All you will need to make a theory test booking is your provisional driving licence, all you’ll need a few details from this. You can book the theory test via one of the two methods detailed below. The Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) are responsible for managing all theory test bookings and Pearson Professional conduct the theory tests. Whilst making a booking, be sure to mention if you have any reading or hearing difficulties as help is available during the test.

Book a theory test by telephone
Booking a theory test can be made via the automated telephone line. You do not need to speak to anyone although there is an option to speak to a DVSA member of staff should you have any concerns or questions. Theory test bookings can be made in Sheffield by visiting the book a driving theory test section.

Book a theory test online
Booking a theory test via the internet is often the most popular due to the system displaying theory test time and date availability, allowing you to select a free slot. To book your theory test in Sheffield, see the book a driving theory test section for all DVSA theory test booking information.


You are entitled to reschedule the theory test for an alternative date and time, or cancel the test to receive a full refund. Please allow for a minimum of three working days notice (including Saturdays) for either of these to be possible.


After you have completed your theory test booking, you’ll receive an e-mail from the DVSA. Check your junk mail in case you didn’t receive it. This e-mail will confirm the theory test date appointment 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.


Your photocard provisional driving licence must be taken to your theory test appointment. If you hold the older style paper licence, a valid passport must be provided along with your paper licence at Sheffield Theory Test Centre. If you do not hold a passport, you will need to apply for a new driving licence which has the plastic card.

Failure to provide these forms of identification will result in you being unable to take the theory test and also lose your test booking fee. 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. Arrive at Sheffield Theory Test Centre in good time as theory test centres have strict test slot times. Late arrivals that miss their allotted time slot will forfeit the theory test and lost the test booking fee.

Staff were incredibly rude and unhelpful. One man wouldn’t even let my 16 year old daughter wait for her mum to pick her up inside the waiting room (with nobody in) so made her wait in the rain outside alone. Very careless, rude tone.

Staff absolute disgrace my daughter was literally a min late for her appointment and was turned away and not given a refund she is 25 weeks pregnant and ran through town to make sure she was there on time after leaving an hour and a half from home to get there. She was left in tears.

Staff were kind and helpful, however for some reason cannot revise in text centre before going in


I find it dodgy that l have to fail 3 times with 1 point each time. Is this Center just racking in some cash ???

 by Mrs Green

My daughter has taken her theory test 4 times now and always seems to fail by one point on the multiple choice, why are the candidates not given a copy of the questions they get wrong so they know for the next time they take the test. She is constantly revising and i find it unbelievable that she keeps getting a fail by one point. I have stood outside waiting while she takes the test and have spoken to numerous people who always seem to fail by one point. Is this coincidence?
