The DVSA are to introduce a more flexible approach to candidates who cancel tests at short notice.
At present, the candidate must give 3 clear working days notice if they wish to cancel or change their test or, they lose their booking fee.
From the 1st April 2014, short notice rebookings can take place if the candidate has:
- a bereavement
- a medically certified illness
- school exams
Members of the armed forces who are called for duty will continue to be offered a refund or new test date.
