Course overview

This course is funded by the West Midlands Combined Authority Before you can take your practical driving test you must book and pass your driving theory test. Each time you take your driving theory test it costs £23 so it makes sense to be well prepared to avoid having to retake it. This course has been designed to help with just that. We'll help you learn all the important facts and information required to be fully ready for your test.

Course description

The UK Driving Theory test is done online and covers the British Highway Code, traffic signs, essential driving skills and hazard perception. The test is in English and some of the language may be new for people who are learning English.

During your time on this course you will learn:

  • the UK Highway Code

  • the vocabulary associated with driving in the UK

  • about different types of transport in the UK

  • how to recognise different road traffic signs and what they mean

  • how to recognise different road incidents and how to react to them

  • how to identify road hazards so you can effectively avoid them

  • how to practice the online driving theory test so you are confident using the computer and well prepared with all the information you need.
