Driving Theory

Practice makes perfect. It is a known fact that if you practice a particular skill, you get better at it. This is true of mental skills such as performing mental arithmetic: the more you try to do sums and maths in your head, the better you get at it.

Similarly, driving is a skill. The more you practice your driving the better you get, as your experience, confidence and familiarity with the artform increase. At the start, there is a lot to learn as you get behind the wheel for the first time and it can be daunting.

Whilst you are having your practical lessons, hand in hand you will be learning driving theory. Specifically, you will be preparing for a driving theory test that will see if you have a grasp of all the important elements you need to know to be a safe driver in practice. Driving theory is important as new drivers are more likely to be involved in accidents than experienced driver, so a good command and understand of driving theory will help to keep you safe.

There are a large range of categories that you need to know about under the umbrella term of driving theory: Accidents, alertness, attitude, documents, hazard awardness, motorway rules, other types of vehicle, road and traffi signs, rules of the road, safety and your vehicles, safety margins, vehicle handling, vehicle loading, vulnerable road users.

Those are the categories that you will be tested on. There are a range of categories. You will find it helpful as a first port of call to read through the Highway Code. This covers in detail much of the background that forms the context of driving theory. In terms of the questions you will be asked, you can access all of them for car drivers on this site, so please do register. Good luck with your driving theory - try not to be too daunted and take things at your own pace and you will be fine!
