In order to be allowed to drive unsupervised you must pass both the Theory and Practical Tests Your Driving Test
EDT offers a full, free of charge, booking service for both the driving theory test and the driving practical test. The charge made by the DVSA for each test is payable by the pupil. 

The Theory Driving Test
The theory driving test is the first test you must take, although you do not have to have passed it before you begin driving on the road. You will take the theory test at a local theory test centre. The first part of the theory test is a multiple choice test of questions chosen randomly from a question bank. The second part of the test is called 'Hazard Perception' and involves watching video clips of driving situations in which you must spot the developing hazard as quickly as possible. Both parts of the test are conducted at a computer screen and must be passed at the same time.

The Practical Driving Test
The practical driving test is designed to make sure that you can drive safely and that you can demonstrate, through your driving, a thorough knowledge of The Highway Code. The test will last about 40 minutes.

The examiner will firstly test your eyesight by asking you to read a number plate from the required distance.

You will then be asked to get into your vehicle and, before setting off, the examiner will explain to you how you will be given direction instructions.

During a short section of the driving test you will be asked to either follow direction signs or to follow directions from a sat nav. This part of the test is known as independent driving. You will also be asked to demonstrate you can use an ancillary control safely (for example, washing the front windscreen).

During the test you are allowed to make 15 driving faults. However 1 serious or dangerous fault will result in failure.
