Before you take your practical driving test, you need to pass your driving theory test. This can seem a bit daunting at times. It costs £23 for each theory test you take, so if you’re nervous about passing, it is completely understandable. Thankfully, Pass N’ Go has some advice for you to help you pass. You can pass this test with flying colours if you take these tips:
Use Your Previous Driving Lessons as Preparation
Your practical test and your theory test shouldn’t be viewed as two completely different things. Instead, they should be looked at as things that work together. Both tests compliment one another, as they both help take you from a new driver to a proficient one. They work together in harmony. Because of this, when you take a driving lesson, you should take what you’ve learned in theory and put that into practice out on the road.
And don’t be afraid to ask questions. Feel free to talk to your instructor about anything that may be confusing you, or anything in the preparation process that you might find difficult. They’re there to help you, after all.
Purchase the DVSA Theory Test Kit
- The app has detailed information on every topic covered in the test.
- It has practice studies, so that you can see the theory in action.
- Each topic has questions to help you prepare.
- There are mock tests to help prepare you for the real one.
- And there are ten official interactive clips provided by the DVSA to help you with hazard perception.
Make Sure You Have Your Provisional Driving License With You
You have to make sure that you have this item with you when you go to take your test. Without it, you will not be allowed to take the test. This will result in you losing the £23 you initially spent to take the test.
Time Your Test Appropriately
You will be given 57 minutes to take the 50-question test. This will allow you to take one minute on each question, and still have 7 minutes left over. You can take the extra time to look over your questions, or spend a little more time on some questions here and there with the extra 7 minutes. Don’t rush through questions you find difficult.
You can take your time with those to make sure you answer them correctly. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to time the hazard perception half of the test. This part of the test consists of 14-one minute video clips. However, you should make sure that you use the 3-minute breather period to take your eyes away from the computer screen and ease any nerves you may still have.
