THE DVSA THEORY TEST
THE COST OF THE DVSA THEORY TEST (CAR)
On the day of your THEORY TEST, you will need to take the following driving documents listed below:
Your PLASTIC PHOTOCARD LICENCE
If you have the old-style paper licence without a photo you must bring the licence and a valid passport as proof of identity.
Please note: If you do not show the required documents you will not be allowed to take the test and you will lose your fee.
CANDIDATES MUST PASS BOTH THE THEORY AND HAZARD PERCEPTION SECTIONS IN ONE SITTING IN ORDER TO PASS THE THEORY TEST.
IF YOU FAIL YOUR DVSA THEORY TEST
For your information: You can book another DVSA Theory Test via the internet or by telephone on the same day after failing your test.
Please note: The DVSA will not allow you to take another DVSA Theory Test until three clear working days have passed from your failed test date. Saturday is classed as a working day.
Please note: Bookings will be subject to DVSA Theory Test availability.
YOU CANNOT APPLY FOR YOUR DVSA PRACTICAL DRIVING TEST UNTIL YOU HAVE PASSED YOUR THEORY TEST.
After passing the Theory Test you have a two year period in which to successfully pass the DVSA Practical Driving Test.
If you do not pass the DVSA Practical Driving Test within that period you must retake the Theory Test once again.

Why know your traffic signs?
Traffic signs play a vital role in directing, informing and controlling road users’ behaviour in an effort to make the roads as safe as possible for everyone.
This makes a knowledge of traffic signs essential.
Not just for new drivers or riders needing to pass their theory test, but for all road users, including experienced professional drivers.
Keeping up to date
We live in times of change. Society, technology and the economy all play their part in changing the way we travel.
New road signs conveying new messages and in new formats are introduced from time to time.
Drivers or riders who passed their driving test a few years ago need to keep up to date or run the risk of failing to understand or comply with recently introduced signs.
HAVING EXPERIENCE IS ALL VERY WELL
BUT ITS NOT ENOUGH
IF YOUR KNOWLEDGE IS OUT OF DATE !
