The UK Driving Test Theory course contains everything you need to know in order to prepare for, and pass, the UK Driving Theory Test. Passing this two-part test is essential if you are looking to obtain a driving licence, but the success rate is only around fifty per cent. Therefore, you need to make sure you are familiar with the syllabus and feel confident in tackling both parts of the test. There is no limit to the number of times you can sit the test, but passing it first time will save you money, time and stress.
This course addresses not only the key content of the theory test syllabus, but also gives you the skills you need in order to retain the material, link it to your practical driving experience and control your nerves before the test. In addition, you will also gain a head start on preparing for your practical test. The course will allow you to become a safe, confident driver who is equipped to handle a range of situations on the road. The majority of the information in this course also applies to motorcyclists.
