Theory Test

Before you can book your practical driving test, you must first pass the DVSA theory test.

Follow the link to see some sample theory test questions

There are also several superb theory test study aids on the market, including excellent products from the likes of Focus Multimedia & LDC. Based on past experience, I can recommend the LDC Theory Test CD ROM because it is an excellent resource to guide you through passing your theory test, with all of the required DVSA subjects including the Highway Code, Official theory test questions & over 400 hazard perception clips.

To book your theory test, please visit the DVSA's website. Useful links for booking your theory & practical driving tests can be found on my Book Tests Online page
