Documents to bring to your driving theory test

Posted on February 15, 2010 by admin No Comments

You’ll be expected to show both parts of your valid driving licence (the photocard and the paper counterpart) at the test centre. If you have an old-style licence without a photo you must also bring a valid passport. If you don’t show the required documents you won’t be allowed to test and you’ll lose your fee.

Old-style driving licences

An old-style licence consists of one paper document which does not display your photograph. If you have an old-style paper licence you must also bring a valid passport with you – no other form of photographic identification will be accepted.

At the test centre

Once you have been registered at reception you’ll go through to the test room. You may not take anything into the room with you; all personal items must be stored in the lockers provided.

Once you’re in the test room you may not talk to or distract other candidates. The computer screen will display your name and the category of test you’re taking.

If you have any problems during the theory test, you should raise your hand to attract the attention of the test invigilator.

Theory test candidate impersonation

Please beware of anyone offering to have someone impersonate you and take your driving or riding theory test for you.

Theory test candidate impersonators, and candidates who accept their services, are breaking the law, and causing other road users to be put at risk.

The DSA Fraud & Integrity Team thoroughly investigate every case of suspected impersonation, and work closely with police to identify offenders and take them to court. A number of impersonators and candidates have been convicted in the criminal courts, and sentenced.
