The Theory Test.
The Theory Test is a computer based test of your driving theory knowledge.
The theory test is made up of a multiple-choice part and a hazard perception part. You need to pass both parts to pass the theory test.
If you pass one part and fail the other you’ll fail the whole test, and you’ll need to take both parts again.
The questions in the multiple-choice test will depend on the category of vehicle you are hoping to get a licence for. For example, a motorcycle theory test will contain questions that don’t appear in any other test.
For the hazard perception test there are no separate versions for different vehicles, but the pass mark is different for them.
Unfortunately many candidates do not spend sufficient time to study this important element of learning to drive and fail to see the importance the theory knowledge will have during your Driving Lessons. You must pass the Theory Test BEFORE you or your Driving instructor can book the practical driving test.
Here at Herbie Driving School, we would like to make sure you pass the Theory Test at the first attempt as that will ensure we are able to book your practical driving test as soon as you are ready and not have unnecessary delays.
When you feel you are ready to take and pass the Theory, you can book your test online.
WARNING! The current cost of a Theory Test is £23.00. There are booking sites available that will charge you more and are completely unnecessary. I strongly recommend that you use the official government website to book your test.
Before you can book the test, please make sure you have your provisional licence details to hand.
