Guides and Tips

Dedicating a good amount of time to studying for the theory test can significantly speed up your overall journey to earning a licence. Failing, rebooking and retaking tests can add weeks or even months to the learning process. Not to mention, it will cost you a pretty penny!

We know that revising isn’t the most exciting activity, but some of the questions on the theory test are quite challenging, so you will need to swot up on your driving knowledge before you take the test. There’s also the hazard perception test to content with, which takes a bit of practise to get used to.
