Preparing for your Theory Test
In order to prepare yourself for your theory test, we would recommend reading and studying the essential books below. Perhaps you can ask a friend or family member to help test you? However you prefer to study, unfortunately there aren’t any shortcuts to getting the knowledge you need to pass the theory test.
- The Highway Code – Vital reading for all road users, to help us all be considerate towards each other, particularly vulnerable road users. Many of the rules in here are legal requirements.
- Know Your Traffic Signs – Traffic signs are essential to directing, controlling and informing the behaviour of all road users, to make our roads as safe as possible for everyone.
- Driving – The Essential Skills – The DVSA’s official guide to safe driving, with advice for learners, professional drivers and instructors.
In addition to the books, many learners find it useful to practise on the go, using one of the theory test apps that are available. Here at Brum Driving School, we recommend Driving Test Success, the UK’s number 1 Theory Test App. This award-winning app allows you to revise for your theory test with full confidence, using their structured Learner Plan. They even offer your test fee back if you don’t pass (terms and conditions apply). The 4 in 1 Driving Test Success app contains all the latest DVSA Theory test questions, interactive hazard perception clips, The Highway Code and all the UK road signs.
