Taking a test in an Electric Vehicle

Can I take my driving test in an electric car?

Yes, you can take your driving test in an electric car, but keep in mind that you’ll be given a category B auto licence if you pass. If you want to get a category B licence that allows you to drive manual cars, you’ll have to take (and pass) your driving test in a manual.

category B licence will enable you to drive manual, automatic, and electric cars. If you have a category B auto licence, you’ll still be able to drive electric vehicles, but you’ll be restricted to automatic petrol cars.
