Booking a theory test at Fareham Theory Test Centre is easily completed via one of two methods detailed below. Before making a booking, ensure you have your driving licence at hand as you’ll need some information from this. The DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency) manage all UK theory test bookings. Telephone and e-mail contact details of Pearson Professional who conduct the theory tests can be found within the booking section.

Book a theory test by telephone
An automated telephone line is available to book a theory test. To arrange a theory test in Fareham, please see the book a driving theory test section for telephone booking details. Though this number is automated, you can be put through to a member of the DVSA staff if you have any queries.

Book a theory test online
Due to vacant theory test slots being displayed online, internet theory test booking is a popular option. To book your theory test in Fareham, see the book a driving theory test section for all DVSA theory test booking information.


If you are unable to attend the theory test for the arranged booking time, you may reschedule providing you allow a minimum of three working days notice. The same notice applies if you wish to cancel the test in order to receive a full refund.


Make sure you provide the correct e-mail address whilst making a booking as you will receive an e-mail from the DVSA once you have completed the theory test booking. In case you can’t find it, check your junk folder. The e-mail will confirm the test booking time, date, address and provide you with a reference number. Although not essential to take to the theory test centre, it’s advisable to print this e-mail to show to the centre staff if any problems arise.


Allow yourself plenty of time to arrive at Fareham Theory Test Centre as the centres operate strict allotted time slots meaning tests cannot overlap each other. Turning up late may see you refused entry and you’ll lose the test booking fee. Your provisional driving licence photocard must be taken with you to Fareham Theory Test Centre on the day of your test.

If you retain the old style licence, a valid UK passport must be taken with your driving licence to provide adequate forms of identification. Failure to provide such items will prevent you from sitting the theory test and also lose the theory test fee. If you have misplaced your licence, you’ll need to contact the DVLA to order a new one. See the learning to drive section for information on obtaining a new licence.

Had a test booked on 2nd Dec, turned up and wifi was down. So they cancelled it, even though i paid through DVLA apparently its not their problem now and they have NO contact details for Fareham... Avoid booking here as they are also very grumpy and makes you feel un-easy before going in

The man who works at the desk is incredibly rude! No need to be that rude to nearly everyone who walked in. People are already nervous. Rude, insultibe, no customer service & when I spoke to my instructor he said he's been told the same by many pupils who attended that centre. Would rather give 0 star but giving 1 star due to the very polite and warm woman staff members.

Rude grumpy man at desk and difficult to get in the building

Couldn't get in the building today and no one would answer the buzzer!! This made me 6 mins late so they cancelled my test and now I can't rebook for 3days also lost the fee! As the place looks like a building site and the building is locked and if u look up the building online it states it opens at 9!! Not helpful when you have an 8am test! So all in all not at all happy!
