On the day of your driving lesson, please bring your driving licence. If you don't have one, you can apply for one by clicking here. Alternatively, you will be able to get a application from your local post office. You need to be able to read new-style plates 20 meters away and 20.5 meters away for old-style plates. You will also need to do this on the day of your practical driving test. Failure to do so, the test will not be conducted and thus your test will be cancelled and fees will be lost.

Hazard perception (part 2)-
This part of the test includes computer based video clips with the pass mark (for cars and motorcycles) being 44 out of 75.
Results will be given for your theory and hazard perception test at the test centre after taking it.
You get a pass certificate if you pass your theory test. You'll need this when you book and take your practical test. Your theory test pass certificate lasts for 2 years after taking your test. You'll need to take and pass the theory again if you have not passed your practical test by then.
