Can I take a driving test during COVID-19?

Driving tests NSW

In response to the health advice and risks associated with COVID-19, Service NSW postponed driver testing across NSW at the end of March 2020. On Wednesday 1 July, testing re-opened with online, phone and in person bookings available across the state.

When you attend a service centre for your test, you'll be required to sign a statutory declaration confirming you're well enough to undertake the test. You can download the Driver testing statutory declaration – PDF and have it ready to sign and be witnessed when you visit the service centre. Statutory declarations will also be available at the service centre. 

To ensure the safety of the community, family or friends may be asked to wait outside. Service NSW will also take measures to reduce the duration of a test by immediately returning to the centre if an applicant has been deemed as failing their test.
