Driving Test Centre Phone Numbers

get driving test centre phone numbers -l-plate-snow Bad weather such as snow and ice can result in lots of cancelled driving tests. If there is snow or ice in your area on the day of a practical driving test, you can phone the driving test centre to check if tests will still be going ahead.  Scroll down the page to see the list of Driving Test Centre Phone Numbers.

Call as soon as you can if it’s an early morning test, or phone later in the morning if it’s an afternoon test. If you can’t get through to anyone at the test centre and conditions aren’t too bad, it may be that the examiners are still conducting tests.  If this is the case, the candidate will still need to attend for test as normal to avoid losing their driving test fee. 

If the DVSA cancel the test, the candidate will get a replacement test free of charge but out-of-pocket expenses won’t be reimbursed by the DVSA.  That is why it is important to use the driving test centre phone numbers list can call ahead.

You can expect waiting times for test appointments to increase during spells of bad weather.  Even though candidates who have had their test cancelled will normally be notified of a new date in 3-7 working days, the new date may be quite some time off.

We have created a list of local test centre numbers below.  This list is being updated on a regular basis – if you know of a test centre number that isn’t already listed below (or you notice that one has changed or is incorrect), please leave a comment below or fill in our contact form and we will add it to the list.

*If a test centre and associated number is NOT listed, it’s simply because we don’t have the number for that test centre yet*

If you have any other enquiries such as booking or changing tests, ADI Registrations etc. you will need to use the national DVSA contact telephone number: 0300 200 11 22
