Guides and Tips

The theory test can be pretty easy, but only if you put the hard work in beforehand. You’ll face 50 questions out of a bank of 700, so you’ll need a fairly wide knowledge to pass the first time. If you take enough mock tests and pass a few times, you shouldn’t have too many problems on the day.

At the risk of sounding like a parent, just make sure you’re well-rested, show up to the test centre on time and do plenty of revision. We’ve compiled a list of resources that will stand you in good stead...

What Happens Next?

Once you’ve nailed the theory test, you’ll notice a number printed on the certificate. This number enables you to sit the practical test, so it’s best to try and get the theory test sorted as soon as possible.

Now it’s time to focus on the practical side of things. If you’ve already got an instructor, you’ll want to speak to them to determine how quickly they can fit your lessons and test in. Don’t have an instructor yet? Or maybe you want to pass ASAP and your instructor is too busy? Well, this is where PassMeFast can come to the rescue.

Once you book with us, the office team will do all the fiddly administrative work on your behalf. They’ll also pair you up with a local, DVSA-approved driving instructor who will help you to pass the practical. What’s more, we can get you a test much faster than the average wait times.
