Can you help me book my Theory or Practical Test?
Yes, we can provide you with the prices and website details of how to make an online booking - just speak to your Instructor. Please be careful of websites offering to book tests for you - you should never pay more than the official Test Prices.

How long is the wait for a Theory Test?
This varies from area to area; typically it is between 10 and 15 days.

How long is the wait for a Practical Test?
This can vary dramatically from area to area, normally the wait is between 8 – 10 weeks.

How many lessons will it take to get to Test Standard?
How long is a piece of string?  Seriously, everybody is different and the amount of lessons you will need will depend on a lot of factors such as previous experience, the frequency of your lessons, whether or not you have single or double lessons, how quickly you respond to instruction given, whether or not you are able to go out for additional practice sessions with friends, parents etc. With Pass 2 Day you are able to meet your instructor and make sure that driving really is something that you want to do.  At the end of your first lesson your Instructor will be able to give you a general indication of how many more lessons you will need to get to test standard.

Do your instructors conduct a practical driving mock test?
Yes, Your Pass 2 Day instructor will use role play as if they were a driving test examiner so that you can experience what the driving test will be like.  You will even receive a pass form and feedback on how you did to ensure you are ready for the real thing.

Can I still take driving lessons even though I have points on my licence?
Yes you can, providing that if you had received a ban it has served its time.

Will I lose my licence automatically when I pass my test with six or more points on my licence?
No, although any penalty points you have received before passing your first practical driving test will have an effect on your full driving licence.
If you go on to receive an additional six or more penalty points in the two years after passing your practical driving test, under the ‘New Drivers Act, your driving licence will then be taken away from you and you will need to re-sit your theory and practical test again.

What happens when I get my licence back having been banned?
When you have passed both tests again, the penalty points will remain on your driving licence, even though they may not affect the amount of points that you are still 'allowed' to receive before losing your practical driving test. (You will need to receive further points bringing the total to 12 or more for the licence to be revoked within a 3 year period), as per any drivers points on a licence.
The new licence issued after passing this re-sat driving test will be subject to the New Drivers act again and you are subject to the licence being revoked if you again receive six penalty points or more in two years.
