Driver testing and COVID-19

In response to the latest health advice and risks associated with COVID-19, the following changes have been made:

  • Driver testing reopened across the state on 1 July 2020. Bookings can be made online, via phone or in person.
    Prior to sitting the driving test, applicants will have their temperature taken using an infrared hand-held thermometer.
    • Note: Service NSW is experiencing a high demand for this service and hired an additional 50 driver testers across the state to increase the number of tests available to customers. Due to the high volume of requests, tests may book out quicker than usual, we are continuing to monitor the service and are releasing new bookings regularly.
  • Computer-based knowledge test (DKT, HPT) applicants are required to wear masks when undertaking their test at the testing terminal.
