Learning to Drive and the Driving Test
Learning to drive usually takes over 40hrs of tuition. Some people
take more, and some take less. I will never give more lessons than
are needed. Click

The Theory test
This is a computer based test with two parts:
- The first is a series of multiple choice questions about driving
and the Highway Code. You must get more than 43/50 correct to pass.
- The second section is about Hazard Perception. Video clips
are played and you must click the mouse when a hazard (dangerous
You need to get at least 44 marks out of 75 to pass.
Both sections must be passed at the same time. There is approximately
a two week waiting list for the test which can be booked with the
DSA. It costs £25 to take the theory test.
I can help you with any difficult questions and help you practice
for the Hazard Perception Test.
The Practical Test
This involves driving around a set route as you would normally
drive. The route involves all types of roads and you will be asked
to do one manoeuvre (out of a possible four).
You will only fail if you disobey the rules of the road, or cause
a dangerous situation. This is called a Serious Fault. It is also
possible to fail by accumulating more than 15 Driver Faults which
are minor mistakes, although this is much less likely to happen.

I can give in depth help with both the theory and the practical
tests, including mock tests-practice tests just like the real thing.
