7 Ways to Help You Pass Your Driving Theory Test

Have you ever felt nervous about taking a driving theory test? If so, don’t worry! There are plenty of people who have been in your shoes. The key to success is preparation and practice. We have put together seven expert tips to help you prepare for the EZ Licence driving theory test that will give you an unbeatable chance of passing on your first attempt.

Learn the Highway Code

One of the most important things to do when preparing for a driving theory test is to learn all you can from The Highway Code. This book covers everything from basic rules and regulations, such as wearing your seatbelt or using a mobile phone while driving, to more advanced topics like road safety signs and what they mean.

Use Practice Tests

Once you have learned the basics, it’s time to put your new skills into practice. There are plenty of free driving theory test practice tests available online that can help you get used to what types of questions might come up on the day. These are designed to be as close in style and difficulty level as possible while being fully official and legally compliant.

Take the Right Amount of Practice Tests

It’s important to take enough practise tests so you know all the different types of questions that might come up on your driving theory test, but it is equally as vital not to overdo things! You don’t want to get too familiar with any of the questions you might see, as this could cause problems when it comes to your actual test. A good rule of thumb is to take no more than six practice tests before taking your driving theory test.

Take Regular Breaks Between Practice Tests

Taking regular breaks between each of your practice tests can be a great way to help yourself stay on top when it comes to your driving theory test. It is recommended that you take a five-minute break between each practice question, but if this means taking more time than usual or slowing down your progress too much, then you can always start them back-to-back without breaks until you have reached the number of tests required for success.

Know How to Keep Your Vehicle Safe

You can’t pass a driving theory test unless you know how to keep yourself and everyone else safe on the road. However, with so many different safety rules, it can sometimes be hard to remember them all! Fortunately, plenty of great apps are available that will help you learn these important skills through practice questions and fun games.


If you are using an iPhone, one great option is the “Know your road” app from DSA. It includes more than 800 safety questions and covers a range of topics, such as safe driving techniques to avoid distractions while behind the wheel.

Understand Road Signs and Markings

Another important part of your EZ Licence driving theory test will be recognizing, understanding and giving the correct indications for road signs. While it might sound like an easy thing to do, knowing what each sign means can sometimes be harder than you think!


Fortunately, there are some great resources to help you get a grip on what each sign means and how it should be interpreted.


One of the best of these is our “Road Signs and Markings” e-book. This free resource covers everything from road markings like zebra crossings and double white lines all the way through to traffic signs like speed limits and no entry signs.


Have a Good Nights Sleep Before Your Driving Theory Test

It can be hard to sleep the night before an important driving theory test, but getting a good night’s rest is vital for your performance. Not only will you be in peak condition when it comes to remembering all of the key rules and regulations from The Highway Code, but you won’t become too tired if things get tough during the exam or start making silly mistakes.



When it comes to taking the driving theory test (or any test for that matter), always remember that preparation is key. So make sure you follow the tips and advice outlined in this blog post, and you should be more than ready to pass your driving theory test with flying colours.
