Driving Theory Test & Hazard Perception

I studied for my Instructor Theory Test using Focus Multimedia's "Driving Test Success - All Tests" PC-DVD.  I passed first time with a score of 100%.  I can supply most study aids should you require them, be it PC software or official DVSA literature.

Before You Start...

You need to be old enough to drive:

The minimum age that you can legally drive a car on public roads in the UK is 17.  If you're disabled and receive the higher rate of Disability Living Allowance, this is lowered to 16.

You need to get a Provisional Licence:

This can be applied for online or can be obtained by completing a 'D1' form which is available from most Post Offices or via the DVLA's Online Form Ordering service.  If you would like to start lessons on your 17th birthday a licence can be applied for from aged 16 and 9 months although driving entitlement only starts when you reach 17.

The current cost of a first Provisional Licence is £34.00 for an online application and £43.00 if you apply by post.  It is also worthwhile having an eyesight test to check that you meet the minimum eyesight standard for driving.

After you start...

As you progress with your learning you'll need to book your tests:

You take your theory and hazard perception test first then your practical test.  You need to pass your practical test within two years of passing your theory.

You can book and manage your tests online using the DSA's online booking services.  As of March 2013 the online booking systems for theory and practical driving tests have moved to GOV.UK.  There are new friendly links that you should now use:

You can find out more about the theory and practical tests by visiting the DSA’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/dsagov and watching ‘Are you ready? A guide for learners’.
