Driving test candidates warned on vehicle recalls

Organisation:Driving Standards Agency

Published:12 April 2013 Policy:Making roads safer

Some vehicles are being recalled by manufacturers and can't be used for driving tests until they've been checked and fixed if                                                        necessary.


A vehicle can be recalled by the manufacturer if it has a known safety fault.


There has been a worldwide recall of some vehicles because of concerns about potentially faulty passenger airbags.

Your vehicle will need to be checked and may need to be fixed before you can use it for the driving test if it’s on the list below.

What you’ll need to take to your test

You’ll need to take proof to your test that the vehicle has been checked and, if necessary, fixed.


The proof you bring has to be one of the following:


the actual recall letter or safety notice that has been stamped by the manufacturer or dealer

written proof from the manufacturer or a dealer (on official or headed notepaper) that the car is safe for use in a driving test

Your test will be cancelled and you could lose your fee if you don’t bring the right proof.


Tests booked for 15, 16 or 17 April

If your test is booked for 15, 16 or 17 April 2013 and your vehicle is listed above and hasn’t been checked, your test will be cancelled. However, you’ll be offered another test free of charge.


You still need to turn up for your test as planned to show your vehicle is affected by the recall.
