Theory test preparation
We will teach you the skills required to become a confident, competent and responsible driver.
The Theory TestThe Theory Test has changed!
From Sept 28th 09, some car & motorcycle multiple choice questions will be given as a case study
The theory test is made up of two parts; the multiple choice part and the hazard perception part. You need to pass both parts to pass the theory test. Once you have passed the theory test you can then apply to take your practical driving test.
You can get further details from the Theory test section on the Direct Gov site
You can also book the theory test online from the booking section on the same site
The Practical Test
Once your driving has reached an suitable level, you will be wanting to get your driving test booked. The timescale for bookings can vary one month to the next depending on the number of other learners applying around the same time. You should not just go ahead and book the test before checking that a car will be available first!
Pass Plus Courses
You have passed your driving test and can now drive by yourself. This is an exciting time – driving gives you freedom and independence. However, it is also very expensive – insurance premiums for new drivers can often far exceed the cost of a car.
Statistics show new drivers of any age are more likely to have an accident within the first two years of passing their test than at any other time in their driving career. It is basically down to a lack of experience. Insurance premiums reflect the increased risk.
WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT THIS?
Sign up for Pass Plus, a training scheme for new drivers. It is designed to develop your skills and knowledge to make you a safer driver.

EXTEND YOUR DRIVING EXPERIENCE SAFELY
Your initial driver training should provide you with a varied range of road and traffic conditions. However, this training often takes place within a familiar area, as there are time constraints and lesson objectives to consider. Pass Plus provides the opportunity to drive out of your local area, extending your driving experience safely
BUILD ON YOUR EXISTING SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
You already know how to drive so your Pass Plus sessions will be different to a driving lesson. You will develop your confidence and ability to deal with unfamiliar road and traffic conditions under the guidance of an experienced professional.
REDUCE YOUR RISK OF BEING IN A COLLISION
Awareness, anticipation and planning are key skills in recognising and dealing with hazards safely. These skills develop over time, but often not soon enough to prevent inexperienced drivers having a collision. The Pass Plus course is designed to help you develop these key skills quickly to keep you safer.
SAVE MONEY ON YOUR INSURANCE PREMIUMS
Many insurance companies offer discounts to new drivers who have completed the Pass Plus course, so it is worth shopping around for the best deals. Although the discount is only offered on the first year‘s insurance, if you stay claim free, you will begin to build your no claims bonus, leading to lower premiums year on year.
PASS PLUS MAKES SENSE FINANCIALLY AND COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
THE PASS PLUS COURSE
Designed by the Driving Standards Agency, Pass Plus aims to develop a positive approach to driving through two key factors – your attitude and your skills.
The course is organised into 6 modules
Introduction and town driving
All weather driving
Out of town driving and rural roads
You have to complete all modules and undertake at least 6 hours of training. The amount of time spent on each module will vary according to individual needs. You will not have to take another test - your instructor will continually assess your driving. To gain your certificate your driving needs to demonstrate you have ‘achieved‘ or ‘exceeded‘ the required skills and knowledge in each module.
