Booking a theory test at Glasgow 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
One of the theory test booking methods is by telephone. An automated telephone service is provided for theory test booking in Glasgow. To book your theory test, please see the book a driving theory test section for telephone 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 Glasgow, 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.


Ensure you provide the correct e-mail address whilst making your booking as the DVSA will send you an e-mail 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 Glasgow 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 plastic photocard must be taken with you to Glasgow 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 lost 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.


Reviews provide an excellent indication of what to expect from a product or service. Write a short review of Glasgow Theory Test Centre so that others have an idea of how easy it was to find the test centre, were the test centre staff professional and polite, how were the test candidate facilities? That’s just an example, but of course don’t forget to tell us if you passed. Reviews are quick and simple, no sign up and only your nickname will be displayed. To ensure your review meets our guidelines, please read our Terms and Conditions prior to submission.

Took my son here for his test and was met with the rudest man ever! On 2 occasions he spoke to me like I was a child in front of a full waiting room! And then he did the same tomy son when he completed his test! He was abrupt, rude & honestly made me feel incredibly sorry for anyone who has to encounter him before or after there test!

Sat my theory test here and felt like I'd entered a military academy as soon as I stepped into the centre. The first receptionist was extremely rude to both me and my mum who she told to leave right away. Needless to say the hostile atmosphere didn't help my initial pre test nerves. I've done countless uni exams and the atmosphere has always been professional yet not intimidating - the staff need a course in manners and common decency!

Very rude lady at the second desk. Displayed the typical nasty attitude you dread but somehow always encounter at these sorts of things.
