Guides and Tips

The theory test is nothing to be worried about, but it does require you to do some revision before heading to the test. The multiple-choice section covers a range of driving topics, including alertness, safety margins, vulnerable road users and attitude. On top of that, you have to be able to spot developing hazards on a range of video clips.

It might sound like a lot, but studying the relevant material should put your mind at rest. You can also take some mock tests to track your progress. To get started on your revision, have a look at some of the study guides we’ve included below.
