The average learner driver has to wait in excess of two months for a driving test appointment at the Derby Alvaston practical driving test centre. Driving instructors in the area will usually try and encourage their pupils to book their driving test about six weeks before they are actually going to be ready. It is usually better to take a few extra lessons then to risk failing your driving test. If a learner driver does fail their driving test, by law in wait 10 clear working days before attempting another one.


The 10-day rule is generally not a problem. The problem is that learner drivers find it very difficult to get earlier driving test dates.

That person driving test appointment will then be available as a driving test cancellation. The second reason a driving test cancellation may appear at the Derby Alvaston practical test centre, an examiner typed to work overtime. The DVSA does occasionally request examiners to work on Saturdays in order to help reduce the waiting times. You have to extremely lucky to be logged on to GOV.UK at the precise moment when either a learner driver cancels the test or whether examiner chooses to work overtime.
