Can You Record Your Driving Test?


Approximately less than a minute reading time.

The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) does not allow the recording of driving tests. This no recording policy covers both practical and riding tests. Whether you are using audio or visual equipment, filming inside the vehicle, or recording in a motorcycle test, these are not permitted. What the agency allows is the use of a camera for insurance purposes as long as it is facing outside and it does not record any video or audio from the inside of the vehicle you are testing. In connection with this, DVSA will not provide any information with regards to the video footage or the result of the driving test. The matter will be reported to the police if the footage is linked to any criminal activity. In case the driving examiner caught the driving test being recorded, he/she will stop the session and allow the student to turn off the equipment being used for the recording.
