The Official Highway Code is available online and it's free. For learner drivers it's essential for learning about road safety, road signs and markings, laws for road users and all the requirements for pupils taking driving lessons. There's also a useful safety code section for new drivers who have passed their test but have yet to gain driving experience.
Book your Theory Test online at Directgov. This is the official service for booking your DSA driving theory test and there's no extra booking fee, so you only pay test costs. You will need your provisional licence number to book online.
Book your Practical Driving Test online. This service is available from 6am to midnight and is the official method of booking your driving test. To book online you'll need your provisional driving licence number and your theory test certificate number and pass date.
