Data shows learners lost £1,139,489 during lockdown
Jan 7, 2021 —
Throughout two national lockdowns, data shows that 49,543 learner drivers who were looking to pass their car driving test have now lost their theory test certificates due to them expiring. There are still no plans in place to help these learners in England, Wales and Scotland. This is despite the fact that Northern Ireland have agreed an extension to theory test certificates for learners who face the same situation.
We're continuing this petition in the hopes that the same extension is seen throughout the whole of the UK for all learner drivers affected.
