Your vehicle and driving

There is a lot to take in when you are learning to drive and when you are preparing for the driving theory test. Whilst a lot of it is common sense there is a considerable amount of information you will need to learn to.

Some questions in the theory test will be with regard to your vehicle. In addition to knowing what the documentation you require in order to drive, you will need to know information regarding the use of safety equipment and several other elements too.

It is important to know about your vehicle and how to use it in detail because this can assist in the safety of yourself and of course your passengers that you may carry.

It is not expected or indeed required to have a very indepth knowledge, however you need to know the basics so that should a common mechanical fault occur you know what it is.

There are various regulations that you must obey with regard to your use of safety equipment, exhaust emissions and so on. Although there is a lot to take in, it is very important information that you will require to know once you have passed your test to, so don't just view the studying of information to do with your vehicle as something you need to pass your test - you'll need it as a driver too.
