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 Staines 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 Staines, 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. Your provisional driving licence photocard (the paper counterpart is no longer required) must be taken with you to Staines 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.

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 Staines 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.

Not happy with one lady she rude definitely. In the test centre she is distracting all people including me when I am concentrating on my test. I put my hand up she was so unhelpful. And she keeps telling me what to do after when I know. Staff need to be trained discipline.
