Today is the day the driving test has changed, but it unfortunately seems that the strike action may be taking quite a toll on people who’d booked their tests for today and tomorrow.
Did today not go as planned?
If you are one of the people whose driving test has been postponed today, then we know this is a stressful and upsetting time. But, do not let all your hard work go to waste! Having to reschedule is frustrating, but don’t let it get you down; you were good enough to take your test today, which means you’ll be good enough for when it next comes around.
Don’t forget, if you’ve turned up at the test centre to find your examiner is on strike, then you don’t need to rebook your test – the DVSA will be in touch within 5 to 10 working days to rebook it.
I’ve got my test tomorrow – is it the same?
The strike is planned to take place today and tomorrow, which means there is a possibility that tomorrow, your test won’t go ahead.
- Keep calm, and try not to worry about whether or not your test is cancelled before you get to the test centre. You will find out exactly what is going on when you get there.
- Keep yourself in the mindset that you are taking your test today. You’ve worked hard to get to this point, so remain positive and optimistic that today, you will pass! If you are taking your test today, a negative attitude is going to affect your driving.
We know that for a lot of learner drivers, today is a huge and probably very nerve-wracking day. The new driving test changes are coming into effect, but also many examiners are on strike, impacting on people whose tests are booked for today and tomorrow. Whether your test goes ahead or not, please stay positive and remember that you can do it! Our life motto for today is ‘Life is tough, but so are you’ ðŸ’ª
