Hey everyone!

I’ve had my driving test rescheduled for late September but as my uni will be going ahead as planned and I’m doing a course which requires me to attend, I’m not happy with my test date at all as it’s early in the morning on a weekday and I’m planning on staying in accommodation so it’s all an inconvenience.

I’ve been reading on a few forums that some people have had their tests rescheduled much earlier than they would like and aren’t fully ready, whereas I’m the opposite, I’m completely ready but my test is too far

I was wondering if anyone would be interesting in swapping test dates as someone I know has done the same thing, they emailed gov and managed to swap their date.

My test is in September so if anyone isn’t ready yet and has a test between now and August, I would happily swap.

Thanks for reading

Most places aren't offering driving tests to people if you're not a key worker, in the coronavirus pandemic. It's best to just keep an eye out on the website for tests and see if anything opens up sooner than your current date. A lot of people cancel their tests tbh.

I will say though, the earlier in the day you have your test the better it will be for you. I had my test at 2pm and I spent the whole day worrying about it, I was a bag of nerves. Luckily I passed however I know that if I had gone with an earlier time, I would have been more confident and may have gotten less minor faults. Just make sure you eat before your test and get some energy, I had a banana right before taking my test.

You might want to state what test centre it’s at if you’re hoping to find anyone. And putting it in the title and that it’s a swap as well might attract more of the right people.
