All driving tests regardless of test centre are managed via the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
Upon booking a practical driving test, the DVSA will send a confirmation e-mail to the address provided. Unfortunately with the many spam filters used, driving test confirmation e-mails can often be seen as junk or worst still get deleted.
The DVSA do however provide a service where you can check the UK driving test date to confirm that it is indeed booked. You are able to use this service to check the driving test date of your practical test between 6.00 am and 11.40 pm.
HOW TO CHECK DRIVING TEST DATE
