If you want to drive a car or ride a motorcycle you’ll need to pass the driving theory test before booking either the car practical driving test or the motorcycle practical test.
You need to have a provisional driving licence to take your driving theory test.
There are 2 parts to the theory test:
the multiple choice part
the hazard perception part
Both parts of the test are taken on the same day. You must book your driving theory test in advance.
The theory test centre is run on behalf of the DVSA by Pearsons situated towards the bottom of the high street in Bangor.
The examiner will ask you to sign the DL25 form (copy below) just before the test starts to confirm that “the use of the test vehicle for the purposes of the test is fully covered by a valid policy of insurance which satisfies the requirements of the relevant legislation”
My insurance certificate is available for your inspection at all times.
The practical driving test
The practical driving test is designed to see if you:
can drive safely in different road and traffic conditions
know the Highway Code and can show this through your driving ability
As long as you show the standard required, you’ll pass your driving test.
There’s no minimum number of lessons you must have or hours you must practise driving before you take your test. There are no pass or fail quotas.
You’ll need to have passed your driving theory test before taking your practicaltest.
