Booking your official DSA practical driving test
If you provide Key Skills with your details we can book the Practical driving test for you. Apart from the requirements set out below, we will need to agree dates that are suitable to both you and your instructor.
The quickest and easiest way to book your official Driving Standards Agency (DSA) practical driving test is online. When you book using this official service, you only pay the cost of the test – there is no extra booking fee.
What you will need
When you can book
The Website is:- www.direct.gov.uk
You can book online between 6.00 am and 11.40 pm
It takes around 15 minutes to book your practical test online. You’ll need:
- your valid Great Britain or Northern Ireland provisional driving licence number
- your credit or debit card details
- a theory test pass date and certificate number (if appropriate)
- your driving instructor’s personal reference number so you can check they’re available – but you can book without doing this

If Key Skills books it for you then payment can be made in any method except by card.
DSA can only accept the following cards:

Retaking your test
