Reopening the online business service (OBS) From tomorrow (Friday 21 August), we will be reopening the online booking service for everyone. This means all new candidates will be able to book a driving test in England and Wales. Test centres in Scotland remain closed, except for motorcycle tests. Driving lessons in Scotland will resume on 24 August and will let you know when driving tests can resume soon. Booking tests through OBS From tomorrow you will also be able to book tests for your pupils using OBS. Currently, we're only making test slots available up to 6 weeks in advance. This is so we can react quickly to any changes in government guidance about coronavirus. If you cannot book a test for your pupil at their preferred test centre, please check other nearby alternative test centres for availability. New test slots will be made available every week, on a rolling 6 week basis. Making sure your pupils are prepared We expect the demand for booking driving tests to be really high. We know many of your pupils will be keen to book their test, but it’s important they speak to you first, to check they are ready and are well prepared. We encourage you and your pupils to spend time practising on a variety of roads and in different driving conditions before booking their test.
