The test

There are two parts to the test.

 

Part one  - Theory

This consists of 2 elements, a multiple choice segment and a hazard perception test.

You can study for these whilst you are taking practical lessons but the sooner you start the better. You must pass this before you are able to take the practical exam.

 

Part two—Practical

The test lasts for approximately 35-40 minutes and is designed to assess your practical ability to drive. Once you have passed you can apply for your full UK licence.
