Driving Theory Test
The Driving Theory Test is a computer based test consisting of multiple-choice questions about the theory of driving, rules, laws, and the Highway Code. It is followed by a video-based hazard perception test, designed to test your ability to observe potential hazards both on and around the road.
You must have passed the Driving Theory Test before you can take your practical driving test. However, as long as you have a provisional licence you can begin learning to drive on the roads before taking the Driving Theory Test.
Remember: The DSA don’t charge
There a number of unofficial websites booking theory and practical driving tests for learner drivers and charge a fee for doing so on top of the usual test fee. The DSA DO NOT CHARGE for booking a test and learners arranging their own tests should make sure they only use the official DSA website which is www.gov.uk/book-a-driving-theory-test or www.gov.uk/book-practical-driving-test.
It is important to learn and remember the theory and the Highway Code – your Midland driving instructor will give you tips on how to revise and where to get revision material from.
