Following the NI Executive’s review of COVID-19 restrictions, driving theory tests have resumed.
Driving theory tests from 26 December 2020 until 22 April 2021, inclusive, were suspended. Instead of cancelling your test, DVA have rescheduled it for 60 days later, into a temporary placeholder appointment.
If your theory test was rescheduled into a temporary placeholder appointment, you would have been contacted to let you know how to reschedule this appointment.
DVA have increased the number of daily appointments available for booking, through longer opening hours.
More appointments have also been made available at an extra temporary test centre in Ballymena.
