Theory tests will take place with social distancing measures in place to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Helping the country to get moving again
Gareth Llewellyn, DVSA Chief Executive, said:
It has been vital that lessons and tests only resume when safe to do so and in line with the government’s advice.
We know this has been a tough time for the whole country including learners and instructors but I am pleased to announce the first step in restarting some of our services in Scotland.
Tests for critical workers have continued during the lockdown and I would like to thank all those instructors and examiners who have continued to work to help deliver tests for those who have done so much to help us during this terrible pandemic.
