To help reduce national average driving test waiting time the DVSA committed to create an additional 150,000 driving test bookings.

The DVSA are doing this by getting more eligible people in DVSA with a driving test warrant card to test full time up to 31 March 2024.

Last week the agency published a blog post from DVSA Chief Executive, Loveday Ryder to update you on:

  • the work done so far to reduce driving test waiting times
  • what we are doing in areas with long waiting times
  • the impact this is work is having on other services such as ADI part 2 and 3 tests
  • challenges we’ve faced such as bad weather

If you missed it last week you can read more information on all of the above in Loveday’s latest blog post on DVSA Despatch.

    Surely one main reason for the lack of tests is the fact that people are booking tests as soon as they have passed their theory and before they have had a single driving lesson.
    This needs to stop it’s absolutely ridiculous and messing up the whole system.
    Also consider companies like pass me fast etc that are booking the whole package before having an instructor available. It’s scandalous.
