If you are using these free online theory quizzes to learn the Highway Code for your licence, practise until you get 100% regularly on the randomly generated 50-question test. This will almost guarantee that you will pass as the questions asked are almost identical to the ones in the actual theory exam. You will also need to take a Hazard Perception Test as part of the theory test requirements. There is a link to one at the end of every set of questions.
This website works on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Bookmark it on your smartphone and you can take the quizzes just before you go in to take the actual driving theory test and the knowledge will be fresh in your short-term memory, too.
When you're taking your practical test keep an eye on your speed - it's easy to exceed the limit, especially downhill. Make sure you slow down enough for corners, and don't get caught out by missing a stop sign. Your examiner will be looking for you to claim your road position while maintaining buffer zones between yourself and other traffic. Keep a safe following distance and remember to use your lifesaver before you manoeuvre.
