Driving Lessons Milton Keynes – Beware of Fake Booking Sites

Some people are being conned by what are called fake websites when booking your theory or practical test.

They will charge you over the odds to book you a test.

FAKE TEST BOOKING SITES

After a number of driving lessons in and around Milton Keynes you do not want to spend more than is necessary on your driving test.

There many unauthorised sites, which will book you a test but charge you over the odds.

direct.gov.uk  is the only official theory and driving test booking website.

Other websites offer test booking services, but might charge extra administrative fees on top of the Driving Standards Agency’s (DSA) fee. Those websites are not run by or connected to DSA or Directgov.

DSA recommends that all learner drivers book their driving test through the official booking service on Directgov by visiting

http://www.direct.gov.uk/drivingtest

 

Things called  something like:

www. book a driving t**t online .bb.xx etc .com

www. booking a practical T**T on line .uk.eu blah.com

www. book a T**T now blah blah  .uk

are not the real DSA site.

Obviously, names have been changed but I hope you get the picture.

Sites like this may book a test for you but will charge a mark up. They will probably get you the test centre you want at Bletchley, Milton Keynes.

They may even get the date you want but they cannot get anything you cannot do for yourself.

THEY ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL but :

THERE IS ONLY ONE GENUINE TEST BOOKING SITE

The only official website is this one

http://www.direct.gov.uk/drivingtest 

You can call but there is a long menu to go through, but by talking to a person you may be able to get exactly the time you want.

When a test has to be cancelled by the DSA they will give you another test date. At the time of the test they will tell you, that you will be offered another test.

It may be in your interest to call and speak to someone – i.e. get your foot in the door first, and you will be able to talk to a real person and get the time and date that will suit you and your instructor best.

This website link will give you information about unofficial sites.
