Preparing for the theory test.
The following tools and information are available to help you practice and prepare for both parts of the theory test.
To prepare for your theory test, the Driver & Vehicle Agency recommends that you study the Highway Code, which is a set of mandatory rules, guides, advice, and information for all road users in the United Kingdom. Its objective is to promote road safety.
