Guides and Tips

Don’t underestimate the theory test. If we had a penny for every learner who failed on their first attempt because they didn’t revise, we’d be giving Elon Musk a run for his money! 

There is a range of driving topics you need to be ready to answer questions on and you also have to pass a hazard perception test. While it might sound like a lot, breaking it down into smaller sections that you can revise in chunks makes it much more manageable. You can also use study aids (like the ones in the list below) to help you make the most of your revision sessions.
