Guides and Tips

Ready to rock your theory test? That’s the attitude! It won’t necessarily be the most riveting of rides, but revising for the theory test is extremely important if you want to have a hope of passing. The exam is made up of two parts: a multiple choice section and a hazard perception test. You must pass both parts in order to achieve an overall pass. All in all, you should be at the test centre for no longer than 90 minutes. For some learners, it will be much quicker than this.

For the best chance of success, make use of the many available resources out there designed to make studying for the theory test much easier. You can start with these:
