    I've left it late for my theory test annoyingly and now the closest date in my area is the 20th of August for my theory. I wanted to take my driving test before the 25th of September because if I get the grades I should be going uni end of septemberish. So knowing my theory is on the 20th could I book my test in advance or do I have to wait till I've passed my theory to book a test?


    Thanks

    An appointment for the practical test cannot be made until the theory test has been passed. That's the law, I'm afraid.

    No, because you need your theory test pass number or something when you apply.

    Stuck, i'm afraid - however, it's worth ringing up to see if you can get a cancellation. I don't know if it applies to the theory tests as much, but definitely the practical ones will end up having some slots free at some point if you ring up in the mornings and ask. No guarantee, but you stand a chance at sneaking it in before uni. My friend failed and got a cancellation slot about 2 weeks after; it's entirely luck based as to whether it will happen or not though.
