Preparing for your theory test
Before you can take your practical driving test, you of course need to pass your theory test.
There’s a lot to learn about the rules of the road and the better prepared you are, the more likely you are to pass first time.
A great place to start is with the Official DVSA learning materials as they are written by the people who set the test!
Learning materials are available in a range of formats, which will allow you to learn the way you find easiest.
