Breeze Through Your Driving Theory Test

Just like the real thing. More effective than the Highway Code.

updated for 2017

You're one step closer to passing your official DVLA Theory Test

To help you get all the practice you need, we have prepared free mock driving theory tests that mimic the real test. Our questions for car and motorcycle are very similar (sometimes identical) to those in the official Driving Theory Test. Our mock tests for these types of vehicles use the same scoring system used by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), which means you’ll feel confident when you take the real test.

“Me and my sister passed our theory test today first try! I got 45/50 on multiple choice and 57/75 on hazard perception (hazard awareness). The only thing we used to revise was this website! I revised two days before and still managed a decent score! Highly recommend learners to do all 12 mock tests as it helps a lot.” ~ Zara Iqbal

“Just sat the theory test 2 days ago and passed. Suprised how many questions came up were from this site, only difference they are worded just slightly different like literally one or two words! It’s all just about the practise and repetition, do that and you will breeze through the test!” ~ Waseem Ahmed, Nelson, Lancashire

“Absolutely brilliantly accurate, got my theory Friday, good job I found this site!” ~ Aiden Bullock, Bristol

“Top Test literally saved me from failing. I booked my theory test and was revising exclusively using the ‘Theory Test Pro’ app. I randomly took the mock on this site and FAILED getting only 46%. The app sold a package explaining it had all the test material when it was actually missing SO much. There were an unbelievable amount of questions I had never even seen before. With this site I was able to practice the last 2 days before the test and pass first time with 49/50. I seriously recommend this site, saved me big time!” ~ Rich Campbell-Innes, Lichfield

“Passed my theory test largely thanks to learning through these tests rather than the DVSA app, which just tells you whether you pass or fail the mock test rather than telling you why answers are wrong. Definitely recommend this for anyone preparing to take their theory anytime soon.” ~ Richard Buxton, Liverpool

“I’m nearly 55 so when I failed my theory test first time I was gutted and I blamed myself for leaving it so late but because of this site I’m happy to say I passed on my 2nd attempt. For Theory test I got 46 out of 50 and hazard perception I got 63 out of 75. That’s an excellent pass for an over 50s granny. Thank you so much for your help ” ~ Gracemore Masawi, Bilston

“I just wanted to say a MILLION thank yous to this site. I passed my test today using only this site practicing all the mock exams. What was interesting and surprised me was that a lot of the questions were nearly exactly the same (verbatim) as what was on this site. Practice practice practice ALL the mock exams on this site, it is an excellent site, and you don’t need any other resources to pass this test.” ~ Jane Kurz

“Highly recommend doing all tests on this site a few times, helped me pass my theory test today. I can’t believe I passed, got 50 out of 50 on my theory and 61 out of 75 for my hazard perception. Owe this website a lot.” ~ Tamaryn Lombard

“Top tests is the best site for doing your theory. It is very convenient being touch screen friendly and gives you instant results for your performance. I would recommend this site any time.” ~ V Nathan

“One week before my theory test I started using this website, and by simply completing three or four of these practice tests a night I passed my theory test with flying colours! It is much more interesting and productive taking these practice tests than sitting down and reading through the highway code every night that’s for sure! For anyone looking for the best way to revise for their test, look no further!” ~ Andy Jones

“Thanks to this site I got my theory test with less than 5 days revision! The huge variety of questions allows you to understand so much about a certain topic, therefore allowing you to tackle any question with confidence!” ~ Tommy Leigh

“I practiced for my theory test here because I use my mobile and I can practice any time. I like that when making a mistake I find the explanation and that helped me to remember the answers.” ~ Eglal Elamin

“Just want to say a big thank you to this site, only revised a week before the exam. I took my test today and PASSED 48 out of 50. I suggest you practice all the tests on the website before taking the test. An hour of revision a day is effective enough, too much will just bore you. Most of the questions will appear in the exam so practice everything until you get it right. The questions will either be exactly the same as the website or might be worded slightly different so make sure you concentrate. THANK YOU TOP TESTS!!!” ~ K Bostan

“Thanks to TopTests I managed to get 50/50. Here are a few tips on passing the test. Read through the Highway Code at least once. Do all the mock theory tests on TopTests. Day before the test, go over all the questions you got wrong. On the day of your day, do not panic. Just be cool, calm and collected. All the best to anyone who will take the test.” ~ Obediah Sarupinda

“I passed using just these and the GOV.UK website, only two questions on the real test were not on these mocks, so I would highly recommend. The theory test layout is the same as GOV.UK but these examples are almost word for word. Good Luck.” ~ Ste Johnstone

“Great resource for practice of the Theory and was a great help, I just kept practicing with it until I was getting at least 80% scores and that worked for me. The only pity is no Hazard Test practice, the way the Theory test is laid out, I feel sure this site would have a great Hazard practice too (some sites had tiny video, making it a whole lot harder than it needed to be. But the Theory and Road signs on here are excellent, I especially recommend the Marathon Practice!” ~ Jon B

“Great site, failed three times, however used this site & Highway code & PASSED! Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Be aware of tram, documents & catalytic converter questions in the official theory test. If you revise & put the work in you will pass. Just wish I had found it sooner!” ~ Bailey Petterson

“Just passed my theory test after 3 days of using this website and doing all of the mock tests. Most positive point: the wording of the mock tests this website gives forces you to read the questions properly and they give hints! Things to improve: A few of the questions in my test were not on this website so make sure you do a bit more background reading! Overall thoughts: The mock tests were helpful and up to date, well worthwhile :) Thanks!” ~ Khelsea Robinson

“Great website, been using for a week and really really really truly helped me with my test which I passed first time round and most of the stuff on here is relevant to every question that will be asked on the site. Treasure this site as it shouldn’t be free lol thank the creator.” ~ Ernie M.

“Just passed my theory test today! Found this website a couple days ago and had been working my way through the test practices until last night. Believe it or not, I failed twice before and probably wouldn’t have passed without doing that. I tried each one in turn, then reviewed them and jotted down the ones from each test which I thought I might get stuck on. I then tried each test again until I was getting only one or less wrong on each. My approach the first and second times were to memorize the highway code. It didn’t help at all as there was too much to remember, so I sat each feeling like (and finding) I’d missed out so much. I think there was only about one question I sat in the test today which I had never come across, the re st were all in the practice tests — even if worded a little differently, they were the general gist. MORAL OF THE STORY: USE THESE PRACTICE TESTS, THEY REALLY REALLY HELP.” ~ Livvy R

“I attempted all mock tests and marathon tests as well before I went to appear in my theory test. People suggested me some other books but I just relied on these practice tests as it almost covered everything. I cleared the test with 49 out of 50 in multiple choice questions and 60 out of 75 in hazard test with certificate no.374517135. There was only 1 question which was not in practice tests and that was a technical question. I prepared myself in 1 week. Thanks to this website. It is very helpful and I strongly recommend to other new drivers to rely on this website and success will follow you. The only tip is you must understand the logic behind every answer and understand it properly cuz the questions can be in a different form though the subject is same in actual theory paper. Thanks a lot.” ~ M.Bedi
