Changes to confirmation delivery when you book a Theory Test
Please note that from December 2011, the DVSA no longer send out a letter of confirmation via post. These are now sent electronically via email which means you will get your confirmation come through much quicker than before.
If you book your Theory Test over the phone and don’t have email, the DVSA will still post you a confirmation letter. You will not need to bring either the letter or email confirmation to the Theory Test centre, just your driving licence.
Beware of sites that charge when you book a Theory Test
Please be aware when you book a Theory Test online that you only use the official booking service. There are many websites out there that will offer to book your Theory Test for you, but will also charge you a booking fee on top of the test fee. Some sites will charge as much as £50 or more for something that you can do yourself within a few minutes.
