How old do I need to be to start driving

This totally depends upon the number of lessons you
have each week and how you progress in each lesson. We usually recommend
that you have a two hour driving lesson once per week to ensure that you
make good progress. However, we will work around your requirements. Each
person learns at their own pace so during your lessons it can be assessed
how you are progressing and an estimate of the number of lessons
What does the theory test
The theory test is split into two parts -
multiple choice and hazard perception. Both of these are computer based.
You need to pass both parts of the test at the same time - if you fail one
part and pass the other you will fail the whole test. You cannot apply for
the practical test until you have passed your theory test. Once you have
passed your theory test it is valid for two years.
The first part
of the test consists of 50 multiple choice questions about the Highway
Code. You need to get 43 correct answers to pass this part. In the hazard
perception part you will be presented with a series of 14 video clips
which feature road scenes. In each scene there is at least one developing
hazard which you need to identify.
