Guides and Tips

The theory test is structured thusly: a multiple choice section followed by a hazard perception test. In order to earn a pass, you must get a passing mark on both parts. This means that when you’re studying (yes, you must do some revision for this test if you want to have any chance of passing!) you should spend time preparing for both parts.

If you’re not sure where to start with the studying, or need a bit of extra help, consider using some of the study guides we’ve included in the list below.
