Excited about getting to drive your first car?Â Well, you need to take a driving theory test before you can get your first full car or motorcycle driving license.Â The test, however, has some exceptions. If you hold a B1 license (3 or 4-wheeled light vehicle) then you do not need to take the car test. The other exception is if you hold a fully moped license issued after 1st July 1996 following a test, you donâ€™t need to take a motorcycle theory test.
If you need to add a new category to your already existing license, all you need to do is take another driving theory test. Say, for example, you need to have a motorcycle license you will need to take the motorcycle test before taking the motorcycle practical test. Itâ€™s however important to know that if you are upgrading within a new vehicle category, like from manual to automatic then you will not need to take the theory test.
The driving theory test has two parts. Part one is a multiple choice one while the other is a hazard perception test. One can choose to go through a practice session of the multiple choice questions to get used to the layout of the test. At the end of the practice session, the real test will begin. Some questions may require more than one answer.Â You just have under an hour to answer the questions and the pass mark, which is 43 out of 50. For those with reading problems, they may be added more time to answer the questions. Some questions are presented as real life experiences you may encounter while driving and a case study will most often be used.
In order to fully prepare for the test, it is important for all candidates despite having a driving experience to use the resource material available.Â Â The resource material is available either on an online bookstore or from high street bookshops. It is also important to know your traffic signs, study the Highway Code as well as the relevant book from DSAâ€™s driving skills series.
