Driving Theory

Driving Ahead is a short course for people who want
to know more about the driving theory test.

The course covers road signs, road markings, speed limits and stopping distances, the hazard perception test and more.

Whether you have tried the driving theory test before, or are a complete beginner, driving theory can help you get closer to passing your test.

The course is targeted at individuals who need a little extra support with their reading, writing and numbers.

Every week the course covers a different driving theory subject, and you also get a chance to practice the test with support from our tutors. In the last year, several of our learners have gone on to pass their theory test, many have moved on to driving lessons, and we've heard from several learners that they've passed their practical! 

Whether or not you come on the course, residents of West Lothian can practice at home or at the library using the Safe Driving for Life website.

"The driving theory course has helped me to learn and understand more about the test.
I didn't know much when I started. I now feel more confident in going to take my test."
