Guides and Tips

Studying is not fun, but it’s often necessary, and that’s certainly the case with the theory test. The entire thing will last around an hour to an hour and a half, so you will be covering a significant amount of driving theory knowledge! In fact, the theory test is two tests in one—a multiple choice section and a hazard perception test.

To make sure you’re fully prepared to earn a pass on the first go, devise a study plan that gives you plenty of time to learn what you need to know. Not sure where to start? Take a look at some of these revision guides that we recommend:

What Happens Next?

The theory test is just the first hurdle when it comes to earning a licence. Once this is completed, you move on to the slightly bigger hurdle of the practical test. This involves actually hitting the road and learning how to drive, so a lot more preparation needs to be completed before you can call yourself test-ready!

Get in touch with a local instructor, organise some lessons and hit the road! We also advise that you book your practical test before you’re actually ready to take it, as the available appointments tend to be months in advance. If you’d like to speed this process up, though, you can always purchase a fast-tracked test from PassMeFast! Our team can often bag you a date weeks in advance of those that you can find yourself on the DVSA booking system.
