The day of the theory test
On the day of the theory test you may well feel nervous. As with any test or examination of any kind this is of course natural as everybody is anxious to do their best and to pass the test.
It is important that you are well prepared and leave enough time to get to the venue. You are likely to find it stressful if you leave it until the last minute to get there, therefore ensure that you leave plenty of time to get to the test venue.
Typically you should aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the test, but remember that when calculating your travel time you should have a cushion in that for problems such as late trains, or if you are getting a lift to the venue, for traffic around it and so forth.
You will need to bring with you your passport and signed paper driving licence, or for the vast majority of people this has been superceded by a valid signed UK photocard license (or Northern Ireland).
It is essential that you have this appropriate documentation with you so double check before leaving your house before the test to ensure that you don't have a wasted journey. Worse, if you turn up without these documentation then you are not only not allowed to take the test, but in addition you will lose the fees for the test. So it makes sense to be prepared.
