Every driver has to pass two tests before they can legally drive on their own. The first of these tests is the theory test. You must first pass the theory test before you can take the practical part of the test. The theory test consists of two parts, a multiple choice question section and a hazard perception video clip section. If you have passed a theory test for a different type of vehicle you will still have to pass the car theory before being able to take the practical test.
After passing your theory and seeking advice from a driving instructor, you can book your practical test. Make sure that you use our links provided below to book your test as there are several websites that will charge you to book your test for you but they are only doing what you can easily do yourself.
