The Driving Test
The Theory Test
The learner driver theory test was introduced by me in 2001. By law, before applying for a learner permit, candidates must complete and pass a test of their general road safety knowledge and motoring legislation. It applies to anyone applying for a first learner permit in any vehicle category.
**The test is designed to check knowledge of topics such as: **
Rules of the Road
Good driving behaviour
The test is computer-based but, like the fast check-in kiosks at airports, is designed for those who have little or no experience of using computers as well as those who do.
You will have a chance to take a practice session on the day before starting on the actual test. If you have special needs please contact the Driver Theory Service and explain your requirements.
There are two books:
“The Official Driver Theory Test Questions and Answers, Motorcycles, Cars and Work Vehicles – 6th Edition, October 2013”, which covers all learning material for Car/Work Vehicles and Motorcycles (Note: You can still study The Official Driver Theory Test Book and CD-Rom 5th Edition for the Car/Work Vehicle and Motorcycle categories.) and;
“The Official Driver Theory Test Questions and Answers, Truck & Buses (including Step 1 and Step 2 of Driver CPC) – 6th Edition 2013”, which covers all learning material for Bus and Truck Theory Tests and Driver CPC Case Study Test.
