you need to just keep checking the website. just keep logging in and you shall eventually find some, its a pain i know. take note though that you're most likely to find some after about ... 5 days, more after about a week. i dont know why this is, but thats usually when they show up too. im looking aswell :/

just keep refreshing. I booked a test for 10th May on saturday. I then found one for 28th April on Sunday. Yesterday I then found one for 13th April and then a few mins later I found one for the 9th April (next friday)!

So you just gotta keep looking. Granted I had the help of the drivingtestcancellation software but you dont have to use it if you have the time to stay on the computer and keep refreshing.

yes and you also have the option to choose a different centre to look at their dates. Nothing will change unless you select 'save changes'

You can only change the date 3 times

Did you fail your test?

Just you have to wait 10 working days before you can take another one. People cancel their tests in the week or so before, so you can't see those on the DSA website because you're not eligible. After a week or so, you start to see cancellations that you can take.

I booked my test on Sunday after I failed mine. The earliest date available was 28th June. I then looked briefly yesterday morning, and this morning I kept the browser open and and kept refreshing every 15 minutes. Three came up for Sat 10th April at various times, and I clicked one and it had already gone. I then managed to catch the remaining one. It's best to ask your instructor what dates he can't do in the coming weeks so you don't have to worry about asking him beforehand.

Just keep refreshing!

As soon as somebody cancels it appears on the site (when I changed mine, my previous date then became available on the change screen)

I managed to book mine on the 20th for the end of May, get one for the start of May, then the start of April, and then very luckily for yesterday (Monday). From 8ish weeks to 9 days. Just keep checking, you've got to be quick! Don't even think about it when you choose it, just choose it, you can always not click the save button, then somebody else can go for it after. Snooze = Lose

Im not so sure how valid this point is as I failed the Saturday just gone and I got a date for next Friday (yesterday) which is exactly 10 working days after my previous test

yes, I did fail my test. I have now booked my third one. I am hoping There will be an avaliable slot in the next two weeks. I am
uch a nervous wreck when it
comes to driving tests, but I did extremey well
in the second, obviously besides on serious. But yeah, I just need to keep checking for cancellations. Every time
I am on the Internet I just open a tab of the dsa booking checker ad I just frequently refresh until I am off the Internet. I also will go on my
mobile whilst I am at college, so it's pretty handy.

well i got my test for the 9th april using it but it can be argued that if ur on the screen long enough and refresh quick enough, then you can get a cancellation without using it

I just couldnt be bothered to sit on the screen on the time, i have studying to do as well so for me it was very handy! and i would not have found the test for next friday if i gave up looking until the evening

Id say its really up to you whether u get it but it worked for me

I think the online booking is playing up. I keep getting: "We could not authorise your payment card with the details you gave us. Please use a different card or call us on 0300 200 1122" and I've tried several different cards.
