Driving test chaos as website crashes AGAIN as thousands queue to book online

THOUSANDS of learner drivers were struggling to book their driving test this morning after the DVSA website crashed again.

A staggering 99,000 people are trying to access the website after more driving test slots were released today.

It comes after the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) website crashed last week as well after opening for the first time since the coronavirus crisis.

The DVSA is only releasing limited driving slots so that learners and examiners could comply with social distancing restrictions.

It was supposed to release more tests this Monday, August 24, but pushed the next batch back until 8am today due to "unprecedented demand".

Frustrated learner drivers joked the DVSA could "keep their licence" after struggling to get online.

One tweeted: "Just gone to book my driving test to be in a queue with 73,000 PEOPLE, just keep my licence who can be arsed.

Another said: "Probably the longest queue I have had in my entire life 99,606. Wish me luck."

A third tweeted: "Half an hour in and I'm beginning to lose hope. Down from 50,684."

The DVSA apologised to those who were struggling to get online in a tweet this morning.

It tweeted: "Driving test booking service update.

"For those who have experienced a problem with getting into the booking system, please try again.

"You should now be able to get into the booking system queue. Sorry for any inconvenience."
