Theory test certificates on driving tests

Theory test certificates on driving tests

In our email update on Monday (17 August) we asked you to make sure your pupils brought their theory test certificates to their driving test.

We wanted to confirm that your pupils should still bring their theory test certificates if they have a paper version.

However if they can’t find it, they don’t need to order a replacement before coming to test.

Valid certificate

Your pupils will still need to have a valid theory test certificate before booking and taking their test.

If they don't have a valid theory test pass, they should not attempt to take their test. The driving test pass will not be valid and they will not be given a full licence. 

Find more information about what to bring when taking a driving test on GOV.UK.

Motorcycle tests

Motorcycle module 1 and module 2 candidates will need to bring their theory test certificate before they take their test.
