The Theory Test
Preparing to learn to drive:

Learning to drive is just as much about knowing how to be safe on the roads as it is about handling the car. Therefore much of the Theory Test concentrates on ‘reading the road’ so that learners understand how to avoid accidents.


The Theory Test for Car Drivers and Motorcyclist was introduced by the DVLA in July 1996.


It is designed to improve the safety of newly qualified riders and drivers by making them think carefully about the right attitudes needed to drive safely on today’s busy roads and reduce the risk of accidents.


The areas covered by the Theory Test include:

Driver attitude
  Traffic signs and regulations
  Effects of alcohol, drugs and fatigue on driver behaviour
  Safety and environmental aspects of vehicles

In September 2007 the Driving Theory Test was changed.


In addition to answering 50 multiple choice questions, you are also tested for hazard perception skills. You will need to pass both elements of the test at the same sitting to pass your theory test.


You’ll take your Driving Theory Test using a computer located at Doncaster’s Driving Standards Agency Theory Test Centre.


You’ll be required to register at the reception desk and allocated a booth containing a computer loaded with your personal theory test.
