Theory Test 筆試
With My Own Experience
Get the DVSA theory app - The Official DVSA Theory Test Kit (£4.99)(https://www.safedrivingforlife.info/shop/product/official-dvsa-theory-test-kit-app-app)
This app includes all the theory questions and hazard perception videos for you to practice
I personally think this is more useful than getting books, CDs (I have tried)
I passed my theory test for the 1 st time by just using this app
You can also practice some example questions on the official website (https://www.gov.uk/take-practice-theory-test?step-by-step-nav=e01e924b-9c7c-4c71-8241-66a575c2f61f )
Your council library website might have theory questions for you to practice as well. (You will need to sign up for a library card and account at your local library.)

Finding a Driving Instructor
From Personal Experience:
Private instructors are better than driving schools.
Private instructors are more flexible and less expensive.
Look out for driving school cars in your town – Take a picture of them and contact the
You may find many instructors in your area are very busy and cannot take up any new students.
Just have to be patient and ask when they might be available.
Recommendation from friends
Search on Twitter and Facebook for your local instructors – They tend to have their own page.
Expect you may have more than one instructor as the first one doesn’t work out
注意經過的學神車(通常有電話貼在車上) – 可以直接聯繫師傅
How Much are the Lessons?
Depend on your areas
Could be between £25-£35 per hour
Pay as you go – You pay every time for your lesson.
○ 1 hour
○ 2 hours (some instructors will only offer a 2-hours lesson every time you take a lesson with them)
Bulk purchase – Buy 10 lessons in one go and on average it works out cheaper.
○ Personal experience: I prefer the pay as you go method with flexibility to choose having 1- or 2-hours lessons depending on your needs and skills.
National average – Need 44 hours of driving lessons. In reality, people drive and practice more than 44 hours as they use their parent’s car and have their parents sitting next to them to practice/driving to school.
You can practice driving in a car (ensure you are insured on the car) with someone who is over 21 years old and has a full car driving licence for 3 years.
Pay as you go – 每一次上堂每次計錢
○ 2小時 (有些師傅規定每次要學兩小時)
個人經驗：我更喜歡pay as you go (可以根據您自己的需求而選擇上1或2個小時的課程)。
您可以與21歲以上並擁有3年正式駕駛執照的人一起練習(需要確保你自己已購買汽車保險) ( https://www.gov.uk/driving-lessons-learning-to-drive/practising-with-family-or-friends )
Book a Driving Practical Test
You can book your driving test when your driving instructor thinks you are ready.
You will be using your instructor car. Different instructors charge differently on how much you need to pay to rent their car. Can range from £50-80.
You can also use your own car to do the driving test.
Driving test costs – Car - £62
Pick your local test centre – You should know that as you have been practicing in the area and routes.
You find out your result immediately after your test.
If you did not pass – will have to wait for the next available slot for a next test (2 weeks to 1 month). If you pass – congratulations! Exchange your provisional to full driving licence (discussed in Part 1).
選擇當考試中心 – 您應該知道自己的考試中心 (一直在練習附近的路線)
如果您沒有通過路試 – 必須等待下一次的考試期 (2周至1個月)
如果您通過路試 – 恭喜您！ 您的暫准駕駛執照 (P牌) 可以換成正式的駕駛執照 (Part 1)
