Did you know?
You are not allowed to book a practical driving test until you have sat and passed the theory test. However, you are allowed to start driving lessons before taking the theory test (indeed, this approach is encouraged as practicing driving will reinforce the theoretical side, and your Instructor can help you prepare for the theory exam).
The Driving Standards Agency will ask for a theory pass certificate number to be quoted when booking the practical test, and on the day of the practical test, you will need to present your theory pass certificate to the driver examiner.
You have a maximum of 2 years on passing the theory test to pass the practical driving test. Failure to do so would mean having to re-sit and pass the theory test again.
