Steering you in the right direction!!

Learning to drive for the first time can seem quite complicated, with all the forms you need to fill out and other stuff you have to remember. Don’t worry - I have created this page to give you everything you need to know about getting hold of your provisional licence. I have also included useful links to further sites that may be of interest to you when getting started.

Booking Your Test (Theory or Practical) …

The theory test is made up of two parts; a multiple choice section and a Hazard Perception test. The multiple choice bit is delivered using a touch screen computer and mouse, while the hazard perception test records your responses through the use of a computer mouse button.

You’ll need to pass both parts to successfully complete your theory test. If you pass one part and fail the other, you’ll fail the whole test, and will have to take both parts again.

Pass Plus …

You’ve passed your driving test – now you can drive on your own at last. But it doesn’t stop there; this is just the end of the beginning… Getting your own car will give you the independence you need. For a new driver, the cost of insurance can be sky high.

And the reason for this?

Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years of passing their test than at any other time in their driving career. Age doesn’t matter – it’s basically down to a lack of driving experience.

That’s where PASS PLUS comes in!

The Highway Code …

The Highway Code is essential reading for everybody learning to drive. It contains all of the rules and regulations that relate to driving in the UK. As a driver, it’s your duty to know these rules – and remember if you don’t abide by them, you’ll be breaking the law and could end up being prosecuted. This could lead to you losing your licence, so it’s worth getting to know what’s what!
