Theory & practice

Theory Test

Our driving instructors prepare you for the theory test which every learner needs to pass. You'll also receive valuable tips and information.

The Test can be taken locally in Chelmsford or Ipswich


Part one is a multiple choice test comprising of 50 questions, the pass mark is 43.

Part two is a hazard perception test comprising a number of video clips, the pass mark is 44.


Practical Test

The Driving Standards Agency recommends that most learners take at least 45 hours of professional tuition. 
Your driving test will start with an eyesight check and some vehicle safety questions. The driving part of your test will last about 35 to 38 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises. You can make up to 15 minor driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test.
