Can I reschedule my test?
If the candidate wishes to reschedule the test the candidate must do this at least 72 hours with no exceptions before the scheduled test date and time. The candidate will be unable to reschedule within 72 hours before the start of the scheduled test date. There will be no charge for rescheduling the test by emailing [email protected] outside of the 72 hour penalty period. Reschedules made via telephone booking line 0344 994 4400 will incur a £5 reschedule fee. The help desk is open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday, excluding Bank holidays.
Will I get a refund If I cancel?
If you cancel your test within 4 days of the test date no refund can be given. If the cancellation is over 4 days until your test date a refund for each test booked can be given minus £20 administration charge. You may want to consider rescheduling your test instead of cancelling by looking at the information in the “can I reschedule my test” box above.
For CSCS Card applications it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct documentation before submitting your application. Once a CSCS card application is submitted no refund can be given.
For CSCS online Green Card courses no refund can be given as we send out your login instructions immediately. Even if you have not received your login instructions, we have still requested them from the awarding body and this incurs a non-refundable charge.
If an agent has attempted to contact you multiple times, has attempted to complete your application or you do not provide the information needed, the admin fee will increase to £20 for any refunds. If you have not submitted information requested within 30 days no refund will be given.
What If I fail the test?
If you fail the test you can book another test 3 days after your initial test. If you fail we recommend buying revision material. A link can be found on the below tab. To book your new test click here
