Pass Rates by Year

These are some pretty nice pass rates! Each one is a good few points above the national average. Don’t let these stats give you too much false confidence, though—the theory test is the same wherever you take it. The only way to improve your chances of passing is by studying hard for the test. Boring but true!

Guides and Tips

It’s time to get your geek on, because you really can’t pass the theory test without doing at least some revision. Anyone who tells you they did is lying. Remember—less than 50% of learners manage to pass the theory test on their first attempt. A big part of this is the fact that people often underestimate how tricky the test can be. This is not just basic driving questions, guys!

You need to pass both parts of the theory test (the multiple choice section and the hazard perception test) in order to get your hands on a pass certificate. Check out these study guides to get a head start on your revision:

What Happens Next?

When the theory test is firmly in your rearview mirror, you can move on to the practical side of things. Start hitting the roads of your local area with a professional instructor to learn the skills required to prove to the DVSA that you can be a safe, confident driver.

A word of warning: wait times for practical tests can be much longer than those for theory tests. It’s therefore a good idea to get an appointment booked in nice and early, even if you’re not considered test-ready yet. This also gives you a date to work towards, which can be great for motivation. If you live in Powys, your local practical test centres can be found in Brecon and Newtown
