Theory test appointments can be booked, and subject to three clear working days notice, be changed and cancelled using the online booking service or the telephone. You can also download an application form and apply by post. Before you can take your theory test you will need to make sure you have a valid provisional driving licence.

You can apply for a provisional driving licence from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). The application form (form D1) can be obtained from your local Post Office. Once you have a valid provisional driving licence you can book your theory test. Waiting times vary from region to region, but the target is that 95 percent of theory test candidates receive an appointment date within two weeks of their preferred date.
