Familiar Territory: Can I Take My Own Car to My Driving Test?

Taking your driving test in a familiar vehicle can make a significant difference in your confidence and comfort levels during the test. But can you take your own car to your driving test? In the UK, the answer is yes, as long as it meets certain DVSA requirements.

In this article, we'll delve into the specific requirements your car must meet for it to be used in a driving test. These requirements include aspects like insurance, safety features, and vehicle size, among others.

Using your own car for the test can have several advantages. Not only does it allow you to take the test in a car you're comfortable with, but it also ensures that you're familiar with its controls and handling, which can be beneficial during the test.
