There’s no rule saying you have to take the theory test in your hometown. Most people just do so for the sake of convenience. If you fancy using the theory test as an excuse to get out of town, check out test centres in nearby areas like Elgin and Peterhead.
When you pass the theory test don’t forget to give yourself a big pat on the back! You’ve just completed a vital stage of earning a licence that many people find tricky. The hard work has paid off and you’re ready to move forward to the next challenge.
And quite a challenge it is! You now have to prepare for the practical test, which involves going for a 40-minute drive with instructions provided by a DVSA examiner. This can be quite a daunting prospect. With enough tuition, however, it can be a breeze in the end.
