What to expect on your driving theory test

Driving theory test - what you should know

Your driving theory test is taken before your practical driving test and is one of the first steps on your journey to becoming a qualified motorist in the UK. The theory test is set by the DVLA and is designed to assess your understanding of highways and road safety, and to determine your awareness as a motorist. You can book your theory test online on the Government website and it will cost £23 per attempt.

To book you'll need your driving license, email address and a payment method. You will take your test at a local assessment centre that you can find the location off on gov.uk. The test will be carried out on a computer on which which you'll answer the multiple choice questions and complete the hazard perception test. You'll get a 15 minute practice session before the test begins so you can get comfortable with the how to answer questions and complete the test.
