Potentially a very boring opinion

AdvantagesThe people at the test centre make you feel like a criminal (always wanted to know what that was like)

"The driving theory test was introduced in July 1996 in an attempt to make Britain's road users safer.

Theory Tests - Hazard Perception

AdvantagesCan't think of any

Disadvantagesexpensive, time consuming (or is that a waste of time?), everything basically

Firstly, to book a test you can phone 0870 010 1372, or by post using a DSA form (I presume you can get this from your driving instructor or a post office), you can also book online at www.dsa.gov.uk which ..."

Passing the theory test -Without books

AdvantagesIt works for me i passed
