- Booking your test
To pass the test, you need to book the test! Remember that as soon as it is passed, you have 2 years to pass your practical before you need to redo the theory. There’s 160 theory test centres in the UK, and most of them are bound to be fully booked for the near future, so book early.
- Get the book
The first thing you need to look at is the old-school book, you can buy these online but someone you know is bound to have one lying about. Get to grips with the basics, e.g. how the questions are laid out and what you need to pass.
- Try an online quiz or phone app
Mock tests are your best friend, it’s true that you learn from your mistakes. Get a reliable mock test and keep trying until you get a high mark. Once you make a mistake on one question, you are bound to get it right the next time.
- Don’t Give Up
It’s worth putting in the hours to pass this test. Just think of how you’ll feel when you pass. Keep revising and practicing until the day and you are sure to pass.
- Get others to help you
Practicing with friends and family can help make things more memorable and make it a bit less boring.
- Know what you’re in for
Be properly prepared for the test and know what it will entail. Find out what things you need to take with you like your provisional licence.
- Know your hazards
The hazard perception block in the test will require you to watch videos and select when and where you see a hazard. For this you need to know which things to look out for, so do some practice ones online to test your ability first.
- Start looking for a learner car
Once the test is passed, you need to start thinking about your practical. Getting an affordable, reliable used car will help you massively. Dealerships such as Trade Cars and Commercials offer incredible prices for previously owned cars. This can work out cheaper in the long run than paying for lots of lessons and then buying a car after.
