The pass rates for Kyle of Lochalsh test centre are, on the whole, fairly impressive. Do keep in mind, though, that not many tests take place here, so these figures are based on a small pool of data. How well you are likely to perform on test day has little to do with pass rates and a lot to do with how much revision you do beforehand!
No matter where you take it, the theory test itself is the same. It is composed of two parts: a multiple choice section and a hazard perception test. The first part requires you to answer 50 questions on a range of driving topics. To prepare for this you should revise The Highway Code, traffic signs and essential driving skills. You must score at least 43 to pass this section.
For the hazard perception test you will be shown 14 video clips of various driving scenarios. You must click the mouse every time you see a developing hazard. You can practice this skill by taking mock tests and reading about potential and developing driving hazards. To pass this section you need to score at least 44 out of a possible 75.
You must pass both parts of the theory test in order to achieve an overall pass! Here are some resources that will help:
