Pass Rates by Year

The pass rates at the Aberystwyth theory test centre may look like they’re heading in the wrong direction, but they’re still higher than the national average! On top of this, you need to remember that pass rates don’t really mean anything for learners. This is a standard test that is the same no matter where you take it.

Guides and Tips

The statistics might not impact how well you do on test day, but the studying sure will! It’s really important that you prepare for the theory test as you would any other important exam. That means learning the necessary information and practicing tests until you can earn consistent pass marks.

The theory test covers 4 main areas:

The hazard perception part is separate from the multiple choice questions. Once those have been answered, you’ll be shown a series of video clips depicting various driving scenarios. You earn points by clicking the mouse provided whenever you spot a developing hazard.

Here are some great resources that can help you revise for the theory test:

What Happens Next?

Those working on passing the theory test are still right at the beginning of their driving journey. That is, unless you’ve taken plenty of lessons and are just struggling to get the theory test passed. This can be unfortunate as you might be ready for the practical test before you are even able to book it! Either way, there is a fair bit left to do to earn a licence once the theory test is passed.

Find yourself a reliable, local instructor and organise some lessons. You’ll need to rack up around 40-50 hours of tuition in order to be at test standard! We also recommend booking a practical test appointment in good time, as wait times for these tend to be looong. You’ll need the pass number of your theory test certificate to make your practical test booking. Live in Aberystwyth? Good news—there’s a practical test centre in town!

As you can tell, quite a lot goes into earning a licence. It takes much more than just hopping in a car and learning the ropes! Sometimes the knowledge of everything you have to get organised can feel pretty overwhelming. That’s where PassMeFast comes in.
