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 Slough 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 Slough, 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.


Theory test centres take security seriously and you must ensure the photocard provisional driving licence is shown to the staff before you’ll be able to take the test. If you hold the older style paper licence, a valid passport must be provided along with your paper licence at Slough 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 Slough 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.

Agreed there is no parking at the test centre but in all honesty it does state this in the booking confirmation email. It is the best test centre I have been to as the staff are accommodating and pleasant. The staff more than make up for the grottiy surroundings. A good experience.

Absolutely awful environment. Dropped my daughter, went inside for 2 mins to find where she was supposed to go, came out to a parking ticket from some private parking company. Presumed when it said private parking it was private for those using the test centre. Sat and watched the man give out lots of parking tickets to people who have no idea they are not supposed to be parking there. Total scam. The building is very run down, my daughter could not find a toilet - eventually found one after having to find a key. A member of staff in the ground floor office to the right of the driving test office was just rude. Horrible and expensive experience!! On the plus side the male receptionist in the driving theory test office was very nice and professional. However if you can go else where do - even if it means driving some distance.

Absolutely fine and kept proffessional. I went in, done my test, came out and straight away received my results. I had to go twice because first time I failed, and no one made any comments regarding that. Very respectful service. Keep it up team!
