The theory test has over the past few years become a standard part of learning to drive, according to statistics; it has proven to be a positive introduction to the process of learning to drive. However, not everybody has to take the theory test in order to be entitled to further driving privileges.
UK License Holders
If a UK license holder wishes to upgrade to a higher category such as upgrading from a full automatic license to a manual car license, then they will not require to sit the theory exam, however, if a driver wishes to add a new category then they will have to do the entire course that category requires, including sitting the theory test. One such example is a driver with a full car license wishing to take their motorbike test.
Foreign License Holders
Holders of a driving license issued within the EEA countries are entitled to drive on their foreign license for as long as their driving permit is valid and their license must clearly state which categories the holder is entitled to drive.
Countries within the EEA are:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Republic of Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, be führerschein Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Driving Licenses Issued in Countries Outside of the EEA
Drivers who have a driving license issued outside of the EEA may be entitled to swap their driving permit for a UK driver’s license on a like for like basis providing that they hold a full valid driving license. However, this is only a possibility and not applicable in every instance, for full clarification on the subject, driver’s wishing to enquire about exchanging their non EEA Country issued driving license must refer their enquiry to the DVLA.
If an individual wishes to obtain a British driving license and is unable to exchange their non EEA country original license for a British one, then in order to be able to obtain a British driving license, they will have to do the full driving course. This includes the theory test and must be done prior to being able to book the practical exam.
Documentation for the Theory Test
Those wishing to take their theory test will have to provide certain documentation in order to be able to sit the test; failure to provide these documents will result in the DSA refusing to admit a candidate for their test and the candidate forfeiting their fee:
- Provisional license (both parts, photo-card and paper part)
- For those who still have the old fashioned paper license, they must present a valid passport, under normal circumstances, no other form of photographic ID is admissible.
