Theory Test

While you’re focusing on perfecting your driving, it can be all too easy to overlook the importance of your theory test. But don’t be fooled—your theory test is just as important as your practical test, and it’s become a lot harder to pass in recent years. This means you’ll need to put in the time and effort to ace this crucial test. To make things easier for learners, we’ve created a dedicated theory test section with information about the theory test and hazard perception section. We’ll also include useful revision aids and guides to help you brush up on your knowledge, prepare, and pass.
