Often viewed as the most tedious part of learning to drive, the theory test is particularly important for the safety of new drivers and others on the roads. Once you start to look through the highway code, you'll be surprised at how much you already know from being a passenger. This article will give you some hot tips for passing your driving theory test.
When you are revising for your driving theory test, there are a number of resources available to you which will help you to pass the test and allow you to get driving a car. You'll need to have applied for a provisional license which you can do through DSA online (Driving standards agency). The test itself is split up into multiple choice questions on the highway code, and an interactive hazard perception section. It is a good idea to purchase a driving CD ROM or theory CD which has practice tests. It is best to study the highway code before you do the tests so that you can get a real idea of how you would do on the real thing. You can purchase the highway code at most good bookshops in the driving books section. A top revision tip is to study the highway code, and then try and draw some of the signs and see which ones you forget. Additionally, make yourself mini tests, and posters to help stimulate your memory.
When you are ready for your test, you can make a booking online up to three months before your
17th birthday. However, remember that under 17 years old, driving is not permitted on the roads. You can book your test online through a DSA booking system. Stay calm On the day of your test, the most important thing is to stay calm. To help this, you can try breathing in for seven seconds, and out for eleven, which will help to slow your breathing. Remember at this point, you will have studied hard and deserve to pass. Take your time and don't be put off by the clock, as it's better to get the ones that you do answer right, than to rush and make more mistakes. Passing your theory test is the first step from being a learner to being a fully fledged driver, so get studying so that you can get on the roads!
