How long it takes to get a practical test appointment?
The DSA aims to give you a practical test appointment within nine weeks for most types of driving tests. However, the waiting time varies around the country and throughout the year. So, you might have a shorter or longer wait depending on where and when you take your test.
Your theory test certificate number
You will need your theory test certificate number to book your test. If you have lost your certificate, you should contact DSA. Although DSA does not issue replacement certificates, they will be able to send you a brief letter containing your certificate number. When you contact DSA about your lost certificate, you'll need to give your name and driving licence number. You can find out the different ways of contacting DSA to do this by clicking the link below.
