Theory and Hazard Perception Test

A1 Autodrive Driving School suggests it is unnecessary to pass your Theory Test prior to beginning your driving lessons; in fact it will enhance both the Theory study and the driving lessons if both are undertaken simultaneously
During your driving lessons you will receive coaching enabling you to pass your Theory and Hazard Perception Test

A1 Autodrive Driving School recommends Focus All Tests software and will supply this to you at a fraction of the normal shop cost. Focus software is, in our opinion, as good as (DSA) Driving Standards Agency marketed software, but at a fraction of the cost

This software is available free from A1 Autodrive Driving School with some starter packages

The Focus software covers Theory Test in exactly the same format as the real DSA Test i.e. a Multiple Question Test, where you are required to identify mostly one answer out of four. Occasionally there will multiple answers within the same question
