Guides and Tips

If you want to pass the theory test you will need to get your study on. The test isn’t very hard, but it’s also not a situation where you can just guess the answers. If you take that approach you’re pretty much guaranteed to fail. 

The theory test challenges you to show a detailed understanding of the Highway Code, traffic signs and essential driving skills. There’s also a hazard perception test you must pass too! 

To get started with your revision, use some of the resources we’ve listed below.

What Happens Next?

Once the theory test is done and dusted, you can use the number on your pass certificate to book a practical test. This might seem like you’re jumping the gun a bit, but wait times for these tests can be much longer than those for the theory. If you live in Bridgend, your nearest practical test centre will be in Llantrisant.

So, how exactly do you prepare to pass the practical test? By driving of course! Get in touch with a qualified driving instructor and hit the road to complete your lessons. You’ll start out learning basic skills like steering and changing gear, before moving on to more advanced skills like parallel parking.
