Breeze Through Your 2018 DVLA Theory Test

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

updated for 2018

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.

  • Collapse all
  • At what age can I apply for my provisional driving licence in the UK?

    The DVSA allows you to apply for a provisional driving licence when you’re 15 years and 9 months old. You can start driving a car when you’re 17, or a moped when you’re 16. You’ll need to pass your theory test (remember to book online or in person).
  • What documents do I need when applying for my licence in the UK?

    A valid form of identification:
    • UK passport
    • UK birth or adoption certificate, but this must be accompanied by one of the following:
      • National Insurance card or a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) showing your National Insurance number
      • Photocopy of the front page of a benefits book or an original benefits claim letter
      • P45, P60 or pay slip
      • Marriage certificate or divorce papers (decree nisi or absolute)
      • College or university union card, school record or PASS CitizenCard

  • Where do I go to apply for my driving licence in the UK?

    You can visit your local DVSA office, or apply online or by post.
  • How can I contact the UK DVSA office?

    The DVSA office can be reached at 0843 515 8104 or by going online to https://www.gov.uk/contact-the-dvla.
  • Who needs to accompany me for the theory and practical driving tests in the UK? A parent? A driving instructor?

    There are no requirements about who needs to accompany you.
  • Is a physical examination required to get a provisional licence in the UK?

    No, but the DVSA requires you to notify them if you have any eyesight problem or any other health condition that might affect your driving.
  • Do I need to take a vision test when applying for a UK driving licence?

    Yes, the DVSA requires you to take a vision test when you apply for a UK driving licence. You must have visual acuity of at least decimal 0.5 (6/12) measured on the Snellen scale (with glasses or contact lenses, if necessary).
  • Where can I get a photo taken for my UK driving licence?

    You can get your driving licence photo taken at any studio that takes passport photos. In fact, you can apply with your existing passport photo, as long as it’s current.
  • What colours should I avoid wearing when I get my driving licence picture taken?

    There are no colours you should avoid. Wear any colour you like!
  • Do I need to put up my hair when I get my driving licence picture taken?

    You may wear your hair the same way you’d normally wear it; however, it should not cover your face or your eyes. The purpose of the photo is to be able to identify who you really are. Besides, you wouldn’t want to hide that charming face!
  • What makeup should I wear when I get my driving licence picture taken?

    Just wear your normal makeup; however, the less makeup, the better. As long as you’re not wearing so much makeup that you’re unrecognizable, you’ll be quite all right!
  • Why is it best not to smile when you’re having your driving licence picture taken?

    The DVSA says you must look straight into the camera without any smiling or frowning. A straight face on the photo helps distinguish who you really are, which helps prevent identity fraud.
  • What are some tips for getting the best out of the driving licence picture?

    Simply look straight into the camera and keep a calm and relaxed face!
  • I have already applied for my UK licence. What do I do next?

    If you’ve applied for your UK licence and passed the theory and practical driving tests, you will be issued a pass certificate, which will be valid until you receive your driving licence — usually within four weeks. You can track your application online via the DVSA website.
  • I have a question that’s not answered above. What do I do?

    If you can’t find the answer to your question above, please use our Beginner Driver Q & A Section to get a professional answer from our experts! If you need any further assistance, you’re welcome to contact us directly at toptestscouk@gmail.com.

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. Revised two days before and still managed a decent score. Highly recommend learners to do all 12 mock tests as it helps a lot.

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

TopTests literally saved me from failing. 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!

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.

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.
