Before you start

You must usually have passed your theory test before booking.

You’ll need your:

  • Great Britain or Northern Ireland driving licence number
  • credit or debit card

You don’t need your driving instructor’s personal reference number but, if you have it, you can use it to check their availability.

You must book by phone if you need an ‘upgrade’ test, eg automatic to manual transmission, or medium-sized lorry to a large lorry.
