Hi,

I have recently started getting driving lessons.

I have yet to take my theory test, and my instructor now tells me that I should get the theory test out of the way.

I did a test online and did the hazard perception on the CD and failed .

I want to get my theory test out of the way quickly, and now that I have my university assignments out of the way, I have more time.

Roughly, how long will it take me to revise for the test? Say 2 weeks?

Also, whats a good way of revising for this? Make use of websites?

Please share some tips and advise.

The way I revised was through using a book with all the questions in, and just working my way through. I didn't really revise hazard perception, I just used my common sense, or clicked every few seconds when I wasn't sure.. I passed first time, 49/50 for questions, can't remember what for the hazard perception.

It takes however long depending on the effort you put in.

I 'learnt' aka do the questions for all the chapters, took a break while doing whilst doing school and did 50 multiple choice there and then. Hazard perception is more of skills and actually concentrating on the boring clips. Do a couple of clicks per hazard but with a time space to try get as many points.

2-3 weeks should be enough. I used the CD.

I used the DrivingTestSuccess CD. It was really, really helpful. I also used theory apps on my phone, as well as paying extra attention when I was on a bus/in a car/walking on the street. Revised nearly every day for a couple of weeks and passed first time with 48/50 and 55/75

3-5 days of decent revision is enough, it's pretty straigtforward

I used this CD too! Literally all I used and found it really easy to use and so helpful. I did a few tests here and there for a few months (but not regularly enough to actually remember any of the information), and then did it all day the day before and the day of my test.
I got 47/50 and 58/75

It's wicked! I'd definitely recommend, and it was cheap as well. It really helped me with the HP. You got a good pass too!

I think 2 weeks is doable. I bought a DSA book full of practice questions( near 2000 questions) and I bought the "driving to success" DVD which had a load of mock tests and hazard perception tests. I Personally went over every section in the book and answered all the questions and just worked on the sections I did not do as well on. Then I did the practice mock tests over and over again until I was getting 50/50 , the same went for perception tests. A lot of its common sense and some you would know the answers because you would have done during your driving lessons. Good luck!
