If you retain the old style licence, a valid UK passport must be taken with your driving licence to provide adequate forms of identification. 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 such items will prevent you from sitting the theory test and also lose the theory test 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 Southgate Theory Test Centre in good time as theory test centres have strict test slot times.

Centre has size restrictions on items left while sitting the test. This information is vital but not passed onto the customer prior to attending the centre (where it is only verbally passed on). They even suggested asking the hairdresser on the corner if I could leave my property there, I find this highly irregular. Centre staff were, sadly, more interested in blaming anyone else rather than acknowledging there is a mistake.
