Prepare Effectively for the Final Exam

This 7th mock tests, is a full test with 50 exam questions and answers. The purpose is to prepare you for the final exam.

Most test takers get stressed before their final exam. This often results in bad performance.

Mock tests can limit that stress. Passing a full mock test will boost your confidence. Even if exam questions aren’t always identical, you can expect all of them to be very similar.

Remember, you shouldn’t just memorise questions and answers. Do research. Check facts in the Highway Code. Try to get acquainted with the basic strategies of reasoning, either verbal or non-verbal.

Start practising well ahead of the final exam and study daily. Mastering the Highway Code doesn’t happen overnight.

How Likely are You to Fail the Examination?

Here are some data for you (2015):

  • About 1.5m tests are taken every year
  • More than half of all test takers fail
  • Pass rate of the driving test in the UK is about 46%
  • 110 is the highest number of times a person has failed the theory test
  • 36 is the highest number of times the practical test has been failed

So, how can you improve your chances?

Mock tests are a proven way of learning quicker and also passing the car theory test.

It is also important for you to understand hazard perception since it is a part of the examination. The first step in recognising a hazard is to understand which situations that are more hazardous than others. Such situations are mentioned in the U.K. Highway Code and they are used in the hazard perception test.
