Provisional Licence Holders Are Waiting
With thousands of Driving Test applicants looking to move on from a Provisional Licence to a Full Licence it is not uncommon to have to book a test space well in advance or wait obscenely long for a Driving Test.
Some instructors will even set a date for the test 1st, then schedule lessons in after.
Though some parts of the UK you’ll only be waiting a week or two, there are some places that will have you wait 3 months before a Driving Test becomes available.
