Temporary changes to driving tests for Key workers

May 1st, 2020 by linda

From today (1 May 2020) DVSA is making a temporary change to car and vocational emergency driving tests for key workers, to help reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The changes you can expect are:
Examiners will end emergency tests early if a candidates commits:
• a serious or dangerous fault
• a total of 16 driver faults
This is to help reduce the amount of time the candidate and examiner spend in the vehicle, when the candidate has failed their test.
In these circumstances, the examiner will instruct the candidate to drive back to the test centre instead of continuing for the full time, before they tell the candidate they have failed.
Motorcycle module 2 tests will not be affected by this change.
