To make a theory test booking, you’ll need your provisional driving licence at hand, plus a valid form of payment. There are two ways to book a test, both 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 Sutton Coldfield 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 Sutton Coldfield, 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 payment of the theory test booking, the DVSA will send you an e-mail confirming the time, date, location and 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.


Security and fraud prevention is taken seriously at all theory test centres. Whilst attending Sutton Coldfield Theory Test Centre, you must show the staff your plastic photocard provisional driving licence, or if you have the old type, this must be taken along with a valid passport. If you have the old licence, but no passport, you must apply for a new driving licence.

If you are unable to show these forms of identification, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to take the test, also resulting in a loss of 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 Sutton Coldfield 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.

Write a short review of Sutton Coldfield Theory Test Centre to let other know if the test centre was easy to find, if you went by car, were there parking facilities?

People are nervous enough without the staff making them feel worse ! No need for this sort of attitude !

 by Lynsey

Horrible place, the staff are not welcoming, one girl there made a crack about my name, which is not very professional. The staff need to learn how to smile! The biggest joke about the place is the man on the reception, how he got the job in the first place is a mystery. I'm glad I don't need to go there again.

Staff are so rude no parking discusting

 by Lisa

I came to bring my daughter and found the staff to be very abrupt and almost rude in the way they spoke to people attending to take their test.The lady on the desk could have least crack a smile to make the people a bit more at ease!!!

All pervious reviews correct i thought they were old reviews, but everything said was SO true. No parking only on street if you could find space. No signs outside building to say you were in right place or direct ypu to reception. Once at reception male receptionist made no eye contact, grunted that I as a parent couldnt stay, and pointed us to a door. Once in the testing reception found lady behind desk to be brusk and abrupt no warmth at all. Although there is a waiting area you are not allowed to sit and wait for the person you have brought in for their test! Overall not a pleasant experience, especially for soneone who is stressed about having to do test.
