Online Learning for the DVSA Car Test

Continue with this third FREE mock theory test. It has 20 questions and you will see correct answers at the end of the test.

You can take all our mock tests as many times as you need – until you are 100% ready! The test works on your phone, tablet, or computer. You can easily study at home, school, at the library, on the beach, or any place where you have some time to spare.

Each test has random questions from a larger bank of test questions, which means that each test will be slightly different.

Reaching the Perfect Score

If you reach the perfect score of 100% on more than one car test, you are most likely ready for the real thing. But don’t just memorise mock questions and answers. You are more likely to retain facts you truly understand or have studied thoroughly, rather than phrases you have just tried to memorise.

Are These the Real Questions?

DVSA has a bank of more than 1,000 driving car test questions and since they no longer publish the complete set, there is no way of knowing exactly which ones you will get when you take your real test.

Our mock questions are, however, very similar, or even identical, to the actual car theory test.

It is a good idea to always have the Highway Code handy. Read up on mistakes and try to understand why you missed a question. Did you misunderstand the question or answer? Did you read too fast? Or did you simply not know the answer?

Remember, structured learning instead of just memorising is an important key to success.
