CORONAVIRUS UPDATE. PLEASE SEE OUR NEWS PAGE
Covid Update 24/02/2021
We have all seen that the government have produced this roadmap to exit the lockdowns. The date of 13th April is seen as the date that things like motorcycle training will start again. Unfortunately and in common with how efficient they have been at other times throughout 2020 DVSA have announced nothing whatsoever relating to training and testing re starting. So we still are not in a position to start booking candidates. We would love to be able to tell you that we are able to and rest assured we are ready to go as soon as they tell us that we can. We will keep this page and our Facebook pages up to date as soon as we know anything. We are making a list of people waiting. If you want to be on the list please email us rather than ring because we are not manning the office every day.
Continuing national lockdown in England
The government has published its roadmap of 4 steps out of the current lockdown in England.
In its roadmap the Government set out that driving tests and theory tests in England will restart (as part of step 2) no earlier than 12 April 2021.
DVSA is working closely with the government and will provide more information as soon as we are able to do so on motorcycle, vocational and other tests, lessons and training.
Driver, rider and vocational tests booked up to 8 March
To give us the time we need to work with government and the driver and rider training industry to confirm restart plans, we’re rescheduling all driving, riding and vocational tests booked between 25 February and up to and including 8 March.
We'll email the candidates affected by this with a new date and time for their test. If it’s not suitable, they can change it at www.gov.uk/change-driving-test.
Motorcycle and vocational tests booked by trainers will be cancelled and refunded as usual.
If you booked a test for any of your pupils, you’ll receive the email to let you know it has been rescheduled. You’ll need to give your pupil the new details.
In the meantime, the mobile emergency worker service for driving tests will still be available. You can still teach any of your pupils with one of these tests booked.
We thank you for your patience as we finalise more detailed plans for the safe resumption of training and testing in England.
Theory Tests booked up to 8 March
We will also email anyone with a theory test booked between 25 February and up to and including 8 March and ask them to reschedule their test at www.gov.uk/change-theory-test.
If you booked your pupil’s theory test, you’ll need to rearrange it for them at www.gov.uk/book-pupil-theory-test.
In the meantime, the mobile emergency worker service for theory tests will still be available.
Driver and rider lessons and CBT
Driver and rider lessons, must not take place until the restrictions are lifted. This includes CBTs, training for ADI part 2 and 3 tests and standards checks.
We are working with government to understand when lessons and CBT can restart, we will provide more information as soon as we are able to.
Driver and rider lessons for your pupils with a confirmed mobile emergency worker test booking can continue.
Scotland and Wales
We’re working with the Scottish Government and Welsh Government, who are setting out similar plans to the UK government. We’ll keep you updated as these develop.
You can find what financial support is available to you on GOV.UK.

Covid Update 31/12/2020
As you are probably aware, we are all now in a tier 4 area. This means all motorcycle training and testing has been suspended so we have had to close again. We are happy to deal with enquiries but at this time we do not know when we will be re-open. This site will be updated as soon as we know.
Using waiting rooms and toilets in driving test centres
We previously let you know that the toilet facilities in test centres would only be available for candidates or instructors who are pregnant, or who have a medical condition or disability.
Following engagement with stakeholders we will be making toilet facilities available for any candidate, instructor or accompanying driver if requested, when coming for a test or using the motorcycle manoeuvring area (MMA). Anyone using the toilets will be escorted through the building.
People will need to clean the toilet facilities before and after using them themselves.
Waiting rooms in test centres will stay closed until further notice to help with social distancing.
Please arrive no earlier than five minutes prior to your student’s test time and ensure that your student has their
paperwork ready for the examiner.
For MOD 2 tests we ask that the candidate brings along their own earpiece compatible with a 3.5mm jack plug for the examiners Bluetooth set.
There will be no access to the waiting room or facilities and the examiner will meet the candidate outside of the building alongside the Motorcycle bays.
Kitting up and signatures will be completed outside
With regard to Motorcycle tests we ask that candidates wear their ‘buffs’ or ‘neckies’ pulled up across their nose and mouth to reduce the risk of contamination whilst meeting with the examiner and maintain appropriate social distancing.
Feel free to call us and discuss your requirements:
