Theory & Practical Tests

Theory test

You will need to pass your theory test before you can apply for your practical test. This will include multiple choice questions and hazard perception videos. Your reading list should include Driving The Essential Skills (a DVSA Publication) and The Highway Code. Both are available online.

I will give you all the help you need to get the theory certificate early on in your training. IMPORTANT NOTE From Summer 2020, priority for booking lessons will be given to those who have already passed their theory test as, because of test cancellations caused by the Covid 19 epidemic, the waiting list for practical tests could be 5 or 6 months for a while.

Practical test

Your training will follow the National Standards for Driver and Rider Training as set by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The full details of this training can be found on the GOV.UK website. We will apply for your practical test as soon we agree that you are ready.

You should read this official document which will give you the guidelines for the learning process and the practical test. Please click on the link below:
