The Theory Test

The driving theory and hazard perception test is the first hurdle on the road to your licence. A copy of the highway code and a copy of the dvd driving test success are in my opinion, the best tools to use. Other useful resources can be found in most bookshops or from and as your driving instructor I am always willing to help.

To book your driving theory and hazard perception test

Book online at When taking the test you will need to take your provisional driving licence card and counterpart.

The Practical Test

Your lessons will teach you to drive independently, to assess problems and to progress safely, as well as to execute any manoeuvre the examiner asks of you. A wide range of resources are used to aid your understanding of manoeuvres and to safely tackle different road layouts.

On the day of your test, you will book a session of 2 hours. This will give you time to prepare for the test, and will include the test itself. During your test, your instructor can ride in the car with you and the examiner, providing a reassuring presence for you. You will need to bring your provisional driving licence card and counterpart, as well as your theory test pass certificate.

From October 2010, the driving practical test will involve 10 minutes of independent driving, for more information on the changes visit
