DVSA says the driving test booking service is unavailable until 8am on Tuesday 1 September. This is due to the fact that all available test slots were filled on Wednesday 26 August.
The driving test booking service reopened on Wednesday following unprecedented demand that meant the service had to be taken offline for essential maintenance.
Only a limited number of driving test appointments were available during the next six weeks when the service reopened. This was because:
- People who had a test cancelled because of coronavirus were given priority to book a test within this time
- Social distancing measures are limiting the number of tests DVSA can carry out
- Some key worker tests are still being carried out as a priority
