driving theory test

The Theory Test is a computerised test consisting of multiple-choice questions about the theory of driving, rules, laws, and the Highway Code.  It is followed by a video-based hazard perception test, which is designed to test your ability to observe potential hazards both on and around the road. 
You must have passed the Theory Test before you can take the practical part of your driving test.  However, as long as you have a provisional licence you can begin learning to drive on the roads before taking the Theory Test. 
Many people think the theory is boring, but it is equally as important as the practical part of driving - you’ll see this as you begin to learn to drive.  You’ll need to be aware of, and able to apply the theory at all times when you’re driving. 

It is important to learn and remember the theory and the Highway Code – your Mint driving instructor will give you tips on how to revise and where to get revision material from.  As soon as you feel ready you can book your Theory Test online at, by calling 0300 200 1122, or your Mint instructor can do it for you.  You’ll need to take both parts of your licence and your appointment letter with you when you go.
