Taking mock driving tests

A mock driving test is a practice driving test that you do with your driving instructor.

You’d never take any other tests without doing some practice ones first. And a driving test is no different. You probably took more than one mock theory test before taking the real thing.

Taking a mock driving test is a great way of checking you have all the skills you need to drive safely on your own. They also help you understand if you’re ready to take your driving test.

Research shows that people who take a mock test are 40% more likely to pass the real thing.

In this section you’ll find out about:

  • the main reasons why you should take a mock test
  • why common reasons for skipping mock driving tests might make it harder for you to pass your driving test
  • how to arrange a mock test
  • what your mock test should include

Not feeling completely prepared?

Only take your driving test if you’re feeling completely prepared.

You can move your driving test back if you’re not feeling quite ready yet.

It’s free to change your appointment time, as long as you do it at least 3 full working days (Mondays to Saturdays) before your test.
