Are Driving Lessons Worth It

How can I cancel my driving test and how many times can I cancel without losing my money?

In the UK, there is no set limit on the number of times you can cancel your driving test and rebook without having to pay an additional fee.

However, you will be required to pay the full fee for the test when you first book it. If you need to cancel or reschedule your test, you can do so by contacting the Driving Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) at least three clear working days before your scheduled test date.

As long as you reschedule within three working days before the scheduled test and you have a valid reason for cancelling. You will be able to rebook the test without paying an additional fee.

If you cancel with less than three clear working days’ notice or fail to attend the test without a valid reason, you will lose your fee and will need to pay again when you rebook.
