April 2015: Drivers in some regions are currently having to wait longer than normal before being able to sit a restricted or full practical driver test. The Transport Agency apologises for any inconvenience or additional stress this is causing.We are working very closely with the testing provider to increase the number of tests that are available - including having testing officers work overtime and moving testing officers to areas with higher demand.We recommend that you book the first available test at your preferred test site as shown in the booking system. If you need a test sooner than what is available, check this website regularly as tests do become available due to cancellations.
Another test fee is payable if you change or cancel your test appointment within two working days of the test date. (The two working day period excludes weekends, public holidays, the day of the test and the day you make the change).
