Frequently Asked Questions

Why hire a car for my driving test?

There are many reasons why you might want to hire one of our cars for your driving test.

  1. You may not have access to a car.
  2. Your car may not have a valid NCT or tax disc.
  3. There may be a warning light on your dashboard.
  4. Your car may be a little older and you are worried that it may not be accepted by the tester.
  5. You want the peace of mind that hiring a perfectly maintained car form Driving Test Car Hire will undoubtedly provide.

Why might my car be refused by the driving examiner?

Each driving tester has the discretion to not conduct a driving test if they feel the car they will be sitting in for the driving test is not road legal or roadworthy. Legitimate reasons for not conducting a driving test include no tax, insurance or NCT. Any non working or faded bulbs will bring any driving test to an immediate stop. Tyres with a tread depth below 1.6 mm or not correctly inflated will also bring your test to a grinding halt. In fact if the tester is unhappy with anything he sees he can refuse to conduct the test. In the event this happens you will forfeit your driving test fee and have to reapply again.

Will using Driving Test Car Hire improve my chances of passing the test?

Of course, you will be expertly coached by the best instructors in the business and be assured of using a perfectly maintained car for your driving test.

What do I need to bring for my Driving Test?

Just your learner permit.

What if I need to cancel?

Once you give 10 days notice we will be able to refill your slot. As a result of this we will fully refund your deposit immediately. If you give less than 10 days notice your deposit will be forfeit.

What if RSA postpone my Driving Test?

Occasionally the RSA will postpone a driving test. In this event contact us immediately and we will of course change your car hire time to the new date at no cost to you.

Can I request a specific model of car?

Sorry but this is not something we can facilitate . What we can guarantee is that the car provided for your Driving Test will be up to the standard that the examiner will expect or your money back.
