    Hi,

    I've got my practical test on Monday, however I've lost my theory test certificate. I have the test certificate number / reference however, as the gov.uk website has their own portal for it.

    https://www.gov.uk/find-lost-theory-...ificate-number

    Do I need the certificate on the day? - Whats the deal with this? - I rang DVSA to get replacement, and he said it won't come in time, however he said that a lot of people sit without?... is this at all credible to justify to the examiner if this comes up? As I have my reference number for my theory pass certificate.

    Thanks in advance!

    I also brought my certificate but my instructor straight away said "You won't need that".

    My instructor also said it's because you won't be able to book a driving practical test without actually passing the theory test first.

    When I did my test, all I needed to show was my provisional ID and the paper counterpart.

    Don't worry, I had my test today and was panicking last night when I realised my theory certificate was missing but I didn't need it, you only need both parts of your licence

    I took mine to my test, but wasn't asked for it, only both parts of my provisional licence. You'll be fine

    I never had to show mine on any of my 4 tests.
    But id still take the reference number just in case.
