THE PROCESS If you are going to be taking your theory test soon or are thinking about taking it here's some things you should know (although you will be told all of this beforehand anyway by the DSA and the centre where you take the test). Firstly, to book a test you can phone 0870 010 1372, or...

Miss Dutton-Taylor sat before me sporting her unusually large chin and attempting to intimidate me with disapproving looks. As she shook her head in disgust hypnotically swaying her Jimmy Hill/ Bruce Forsyth sized body part, I stifled a giggle that did not go unnoticed. It was at this point that...

“Question 1 - Oh Sheet”

Makes sure you're safe!

Tests!!!

The driving theory test was introduced in July 1996 in an attempt to make Britain's road users safer. Anyone who wanted to drive or ride a motorised vehicle must complete a theory test in the appropriate catagory before they could sit their practical test. Well this is true for cars anyway. For...

Now, before you tell me how easy the theory test is supposed to be, times have changed. The theory test is now unbelievably daunting and composed not of a straightforward written test, but a complex touchscreen multiple choice exam and fourteen – yes, fourteen – different hazard perception video...

It works for me i passed

Boring and repetitive

I passed my theory test in August 2007, and i was so excited, i prepared myself very well, and i prayed i could pass. How i prepared: To be totally honest i didnt lift a book to prepare for my theory test, i just went online, and i did all the mock tests i could find, and i kept doing them and...

The Theory Test.... The theory test, at the time of writing, is a two-part test; the first part consisting of 50 multiple choice questions; and the second part being the hazard perception test whereby you will be shown 14 hazard clips and are asked to identify the hazards by clicking your mouse...

“EXPERIENCE OF A DRIVING TEST”

published 10/11/2004

WILL MAKE YOU INDEPENDANT, STRONG WILLED, MOBILE!!

COST OF LESSONS AND BOTH TESTS!

First of all, as everyone who wants to learn to drive will know it can be a very stressful time. I started to learn about six months ago, to begin with I started shopping around for quotes on lessons and was surprised to see how expensive they were £25.00 a lesson, but this didnt put me off, nor...

Not for me

Ensures you have some required knowledge.

Hazard perception test is a joke and unrealistic.

My feelings mirror those above. I have been driving for ten years on a normal licence, never had an accident and never had any points, I was taking the LGV theory test. I scored 60/60 on the theory part and then failed the hazard perception. I know I didn't miss any, they're simply to obvious for...

£20.50 a pop is a lot to resit, each time!

I'm half way to becoming a driver, watch out Britain!!!!! I passed my theory test yesterday, and never in a million years did I think I would. 32/35 questions and 64 on the hazards! I'm writing this review for one reason, and one reason only. I ONLY passed my theory test because I purchased a CD...

I have just failed my driving theory test second time and all the time it is hazard perception part. I did practice a lot and what I believe is that it is DSA's strategy to make money as we cant prove it that we are technically right, so they can pass us or fail us, it is up to them.

The Driving Theory Test is completely flawed and needs rethinking, read the reviews around and you'll personally see its pointless and rubbish.
