Driver testing services were significantly disrupted during the pandemic, which has led to a high demand for learners who are now wanting to take their driving test. The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is working hard to provide as many practical driving test appointments as it can.

The table below shows the number of people who had a practical car driving test booked and were awaiting to sit that test. Data for 2 September 2022 cannot be provided as reports are generated weekly. Therefore, the closest comparable data has been given.
