    I've been having driving lessons for about a year now and I'm ready for my test. However, I am absolutely petrified of even booking my theory. I've been practicing every now and again, but sometimes I get to the first question and just can't bring myself to do it because it frustrates me so much! I've passed the practice ones a few times, but more often than not I fail on stupid questions that either a) I have no reason to know, or b) I don't have a bloody clue!
    It's making me feel pretty dumb, and as someone who's always done well academically, its getting me down.
    How can I revise for my theory? I mean ways other than just doing the test over and over.

    Honestly, using the app and just learning from your mistakes Is pretty much your only way of passing. You need to understand that there will be questions you don't know the answer to, when I did my test I didn't know every answer and of course I got a few wrong. There's a limited amount of questions so if your practice long enough you'll definitely get to know them like the back of your hand. Just try to be patient, don't get too determined when practicing and understand that it's okay to fail.

    Hi there! :wavey:

    This thread should be in the Learning to drive forum. I'll just tag AngryJellyfish to get this moved over there

    Hi! Hows the theory revision going?
    One tip, book it now, your theory! This is because its like a 2-4 week waiting list, and you need this before you even book your actual test, which is another 6-8 week waiting list. This means if you don't find a cancellation or anything, it will be the new test which you will take! Keep revising with the app. I do it every now and then, even though I'm only 16. I like to do it in advance

    Good luck! You got it!

    Just get the official DVSA Theory test app it costs £5 and most the questions are literally exactly the same. For hazard perception just get another app that costs a couple of quid and go through all the videos. Trust me it's not hard most of it is common sense and the same as the app questions.
