Pass Rates by Year

There’s no sugarcoating it—these pass rates are not great and recently dipped way below average. The statistics can be skewed by the fact that a small number of people take their test here, however, so we wouldn’t give them much weight.

Guides and Tips

Don’t let the theory test make a fool of you! This exam can be pretty hard if you don’t know your stuff. Trust us, plenty of people fail on the first attempt because they assume they can get by with some basic driving knowledge. Not the case!

The theory test is made up of two sections:

  • Multiple choice questions
  • A hazard perception test

You must pass both parts or it’s goodbye, pass certificate. To ensure success on test day, study hard and revise the material until you really understand it. Here are some resources that can help:

What Happens Next?

Perhaps you’re way ahead of us and the theory test pass certificate is already firmly in your grasp. Good for you! It’s not time to turn your attention to the practical test. Find an instructor, book yourself a test and commit yourself to driving lessons. If you live in Bala, there’s a practical test centre in town. You can find it at the Penllyn Workshops.

We have quite a bit of experience when it comes to transforming learners into qualified drivers, and if you ask us, we say intensive courses are the way to go. Taking longer lessons in a shorter period of time means that you can master the ropes much more quickly than if you were to stick to weekly, 1-hour lessons. It also means that you don’t forget what you’ve learned by the time your next lesson rolls around!
