My theory test runs out in 2 months, and I am so close to passing my practical driving test. I failed my last one recently due to another driver. However dvsa won't let me book a test before then. I wanted to get one booked and use an app to find a cancellation within the next month or 2. I'm worried I'll have to rebook my theory test again, which I want to avoid due to financial reasons, and because I still have 2 months.

Do you think I'll have to rebook my theory test, or is there a way around it?

You'll have to rebook it unless you can get a last minute cancellation for the practical, yes.

How on earth did you fail due to another driver, were you not driving the car?

You'll need to redo the Theory I suspect, getting a new test within 4-8 weeks sounds extremely optimistic just now :/

Honestly, it’s quite unlikely you’ll be able to get one booked, it is possible, but finding a cancellation might be difficult. I only booked my test recently for a local test centre & managed to get a late September date, but I used the app Testi (paid so I could get notifications) and managed to get an early July date.

It’s definitely unlikely, but it isn’t completely impossible, so you might be best preparing to do theory again Hopefully you’re able to get one though!

One thing to remember about hunting cancellations is that you're often counting on your instructor/car also being available for that slot and by the time you get them to confirm you might have missed an opportunity (Happened to me maybe 4-5 times)
