Study Help with a 6th Mock Test

Like previous mock tests, it has 20 questions from a larger pool. Answers are found at the end of the test.

Our Mission is to Prepare You Well

Our mission is to offer free study help and prepare all drivers to be safe on the road.

But we can all help. We strongly believe that parents and teachers should engage more in how to improve the skills of young drivers. It will make our roads safer for everyone.

Learning is a Slow Process

Learning the rules of the road and safe driving techniques is a slow process. Most of your driving skills will come with experience. But without a thorough knowledge of the basics, experience can also lead you astray. You may think you know what to do in certain situations, but in reality, you don’t. Therefore, knowledge is extremely important.

When you have decided to get a driving licence, use our study help and take your studies seriously. Don’t study just to pass the examination. Study to be the best driver you can be.

Should You Wait to Get Your Driving Licence?

Car accidents are a leading cause of death for teenagers in Great Britain and in many other countries. This may be why teenagers today wait longer before they get their licence to drive. Driving is not the central focus like it was 20 years ago. But in suburban and rural areas, it can still be important to get the privilege to drive at an early age.

In England, Scotland and Wales every new driver must pass a theory test, then a practical road test before they can get a full driving licence. The minimum age to hold the full car licence is 17 years, or 16 years if you can claim a mobility benefit.

We don’t believe that age is a main problem when it comes to road safety; things like maturity, attitude and knowledge are.
