Many people have the mis-conception that the Part 1 test will be solely on the highway code and end up failing to pass this at the first attempt because of the lack of preparation. Although there will be some questions on the highway code questions are set into four sections.
More information on the tests can be found by purchasing an ADI 14 from the DSA and also the information required to pass the part 1 theory test.
The test requires you to have a full knowledge of driving, the mechanics of the car, learning people with disabilities and various learning techniques.
Most of the information can be found in the books listed below and are usually found at the major high street book stores. ( Please note every effort is made to ensure accuracy but this is not guaranteed please refer to the ADI 14)
