Booking Your Driving Theory Test

When you are ready to book your driving theory test we will handle the paperwork on your behalf. It is part of the service we offer and makes it easier for you to just have one point of contact with us.
Because we only enter you when we are mutually in agreement that you are ready to take the test, we are sure you will pass on the first time. However, we do also offer a free rebooking service if things don't go quite according to plan on the day.

About the Driving Theory Test

The driving theory test is one part of a two-stage process to obtain a full UK driving licence. The theory test has been designed to show that you can demonstrate a good working knowledge of the roads. You must pass this part of the test before you can move on to the practical element.
You will find the test similar to your revision questions and of course this is deliberate. First of all, you will be shown a multiple-choice questionnaire and then a hazard perception video where you must correctly and quickly identify dangers on the road ahead.

Taking the Test

On the day of your test please try and arrive at the centre approximately 15 minutes before your test time. The appointment times are incredibly strict, and we know of candidates that were disqualified for being even one minute late and there is no appeal to this decision.
On arrival you will be offered a secure storage locker in which to leave all of your possessions. Please take advantage of this as you may not take anything into the test room with you including mobile phones as this can be construed as an attempt to cheat and you will be disqualified.

After the Test

You may collect the test results as soon as you have completed both parts of the test. You will be given a printout that details whether you passed or failed and how well you performed on each section of the test which is useful information if you do need to retake it at a later date.
