You will also need your theory test number to book a driving test and this can be found on your theory test certificate.

How else can I book my driving test?

There are other ways to book a driving test. You can call 0300 200 1122 to book a test over the phone. That said, this is an automated service and you do not actually speak to a human. This line is open at the same time as the online booking service (8am – 12pm) but it can be more restrictive on the driving test dates that can be found. Booking your driving test over the internet is often far easier than using the phone – after all, no one likes to use automated phone services!
