‘change’ next to date and time of test or click on ‘change’ next to test centre. Simply follow the instructions. Hopefully you will find driving test cancellations for free and time slots you are looking for.
No you cannot fail the driving test for getting the Show Me Tell Me answer incorrect. Whether you answer them incorrectly or fail to answer them at all, you will not fail the test. If you get 1 or even both of the Show Me Tell Me questions incorrect, you will incur only 1 minor from a possible 15.
You can change your Practical Driving Test appointment six times. After this, you will need to cancel your test and book a new one.
The average waiting time for a practical test is at least 2 months, and at some testcentres is as long as 4 months.
Don’t worry about the wait, though—you can legally drive independently as soon as you’ve passed your driving test. All of this means that you’re free to hit the road straight from the test centre! However, there are some good reasons why you may want to give it a miss.
Whilst for some it may be an ideal solution to have two driving tests booked within a short time from each other in case the first is failed, unfortunately the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) only permit one single practical driving test to be booked at any one time.

It’s a good idea to turn up about 15 minutes before the test is due to begin. This way, you’ll have time to let them know who you are, grab a glass of water, go to the bathroom… All without being hurried, but you won’t be hanging around too long either.
To cancel your test booking and obtain a refund, or alter a test booking, you will have to give 3 clear working days notice (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays) and produce your receipt.
The driving test really is unlike any other test you’re likely to take. It has so many potential pitfalls, high stress and nerves with an examiner sitting right next to you.
