Tips on passing your theory test

It is up to each individual who takes a theory test to do the necessary work and preparation to put themselves in the best position to pass the test.

Rather than attempting to 'cram' the night before you take the theory test, you should rather study the theory steadily over a reasonable period of time before the test. Remember that whilst you want to pass the test first time, the overall idea of a theory test is to give you a good working knowledge of the theory of driving and therefore to make you a better and safer driver. Therefore a thorough grounding is essential for your ongoing driving and not just to pass the test.

You should read through the questions. You will find that there are some that you will know straight off whilst others you will probably need to read up on the answers as you will need to possess a piece of knowledge in order to answer them correctly.

It is important that as well as reading you actively tackle practice questions, and then ultimately that you take several practice tests. This will help to cement the answers to the questions in your mind, and also help to aid your understanding and knowledge of the questions and the answers to them. Additionally for some people it will be a long time since they took any sort of formal structured exam or test, so undertaking practice tests is a good way of getting in the test mindset.

If there are some areas that you find particularly tricky or confusing, then you may find it useful to focus particularly on those. If there are questions that confuse you more than others, then jot them down and the answers and discuss them with your driving instructor who should be able to help you understand why the answer to the question is what it is. The theory test is about understanding and not just knowledge, as evidenced by the introduction of the case study question to the test.

As with any test, get a good nights sleep before so that you are able to focus and give your full concentration to the test. Try to relax and when the test starts be sure to give it your full concentration.

You should be very careful to read the question through. You may like to read through it twice to make sure that you have understood what it is asking, because if you answer the wrong question then you are liable to get the wrong answer. There is enough time allocated in the theory test that you do not need to scan read and rush through it at high speed.
