DVSA Update: Vocational Lessons and Tests in Wales

Following the Welsh Government’s announcement on 19 February, all areas of Wales will remain in lockdown (alert level 4) and residents must stay at home to save lives.

These restrictions will remain in place until at least the next review on 12 March. Read more about the lockdown measures on GOV.WALES.

Vocational lessons and testing

Vocational lessons and tests must not take place until the restrictions are lifted. If you have booked a test for any of your pupils during this period of restrictions, it will be cancelled and you will be automatically refunded.

Vocational lessons for pupils with a confirmed mobile emergency worker test booking can continue.

Driver CPC

Driver CPC training should be delivered remotely wherever possible until restrictions in Wales are lifted. However, where necessary, essential Driver CPC periodic training can be delivered by employers to their own employees using their own trainers on their own site.

Theory tests

All theory tests will be suspended until the restrictions are lifted. DVSA will email anyone who has booked a test and is affected by this to let them know their theory test is on hold and that they will need to reschedule.

If you booked your pupil’s theory test you will need to log into the booking system and rearrange their test for a new date and time.

This does not include booked theory mobile emergency worker service tests, which will take place as arranged.
