The DVSA website offers lots of practical help and information about learning to drive. You can also book and manage your Theory and Practical tests online.

From time to time you may be asked to provide a 'Check Code' for your driving licence. This allows Gus Hilton Driving School to check that your licence is current and valid, for instance before your first lesson or after a break in training. You can get a Check Code here. You will need your licence number, National Security number and the postcode for your licence.

Driving Test Success is an online service where you can practice for the Theory and Hazard Perception tests as well as accessing training videos. Go to their website here.

Driving Hub is a really useful site with great information for driving on motorways and other high speed roads. With sections on preparing yourself and your car for the journey, road procedure, awareness and what to do in the event of a breakdown, it's well worth a look. Just click here.

CarWow is an online comparison site for buying new or second hand cars. Please be aware that I have no connection with CarWow and cannot engage in correspondence with them on your behalf.

All cars over 3 years old are required to have an MOT Certificate. GoCompare have produced a handy guide to the MOT here.
