How to pass your theory test

Jump to

If you want to pass your theory test, there’s no substitute for preparing thoroughly.  More than half of candidates fail their theory test and the most common cause is a lack of preparation, so get revising now if your test is due. Make it easy for yourself by purchasing some theory test aids; a few pounds spent now could save you a load of time, hassle and cost in the future.

What help can I get for the theory test?

It’s not just a lack of preparation that catches out some candidates. Some fail because they don’t know what’s expected of them. Others may have problems reading and/or writing, but if that applies to you there’s help available. You could be given extra time to answer the questions, or if you prefer you can listen to the questions rather than read them.

If you have hearing problems, the last thing you’ll want is more stuff being spoken instead of written down. That’s why the DVSA can help with a video of the test in British Sign Language. This will display on the computer screen, so you can get through your test more comfortably.

Remember that if you need any special arrangements you’ll need to make them when you book your test.
