Short Notice Test Cover & Out Of Area Tests (Less than 6 weeks notice)

Emergency Driving Test Cover and Preparation Lessons.
(Subject To Instructor Availability)

This service provides driving instructor preparation lessons with combined car hire for short notice driving tests.

Our emergency driving test cover is designed to help:

  • Test standard learner drivers who’s own driving instructors are no longer available to take them for driving test.
  • Test standard learner drivers who are ready for their driving test and have found an earlier test date.
  • Test standard learner drivers who have booked a short notice driving test and require driving test cover.
  • Test standard learner drivers who have found a driving test cancelation.
  • Test standard drivers who have lost their licence and have a short notice test that they need preparation for.

This service is not designed for people who have:

  • Never undertaken driving lessons before or who have limited driving experience on UK roads.

Our emergency cover instructors are only able to take drivers to test who are able to undertake a minimum of a 3 hour preparation lesson on a different day in advance of their driving test.

Our emergency cover instructors can’t just take someone for their driving test without assessing their current standard of driving on a separate day first.

Terms and Conditions of Last Minute Tests

If it becomes apparent within the 1st Hour of the lesson that the driver isn't driving at test standard or has the car fully under control e.g stamping on the brake pedal / driving into kerbs / driving through give way junctions without looking or approaching with too much speed / unable to reverse under control / using excessive speed / not showing awareness of who has priority at road junctions / or any other style of driving whereby the car isn’t under control - the driving instructor will refuse to allow his / her training vehicle to be used for the driving test.

Payment for last minute tests must be made in advance to confirm the booking - no refund is given if the instructor has to refuse use of his / her training vehicle for test due to a sub standard style of driving displayed which is contrary to the style needed to pass the UK driving test.

Please only use our emergency driving test cover and preparation lesson service if you have experience driving at the UK driving test standard.
