Guides and Tips

Not many people find the process of revising for a test fun, but when it comes to the theory test this is something of a necessary evil. Just a few hours of studying can make a big difference to whether you pass or fail this test.

What’s involved in the theory test, then? Well, you’re going to have to complete both a multiple choice section and a hazard perception test. You need to show that you have a solid understanding of the Highway Code, traffic signs and essential driving skills.

To ensure your study plan is up to the challenge, we recommend making use of some of these resources:
