Pls help!!! I have lost my theory test pass certificate and I was just about to book a cancellation test for this Thursday. I have read some threads which say that some examiners don't even ask to see this certificate but this sounds a bit risky to me.
I'm just wondering if anybody has been through the process of applying for a replacement letter through the gov website before for this reason and if so how long this could possibly take to come?? I don't want to book the test if the certificate will take weeks to come and I also need to know whether I will have to rearrange my original test date (27th Feb) should the replacement not come by then either.
Please help!!!

July 2016, and I know friends who have sat this year and were never asked for theirs. I don't know if it depends on test centre or not.

I have been an ADI for over 7 years and have never known the certificate to be asked for at practical test time. I tell my pupils not to bother taking it. No guarantees but I wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you! I rang my driving instructor in a state and she reassured me that I definitely do not need it and has encouraged me to bring my test forward so I'm gonna trust her on this one! Thank you so much!

I think it might depend on the test centre TBH? My best friends instructor told her to not even bring it because she didn't need it and she wasn't asked, and now my instructor is saying the same so I think for an instructor who uses a test centre multiple times a week must know it well! Perhaps some test centres tend to ask more than others? Hence why all the people you may know might have been asked as im assuming you were all tested locally to yourself?

It's required, you aren't allowed to sit the practical test without it. It is about nothing but driving.

This is theory test fraud and it is unlawful . There are Cameras in test centres specifically to compare the face of the test taker to the face on the licence. Otherwise good luck.
