Can I learn to drive before I pass my theory test?
As a trusted driving school we get lots of questions asked about learning to drive etc. So we have decided to create blogs for all the FAQ’s about learning to drive. This blog post is part of our Frequently Asked Questions on learning to drive.
Yes is the short answer!
You can have driving lessons before you pass your theory test. We advise you to book your theory test and start revising for it as soon as possible.
Advantages of passing your theory test fast!
Even though you don’t need to pass your theory test before you start your driving lessons if you are looking to minimise the number of lessons you need and save money then booking and passing your theory test early on in your driving lessons will help you do this.
The main reasons for this are that you will have the knowledge of the rules, road markings and have a greater depth of understanding without the driving instructor having to go through everything and spend time explaining and giving you the knowledge. This will allow you to have more time practising instead of discussing the topics at the road-side.
Ways to practice your theory test.
We use Theory Test Pro and give our students access to it as part of our lessons. This allows the user to practice topic questions and decide what areas they need to practice and revise more. To have a quick test click on the banner below and sign up for a free quick test:
You will also need to know the Highway Code.
A lot of the theory test and driving is based on the highway code which is available for free on the government site: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-highway-code
