Home > ADI Part 2 > If your test is cancelled or there's bad weather
Your driving test can be cancelled or stopped because of bad weather, problems with your car, or for other reasons.
Driving tests are not carried out in dangerous weather conditions, such as when the roads are icy or if there’s flooding, thick fog or high winds.
Call your test centre if there are any of these conditions on the day of your test.
The phone number for the test centre is on your booking confirmation email.
If your test cannot go ahead
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) will:
- automatically book the next available date for your test
- send you the details within 3 working days - it can take up to 7 days if there’s a long period of bad weather
You can change the date you’re given if it’s not suitable.
You cannot claim for any out-of-pocket expenses if your test is cancelled because of bad weather.
