They’ve already extended it by 8 months in Ireland so why not in England it’s no fair if they don’t...

Ireland already got the extension, to do same in England mps have to make an amendment to law as ireland did within a month. It is possible! it is a matter of mps saying yes to it. Petitions on change aren't taken to parliament. Gov petitions are.
If you want to extend validity of theory test, if you have signed the petition above on change.org please now go to https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/307479 to sign for gov to do it!

Lockdown has created this problem. Everything else has been extended so this should be extended too

My daughter had her test cancelled twice during the pandemic, now her theory certificate has run out at the end of May I don’t think it’s fair that she will need to redo it before booking her test again!!

learning to drive is expensive, it seems unreasonable not to extend the theory certificate in these difficult times.

It's effectively the equivalent of the 'mortgage holiday' and completely logical.
