Preparing for your theory test

The theory test is a simple road test where you must demonstrate your ability to drive safely at different speeds and under varying conditions. It will take place in a controlled environment, so it’s not like taking a real car test.

What happens in the multiple choice test?

The exam consists of four sections – knowledge, reasoning, language and numerical ability. Each section has three parts. In the first part, you will answer short questions based on information given in the question paper. This is called ‘theory testing’. In the second part, you will answer questions based on what you know from previous papers. This is called “practice testing”. Finally, you will answer questions where you must apply what you have learned to solve problems. This is called ’problem solving’.

If you don’t need to take a car theory test, then it may be worth considering taking one online instead. This will save you money and allow you to study at home without having to book a place at a centre.
