Theory Exam Revision Runcorn

Here at Drive4Life, we are not just your number 1 local driving school, we also enjoy giving helpful tips and advice to other learners who are ready to take on their exam. Today we will be talking about how you should prepare yourself so that you’re ready to take your theory test. To prepare for your theory test, the Driver & Vehicle Agency recommends that you study the Highway Code. The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) publishes a wide range of official learning materials. These include books, CD-ROMs and DVDs, you can buy these from high street book stores or online.

 

Preparing for the theory test

The driving theory test has two parts:

  • Multiple choice questions
  • Hazard perception

1.       The multiple choice part:

To prepare for the multiple choice part of the theory test you should refer to the Highway Code.

The Highway Code is essential reading for you to have a chance in passing your theory. Many of the rules in the Code are legal requirements, and if you disobey these rules you are committing a criminal offence. You may be fined, given penalty points on your licence, or be disqualified from driving, which nobody who is on the road would like. In the most serious cases you may be sent to prison. Knowing and applying the rules contained in The Highway Code could significantly reduce road casualties and help you to pass the multiple choice part of the exam with ease.

 

Know your traffic signs                

Traffic signs play a vital role in directing, informing and controlling road users’ behaviour. This is to make the roads as safe as possible for everyone and makes having knowledge of traffic signs vital. There are three basic types of traffic sign – signs that give orders, signs that warn and signs that give information. Each type has a different shape. A further guide to the function of a sign is its colour.

 

The essential skills                      

The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) produces books in the essential skills range. The books provide everything you need to learn about, and maintain, safe driving or riding skills for life. The books contain:

 

  • Sections of text for motorcyclists, a free e-book for car drivers and full references throughout to help candidates learn and revise
  • Questions and answers for revision, including practice for case studies
  • The official DVSA explanations for every revision question, helping candidates fully understand the answer

The latest official software revision materials includes vast amounts of information to promote safe driving for life, and support for on-road learning. Candidates can:

 

  • Study background information on every topic, presented in an easy-to-remember way
  • Customise their practice by topic to see how much they’ve learnt
  • Sit unlimited mock tests which offer the closest experience to the real test
  • Monitor their progress at each step to find out exactly where they can further improve so they can tailor their revision

You can buy the essential skills range from most high street book shops. They are also available to order online or over the phone from The Stationery Office. With these materials and with a fair bit of usage, you could end up passing this exam the first time around!

2.       The hazard perception part:

The DVSA has developed a training DVD for the hazard perception test called ‘The Official Guide to Hazard Perception’. You can buy the DVD from most high street books shops. It is also available to order online or over the phone from The Stationery Office.

 

This DVD has information about:

  • Defining hazards
  • Looking for clues
  • The ‘mirror – signal – manoeuvre’ routine
  • Scanning and planning
  • Prioritising hazards
  • Cutting down the risks
  • Responding to hazards

The DVD also has a number of interactive examples of hazard perception video clips. The hazard perception part of the driving theory test has been updated using computer generated imagery (CGI).

Charlotte Smith, Halton: I was pretty close to taking my driving exam with another instructor, but the instructor I was with, kept saying I wasn’t ready (probably so I kept paying him). I found Drive4Life’s number on Google and gave them a call, after a quick conversation about what was happening, Pete understood straight away and booked me in for a lesson the next day. He told me that I was very close to being able to pass my exam and that I would only need 3-5 more lessons to perfect my skills. I ended up passing the exam first time and it was because of the great advice, tips and learning that Pete gave me whilst we were driving around the Widnes & Runcorn areas.

 

David James, Halton: I had a couple of lessons when I first turned 18, but I stopped due to not being able to afford it. With me recently turning 21 and in full time work now, I decided to give it another go. I already knew the basics and I only needed a refresher on the roads to get me back up to speed. I ended up passing my exams first time and it was all because of the motivation and confidence that was given to me from my driving instructor.

Sean Walker, Widnes: I did a crash course in driving a year ago, where I undertook 15 lessons in just over 2 weeks. But I was feeling rusty with my skills and I lost a bit of confidence when I was thinking about being on the road again. I gave Pete from Drive4Life a call and he understood what I was getting at. I only booked 5 lessons from him as a mini-refresher before taking my exam. Thanks to the extra skills he taught me along with the motivating words of encouragement, I ended up passing the exam first time around! Thanks Pete, I’ve already recommended your services to my close friends.
