Pass Rates by Year

The bad news is that the pass rates at the Stranraer theory test centre are fairly inconsistent and currently sit below the national average. The good news is that this doesn’t really have any impact on individual learners. Your chances of passing are mainly based on how prepared you are—the test will be the same no matter where you take it.

Guides and Tips

OK, let’s tackle what you’re going to need to do beforehand to ensure that you can pass your theory test. If you decide that you don’t like revision so you’re just going to head to the test and use your basic driving knowledge to scrape a pass, we’ll be here waiting when you are forced to book and pay for another test. Sorry to bring out the sass, but this is a test you really need to take seriously. 

The theory test quizzes you on The Highway Code, traffic signs and essential driving skills. Once the multiple choice section is over, you also need to complete a hazard perception test. In order to pass the whole thing, you must earn a passing score on both sections. Excelling on one part just won’t do. 

To get started on a study process that’s up to the job, have a look at the resources we’ve listed below. They’re tried, tested and truly helpful!

What Happens Next?

With the theory test under your belt, you get to move on to the practical test. Now, this certainly isn’t something you can head into without a great deal of preparation. The DVSA recommends that learners complete around 40-50 hours of driving lessons before taking the test. 

This might sound like it’s going to take an age for you to get test-ready, but with the right driving school, it doesn’t have to be that way! PassMeFast uses a combination of intensive lessons and fast-tracked tests to help learners master the art of driving as quickly as safely possible. We also set you up with an instructor and book any tests that you require. With those responsibilities taken care of for you, you can really focus on the driving itself!

If you’d like PassMeFast to help you earn your driving licence, pick up the phone and call 0333 123 4949. A member of our friendly team will be happy to talk you through the process and help you decide which of our courses is best for you.
