    Hi I was considering doing the 20 hours crash course but have just looked and they are saying about 12 weeks to sit your test?

      Hi there,

      Thank you for your enquiry. During the summer holidays test waiting times can get a bit silly, and some areas are longer than others. Most test centres at the moment are working on a 4-8 week wait. If you’d like to give us a call and we can check the waiting time for your area. Our number is 0800854140.

      Many Thanks
      Michelle Partington
