There are two parts to the theory test – multiple choice questions and hazard perception – both are taken on the same day.
There are many resources out there for you to practise and on the www.gov.uk website there is a practice test. There’s also an app available from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.
The theory test used to cost £31, however, as of October 1, 2014, it now costs £25. If you fail, you will need to pay the full price again for a retest, so revise hard.
