Mike the Driving Instructor: Lessons in Woodley, Earley and East Reading

The Practical Driving Test in Reading

There is still a massive backlog of driving tests at the moment so trying to book one is quite difficult. The DVSA only book up to 6 months in advance. The best time to try to book a test is very early on a Monday morning (6am onwards) as this is when they release the next batch of tests.

You might be tempted to book a test at short notice to "Have a Go" but please note I will not let you use my car if...
  • I do not think you are ready
  • You have not told me when your test is - with enough notice
  • You have not had regular lessons leading up to the test



  • "How much does it cost?"

    £62 (Mon-Fri)   -   £75 (Sat)


    "How do I book or change my driving test?"

    gov.uk/book-practical-driving-test
     
    gov.uk/change-date-practical-driving-test
     
    or Tel: 0300 200 1122 (8am-6pm)
     
    You can change your driving test time without losing your money (provided you do it 3+ working days beforehand). So if there is not a test available as soon as you would like, you should book what is available then keep logging on and seeing if there are any earlier test slots


    "Which Test Centre should I use?"

    Reading
    I do not know, or work at any other test centre


    "What time should I book the test for?"

    Any time "after 10am" to avoid rush hour and the school run


    "What is your ADI number?"

    278400
    Please always quote my Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) number when booking your driving test as this will ensure that your test does not clash with another of my pupil's test times


    "When are you available for my driving test?"

    I am not available before 10am or at weekends.

    Available after 10am
    Not Available
    Available 10->12
    Available after 12
