Recalled vehicles

Recalled vehicles

A vehicle can be recalled by the manufacturer if it has a known safety fault.

Some recalled vehicles can’t be used for the practical driving test. You need to check if your vehicle is in the tables below if you’re using for your test.

You vehicle will need to be checked and fixed before you can use it for the driving test if it’s on the list.

You’ll need to take proof to your test that the vehicle has been fixed properly. The proof you bring has to be one of the following:

  • the actual recall letter or safety notice that has been stamped by the manufacturer or dealer
  • written proof from the manufacturer or a dealer (on official or headed notepaper)

Your test will be cancelled and you could lose your fee if you don’t bring the right proof.
