If you are unable to attend your theory test on the pre-booked slot, 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.


The DVSA will e-mail you confirmation of your theory test date, time and reference number after completion of booking. 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.


Remember to take along a printed version of the e-mail confirmation sent to you by the DVSA on your test day. It’s important you take along your plastic photocard driving licence with you. If you still retain the old style driving licence, this along with a suitable form of identification such as a valid passport must be taken. If you do not have a passport, you must apply for a new-style driving licence and take this with you.

Unless such items are taken, York Theory Test Centre will be unable to conduct the test and you will lose your theory 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. Late arrivals to York Theory Test Centre who miss the allotted time slot will be unable to sit the theory test and will also lose the booking test fee.
