    I have my theory test tomorrow, and I need some advice about the different types of headlights and when to use them. I have looked through the highway code, but can't seem to find any difinitive answers.
    also, does anyone have any tips for the multiple choice questions, or is it a matter of just learning as many as possible of the more obscure ones. most of it is common sense of course, but i'm a bit worried because i have done several practise ones on the internet and scored from 38/50 upto 48/50

    If it looks like you should have them on, put them on.

    Can't go wrong.

    If the street-lights are on, the legal minimum required lighting is side-lights in a 30 but most just go straight to dipped head-lights, dipped headlights on other roads after dusk. Full-beam headlights should only be used on unlit roads when there are no other moving vehicles visible ahead (going the same way as you or coming towards) and if another vehicle comes into view you MUST switch back down to dipped until they have gone.

    The LED's that go round the light cluster?

    I think they are fantastic - you can see the car from much further away, especially at dawn or dusk when some people only have useless sidelights on.

    HID lamps (the really bright ones that some new cars have) have a blue tinge to them - they're not actually blue, but just look it.
