Salisbury School of Motoring is challenging you to find out if you could pass your driving test again.

They are running mock driving tests for FULL licence holders as a special fundraiser for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

  • WHEN: Saturday 7th March 2020
  • WHO: Salisbury School of Motoring
  • WHERE: Manor Rd, Salisbury

It doesn't matter whether you've been driving 1 year, or 30 years, you're being encouraged to take your test again.

The charity event is helping raise money for Wiltshire Air Ambulance which is celebrating 30 years of operation.

Salisbury School of Motoring say that if you can pass your test, they'll donate 100% of the fee to the charity. If you don't pass they'll donate 50% of the money, and you'll be given tips and advice to help make your journeys safer.


  • Wiltshire Air Ambulance celebrates its 30th anniversary this year
  • Last year Wiltshire Air Ambulance responded to 239 road traffic collisions
  • It costs at least £10,000 a day to keep the helicopter flying, that's £3.75m per year
  • Wiltshire Air Ambulance relies on donations to keep saving lives
  • It is not funded directly by the Government and receives no National Lottery grants


Driving Tests will be conducted Salisbury School of Motoring's professional instructors. Their aim is not just to promote safe driving skills, but raise vital cash for the county's emergency helicopter.
