Try a random selection of questions for your car theory test which covers all the Highway Code sections.

Show Me, Tell Me

Questions for the show me, tell me section where you explain to the examiner how to operate and check specific parts of your car.

On your full category B1 car licence you can drive vehicles up to 3,500kg Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM) with up to 8 passenger seats (with a trailer up to 750kg). You can also tow heavier trailers if the total weight of vehicle and trailer isn’t more than 3,500kg. You can drive motor tricycles with a power output higher than 15kW if you are over 21 years old. Choose carefully when you learn to drive: if you get your licence using an automatic car you will be restricted to only driving cars with an automatic gearbox and will be issued a Category B auto licence. You can obtain a Category B+E licence entitling you to drive a vehicle with a trailer that has a combined weight more than 3,500kg.

When practising these mock theory tests, keep going 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.

Safe driving on your new driver's licence

Driving between midnight and 6am is the most dangerous time. Avoid driving during these times unless it's absolutely necessary.

Passengers are one of the biggest causes of distractions that can lead to an accident. If they're being rowdy, tell them you need to concentrate on the road.

Don't feel the need to compete with other drivers. Let them do their thing; you just need to focus on making progress in your own time.

Alcohol, illegal drugs and some legal drugs can affect your driving, so steer clear of them.

Slow down for bends.

Make sure everyone's wearing a seatbelt.

Make sure your insurance is current - it's an offence to drive without insurance.
