Whilst I fully understand this decision I have called upon the DVSA to make provisions for such events whereby additional tests are provided for those who cannot now take a driving test.

DVSA services suspended on 19 September 2022 following sad death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Our thoughts are with His Majesty King Charles III and the Royal Family at this sad time.

In line with National Mourning guidance our services will continue during the mourning period.

We are suspending all but our most essential services on 19 September due to the Bank Holiday and State Funeral, allowing individuals, businesses and other organisations to pay their respects to Her Majesty.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this period of national mourning.

Practical tests

We will contact your pupils with a test booked on 19 September 2022 to let them know their test has been suspended. Tests will be automatically re-booked for the first available date. If you booked a test for your pupil on 19 September you need to let them know that their test will not go ahead.

Theory tests

All theory tests have been suspended on 19 September 2022. We will be contacting all of your pupils who are affected to let them know how to choose a new date for their theory test.

ADI part 2 and 3 tests and standards checks

All ADI part 2, 3 tests and standards checks have been suspended on 19 September. We will contact all affected ADIs and PDIs with the earliest possible new test date.

You can move your rescheduled test on GOV.UK for ADI part 2 and 3 tests or by emailing for standards checks.

Driving lessons

There is no obligation on you to suspend your business during the National Mourning period. However you may wish to consider closing, especially on the day of the State Funeral, however this is your choice.

Online services

Our online services will be available as usual on Monday 19 September.
