    What he is asking can he see whats available? Before paying for it. My son booked a test when you started taking bookings again he booked in for the 31st July, its now been cancelled and the next available slot is October Just over 2 months away. Its a little unfair.

  3. Theory test availability is arranged by Pearson who run the theory test centres. New test slots can become open and you can take an earlier time if one does. Due to the current situation and the long period of time of tests not taking place, there will be a lot of candidates booking their test now and it’s going to extend waiting times.

    My theory will run out on 11.12.21 as I will need to do it again. Can I book another one before the expiration? Or I need to wait untill it’s out of date?
    Thank you

  8. Hi Carla,
    Yes, you can retake your theory test up to 6 months before your current test certificate expires. Additionally, if you were to fail the they test, your old certificate would still be valid up to the point that it expires.
