So you think you’re ready to hit the road but one last hurdle remains – the theory test. At Tudor Driving School we like to bring out the best driver possible in all our students and all this takes is little faith, confidence and passion from our instructors in you. The theory test is something outside of our curation but we want to ensure that come the big day, you’ll be confident in the knowledge we’ve bestowed upon you.
There are several important things to consider in the lead up to your theory test, chief among them is revision. The Tudor Driving School website contains a special section with an extensive list of official safety questions which shall arise in your test and theory, so please take the time to read over these and refresh your memory. The theory test will take place in two halves, the first will contain 50 multiple choice questions out of a potential 1000. You’ll need a minimum of 43 correct answers to pass onto the next area of the test – hazard perception. Before we discuss this, we’d like to recommend your investment in the official Driving School Agency theory test handbook which is available at all respectable high street and online book retailers. The handbook is especially useful for its imagery, example questions and revision tips.
Next, you’ll want to consider your knowledge of hazard perception. This is where most people trip up come the test as it requires a keen, educated eye and a precise hand. The test will run through a variety of video clips which depict a variation of common driving hazards, it’ll be up to you to isolate and inform what these hazards are on screen. There are websites and services which can assist you in preparation for this such as Drive IQ.
It may seem daunting but revision is the key, don’t procrastinate and put in the time. Get friends and family to test you from the handbook, do blind tests and play to your strengths as a learner. You’ll be fine.
