Theory test: cars

2. Theory test revision and practice

You can use books and software to revise for the theory test and take practice tests.

Multiple-choice questions

The questions in the theory test are based on 3 books:

Study these to learn the rules and skills you’ll be tested on.

You can buy them from most high street and online book shops.

Take a practice test

Take a practice theory test to check how much you’ve learnt. It only includes the multiple-choice questions - it doesn’t include the hazard perception part.

The practice questions aren’t used in the real test, but they’re based on the same topics as the test.

Hazard perception test

Buy the official guide to hazard perception for your PC or Mac to learn hazard perception skills and then test them.

You can buy it from most high street and online bookstores.

Translations into foreign languages

Some official books and software are translated into other languages by approved organisations.

However, you can only take the test in English, Welsh or British Sign Language.
