Learn to drive in Swindon

As your may be aware, the DSA set pupils a practical test as well as a theory test. It is better to get the theory done as soon as possible, so you can then focus on your practical test.

As your may be aware, the DSA set pupils a practical test as well as a theory test. It is better to get the theory done as soon as possible, so you can then focus on your practical test. Though both can be done simultaneously, the practical test cannot be booked until the theory test has been passed. The tests can be booked through this link or alternatively I can book it for you.

Driving Theory Test

In the theory test 57 minutes will be allowed for completion. The first section will be the multiple choice test and a mark of 43 out of 50 is needed to pass. The second section is the hazard perception test and a pass mark of 44 out of 75 is needed. I recommend purchasing The Highway Code from your local book store, as it will inform you of all the rules and regulations you need regarding driving.

I will assist you with your theory test and will provide you with the relevant material needed, primarily a DVD which covers all aspects of the theory test. The cost of the theory test is £25 and can be booked online at the DSA website , or I can book it for you.

Practical Driving Test

This test will last about 35-40 minutes, assessing your general driving by taking you through various traffic and road conditions coupled with a number of manoeuvres. The examiner will asses your driving and make notes during the test, debriefing you at the end of the test. 

The examiner needs to see that you can demonstrate a professional driving style, with due care and attention to other road users. You are allowed up to 15 minor mistakes, but no major or serious faults. Committing even one of these will result in failure. 

As of October 2010 the test will change somewhat, and will introduce a new aspect whereby the student must demonstrate independent driving. The student will still receive verbal directions, but will need to read road signs and follow directions. 

The cost of the practical test £62 pounds; it can be booked online  or I can book it for you.
