What does the theory test involve?

There are 2 parts to the test:

You take them as a single test and you need to pass both of them to pass the test.

What do I need to study?

The questions that form the multiple-choice part of the theory test are based on these three books, which are available at lots of bookshops and online:

  • The Highway Code
  • Know your traffic signs
  • Driving – the essential skills

So these are what you need to study to ensure you know all the rules and skills that will appear in the test.
