Driving Theory Test

Until relatively recently in driving history, there was no theory test. From the time the first person passed a driving test in the UK in 1935 through to 1996, there was no separate theory test. Drivers might be asked a question or two at the start of the test about driving theory, but that was it.

Now however things are different. Since 1996 onwards there is a driving theory test that all new car drivers must pass before taking their practical test. As with any test, there is cost associated as well as the learning invested and therefore you will want to pass it first time around.

In order to pass first time, you should prepare as thoroughly as you can. One of the best ways of doing this is to use this website, where you will be able to familiarise yourself with all the questions that appear in the multiple choice element of the test. In addition, you will be able to test yourself against some hazard perception clips too in order to develop awareness of how that test functions and to get used to some of the possible hazards that you might be expected to spot in that test.

Although it can seem daunting when you first come to driving theory and see how many questions and categories there are, a large proportion of how to drive safely is common sense and requires rational and clear thought, so don't be too intimidated. Of course there is learning involved, such as recognising the less common road signs you may encounter, but with time and concentration, anyone can learn the theory of driving and therefore pass the test.
