The theory test consists of two parts, multiple choice questions followed by a hazard perception test Preparing for your theory test is essential and there are many books and websites which can help you prepare. We highly recommend students are familiar with at least the highway code. All our instructors offer free theory help and this is generally taught during your lessons whilst you are learning the practical side of driving. If you have any questions just ask your instructor or get in touch with us.
