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, at Brum Driving School, we offer all of our new learners free access to Theory Test Pro. Using Theory Test Pro means you’re twice as likely to pass than the national average and it offers the chance to practise using all the official revision test questions licensed from the DVSA, the people who set the tests. Theory Test Pro is always up to date with the latest information and provides a realistic experience of what the theory test is like, as well as including an online version of the Highway Code. It is easy to use, and we have a lot of positive feedback from our learners who have used it.
