Welcome to our FREE mock theory test for UK learner drivers! This test was designed to prepare you for the actual DVLA test; that’s why the format of the questions and the scoring system are the same. You need to answer 43 out of 50 multiple-choice questions correctly to pass. While the DVLA test features a 57-minute time limit, we did not include that here. We believe you’re here to practise your skills, to remember the correct answers, and to get familiar with the exam format. If you do not know the correct answer to a question, we suggest you use the Hint (there is one for each question). You can retake our tests as many times as you need to; questions and answers are randomized every time you restart the test. If you find this free test helpful, tell your friends about it on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media channel you use. Good luck!
