Home Test Kit Frequently Asked Questions

Should you have any queries about ExpressTest, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about our services. Alternatively, for a more extensive list of answers, click here to read our FAQ's page. 

Book online via our 'Book a Test' page. You can choose your preferred testing centre, time and also pay online.

You will then be sent a Booking Confirmation email containing your Booking Reference (a number beginning CPT or SCPT) and a QR code attached. This could take up to 30 minutes to receive after you’ve made your booking. We suggest you also check your spam/junk folder for the email, as some email providers may place it there.

You must bring the QR code with you when you arrive for your test. Please also bring your valid Passport, National ID or Travel Document if you have booked 'PCR Fit to Fly' Test or 'PCR Test to Release' Test.

Can I book over the phone?
Bookings can only be made via our website and not by phone. Our website currently shows all our available slots and you will not gain access to additional slots by calling our customer care centre.

If you need more than one product
You should make separate bookings. e.g. if you want a PCR Fit to Fly Test for departure and also an arrivals package for your return, you should make two separate bookings.
Note: not all products are available at every site due to different laboratory processes.

Maximum Group Size
You can book for up to 5 people in one booking. If your group is larger than this you will need to make 2 or more bookings and arrive in 2 or more vehicles.

Don't forget to bring all of your QR codes to the appointments.

On the day of your Home Test, Yodel will email you between 06:30 and 13:00 to confirm the 2 hour collection window. The first collection is from 07:00 and the last collection is at 21:00 If you don’t open the email, they will also send you an SMS text message.

These communications will go to the email/phone number you provided in the booking.

Please ensure your Home Tests are already packaged up for the courier when they arrive at your address. Make sure you will not miss your collection by Yodel, as you may have to book a new test.

You must plan to be at home for the whole day until your sample collection time provided by Yodel. If you miss the courier, unfortunately your Home Test cannot be processed.

If you would like to change your delivery address, this can only be done prior to the Home Test kit being dispatched. If it has not been dispatched then you need to cancel your Home Test and book a new one. If it has already been dispatched, then unfortunately it is too late to change the address.

We are unable to offer collections on a weekend or a bank holiday therefore these dates are not available as choices for Home Test days.

If you need a weekend (or bank holiday) test, you can book at any of our test centres that offer Arrivals tests, subject to availability.

We aim to despatch your Home Test kit three days before your chosen test day, to arrive two days before your chosen test day (unless that falls on a Sunday or Monday, when it will arrive on the Saturday or Tuesday either side).

No you are not able to return your Home Test via a post box. It must be handed to the Yodel courier who comes to collect it from the address you gave us in your booking.

You must take your Home Test on the day you booked, and prior to your collection time. Remember that the first collection could be from 07:00am, so it needs to be ready in case you're the first collection that day.
