Book a theory test by telephone
One method for booking a driving theory test is via the automated telephone booking line. Though this system is automated, a DVSA staff member can be reached by listening to the options available at the start of the process. Theory test bookings can be made in Peterborough by visiting the book a driving theory test section.

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


The DVSA state that a minimum of 3 working days notice is required if you wish to cancel the theory test and receive a full refund on test fees. If you wish to reschedule the theory test at Peterborough, the above requirements of 3 days notice must also be met.


The DVSA now send e-mails not letters to confirm your theory test booking. Check you provide the correct e-mail address so that you receive confirmation on the date, time, address and reference number of your theory test. If you have not received an e-mail, check your junk folder. 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.


In order to provide proof of identity, the DVSA Peterborough Theory Test Centre require that you display your photocard provisional driving licence when arriving to sit the theory test. If you have the old style paper paper driving licence, a valid UK passport must be provided. If you have the old style licence, a valid passport must be taken along.

Without these forms of identification, it’s unlikely the test centre staff will allow you to sit the test. If you have misplaced your licence, contact the DVLA who will send you a replacement. See the learning to drive section for information on obtaining a new licence. Arriving at Peterborough Theory Test Centre in good time is essential as the test centre has strict test slots.

Professional and friendly staff. Made the whole testing experience very easy when feeling nervous.

Very difficult to find although I had been to the main building there before but there was no signage. The staff in Stuart House main building were extremely helpful. Staff in Pearsons VUE test centre were just plain rude. The test had been cancelled due to systems failure. There was no apology even though we had to make a 60 mile round trip.
