So my driving test was booked for late Feb but kept getting rescheduled and last month they said that they are cancelling again and will email me to pick a date
It’s been almost a month and I’ve heard nothing from them.... anyone else

I heard in Georgia they're letting teens drive without taking the test if their parents say they are good drivers! Wouldn't want to be on those roads. :laugh:

I only know the situation in England. They have re-started driving tests. They are sending emails to applicants whose test were cancelled in chunks, from the earliest groups onwards, to re-book a test. You'll just have to wait, that's what our family's driving instructor told us at least. I recommend reading the government article on it: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavi...d-theory-tests

See because my test was in early March I feel like I should have been emailed by now, like my original test was supposed to be on the 3rd of March

That seems fair. My parent had theirs booked for early March (don't know the exact date) and they got the email today, this morning. So I would say, if you have an instructor or are part of a school, to contact them and see what the situation is, otherwise, wait a few days. When you get the email, you can get a driving test as early as in 3 days, so no need to worry you'll end up having a test in months.

Oh okay maybe I will get mine soon then... I read somewhere that someone phoned in and the woman admitted that they don't really have an order for the tests as the system messed up so its random?

Haha, considering the state of our government and agencies I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case :iiam:

Their offices are closed over the weekend: https://www.gov.uk/contact-dvsa/y/dr...river-or-rider

I'm not sure if they'll still be sending out the re-booking emails though. You'll need your driving license number and your booking reference if you contact them or if you end up getting the email. (found in your original booking confirmation before it was cancelled, should be a series of numbers, 7-10 digits, forgot the exact).

Edit: It seems they have tons of emails and aren't answering the phones. Anyone who has had luck on Twitter has gotten the same reply: "Please DM us your driving... and booking reference...".

I'm in exactly the same situation, my test was booked for the second week in April though so I assume I'll have to wait a bit longer
