Driving test changes: who it affects

As you know, the driving test in England, Scotland and Wales will change later this year.

From 4 December, all car driving tests will follow the new format. This includes if:

  • Your pupil fails a test before then, and retakes their test from 4 December 2017
  • Your pupil’s test is cancelled or moved for any reason, and their new test date is from 4 December 2017

DVSA have allowed you to share information about how the changes will work with your pupils, by making it accessible by clicking the link.

You can also read all about the changes on the agency’s blog posts.

Today, DVSA have published the Transport Research Laboratory’s evaluation of how the changes impact learning to drive, test performance and post-test driving, based on the trials held in 2015 and 2016.
