Wearing glasses with face coverings on test

Wearing glasses with face coverings on test

pupils must wear a face covering during training and going for their driving test, unless they have a good reason not to. This includes if:

  • they have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability that means they cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering

  • putting on, wearing or removing a face covering would cause them severe distress

  • they need to remove it during their test to avoid harm or injury or the risk of harm or injury to others

If pupils wear glasses

Wearing glasses does not count as a good reason not to wear a face covering.

How to help prepare

You should practise with driving whilst wearing a face covering before your test to help prepare. Talk to your instructor about the best way to do this. This could include:

  • trying different types of face covering

  • making sure your face covering fits well

  • making sure the vehicle is well-ventilated

Watch a short video on the short video on the BBC News website with tips about how to stop your glasses steaming up when you wear a face covering.

When they arrange their test

You must tell the instructor if you have a good reason not to wear a face covering when you arrange your training.

Your test will be cancelled if you come for your test without a face covering and you did not declare you could not wear one when they arranged your training.

the pupil will need to remove their face covering briefly so their driving examiner can check their ID.

Problem with their face covering during the test

If you have a problem with your face covering during the test, your driving examiner will ask you to stop so they can adjust it. Your driving examiner will end the test early if it becomes a safety issue.
