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...
