    How to pass the driving theory test.

    Phoenix Driving your local driving school in Cirencester and Cheltenham have come up with our top tips and advice on passing the driving theory test.

    1. Firstly you should talk to your driving instructor about when to take your theory test, and what study materials to use, book your theory on the official site see our learning tools page.

    2. The Driving standards agency are the people who are incharge of the driving tests both the theory and practical, so you may want to look at the DSA website.

    3. Practice makes perfect so aim not only to pass, but to pass well, studying the highway code, and driving the essential skills, and any other publications or cd roms or dvds that your driving instructor has recommended to you.

    4. How you prepare for the theory test is important, put aside time each week to study, keep a log of how you have done, regularly test your knowledge ask friends and family for help you if needed.

    5. Practice will a friend, you may have a friend who is learning to drive too, you could get together and practice, as they do say two heads are better than one.

    6. Okay so you have studied, practiced and tested your knowledge, your feeling confident, your driving instructor is happy that you can pass it, so now you need to make sure that you have the correct documents, on the day of the test you must bring both parts of your driving license, and your booking confirmation. If you have an old style license you must bring that and valid photographic identification, such as a passport.

    7. Get a good nights sleep and arrive at least ten minutes early, if you are late you may not be allowed to take the theory test.

    8. Listen to any instructions you are given by the staff at the theory test centre. Ask for clarification if unsure.

    9. After the test you will be given an envelope containing the result of your test, if the result is a pass then you will have a theory pass certificate, keep this safe and show it to your driving instructor, if you pass or fail the envelope will contain the areas that you got marked on, so make sure to revisit these areas.

    Study is the best way of making sure that you pass first time, so only take the theory test if you are ready.

    Phoenix Driving wish you well in your driving.
