As an already experienced driver, the instructor will test your ability on your first lesson and decide which areas need improvement, again any wishes to cover certain areas of driving on your first lesson can be requested to the instructor before the lesson.
The next step, once you have started your driving lessons, is to work towards studying the theory. Some people might want to do this before booking any lessons, which is fine. The theory test quizzes your knowledge of the road, it is an online test in which you are asked 50 multiple choice questions. There is also the hazard perception part of the test where you will be shown a clips of different road situations and you must click the screen where there is a hazard, a hazard being anything that forces you to stop, slow down or change direction. The aim is spot the hazard as early as possible.
Once you’ve passed your theory test you can then book your practical driving test. You are tested on your ability to drive safely in different road and traffic conditions, and your ability to follow The Highway Code.
Remember, prepare yourself, use the road in accordance with The Highway Code , drive safely and responsibly in the traffic system, demonstrate developed skills, knowledge and understanding. Only take your test when you can do everything without instruction.
