Booking Your Driving Theory Test

About the Driving Theory Test

The driving theory test is designed to consolidate your knowledge on a selection of topics relating to driving theory. This knowledge is vital for being safe and sensible on the roads, and to make sure that you are adequately prepared, the test is broken up into two parts.

First of all, there is a multiple-choice quiz, where candidates will answer questions about different aspects of driving theory. After that, there is a simulation of driving, where candidates will be asked to identify road hazards and react to them before they become a problem.

Taking the Test

Please make sure that you arrive 15 minutes early to the testing facility. The DVLA does not take kindly to late applicants, and has the right to automatically fail any candidate they consider to be breaking the rules.

Please make sure to put all of your belongings into a secure storage locker prior to entering the testing room. You are not permitted to bring anything with you into the room itself, and doing so will be considered cheating.

After the Test

Once the test has been completed, you will be given a piece of paper with your results on them. You will know automatically whether you have passed or failed the driving theory test, and your scores will also be detailed for you.
