    congrats on the 6000 :thumbsup:

    yes you can on the website, you can cancel and see if there is any that are closer

    Yeah you can change it. Just keep checking the system. You can change the test date a maximum of 3 times.

    Yeah, i canceled mine and selected to do it the next month

    I seem to remember from when I took mine 3 years ago - so could well have changed - if it isn't your first test then you can't re-take your test again after failing within something like a month, even if there is a cancellation spot available.

    Good luck btw, when you pass it's brilliant and brings such independance.

    Oh, and I found it best when I got a cancellation spot (I didn't pass first time!) to phone them up. It may take a while to get through but the people were helpful, gave various options and my driving instructor reccommended doing it this way.

    i had to rebook my test and they gave me some date which was about 3 months in advance, i stalked them by calling them near enough every week, what they do is have tests blocked off incase nurses, police or people working in those type of jobs i.e teachers want a test and if they are not full they then allocate them out to general public, i managed to get a retest in 4 weeks from my fail date, call them and keep asking and very good luck x

    yeh as i realy wanted it in a couple of weeks

    I used to ring them first thing on a morning when trying to bring my son's test forward. Worked twice (out of his 3 attempts to pass). Worth a phone call and if you ask nicely the person
    who answers will tell you shortcut options so you don't have to listen to 5 minutes of Press 1 for this, 2 for that etc.
