The world of motoring is constantly changing. In recent years, we’ve seen major changes to the driving test, new rules and regulations surrounding car insurance, and the announcement of a future ban on petrol and diesel cars. Add that together with new models and emerging technologies, and there’s a lot to keep up with. That’s why we’ve created a dedicated news section to help you stay in the loop with all things driving. You’ll find all the latest news from car manufacturers, government bodies and other companies in the motoring industry, as well as useful breakdowns to show what it all means for you.

BREAKING: Tests to End Immediately If Candidates Fail

Few driving tests are currently going ahead as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Those emergency tests that do take place are already a little different to normal, with extra protective measures in force.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (in isolation, we hope!), you’ll know that the world has been turned upside-down by COVID-19 and we’re all having to come to terms with a new way of life. Social distancing is the new norm. Sadly, isolation and learning to drive don’t really mix.

When you pass your practical test, your licence is yours to keep. The theory test, however, is a little different. Once you pass, you start a two-year period in which you’re eligible to take a practical. If you don’t pass within this timeframe, you’ll need to retake your theory. All of this can be stressful enough at the best of times. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has meant some learners have seen their practical test postponed with just weeks left until...
