    Well I left it quite late in life to be learning to drive, and with everything else in life being so manic it's hard to focus which makes me wish I had done it years ago.

    Anyhow... I am currently taking lessons every Saturday morning for 2hrs, and I have booked my theory test & hazard perception test in for 24.11, taken some mock tests and am only out by 3 questions each time, which is OK as it's close but no cigar.

    How did everyone else find studying for the theory?

    When I did my theory, it was still paper based and no separate hazard perception.

    Anyway, I actually studied for and passed my theory before taking any lessons. I used the official theory test book from the DSA, the AA book as well as a CD CBT for the theory test. I didn't fancy paying someone to help me study for the theory test.

    The worst thing for me was the wait to get my results (I didn't opt for the same day marking which was a little more expensive)...

    I signed up to the 30 day package at theorytest.net, Get example hazard perception videos and all the questions mixed in etc, I found after about 10 days I was acing most, and waltzed through my theory test, got one wrong I think, forget now but got through nice and easily anyway.

    I brought the DSA CD ROM and used it to study for about 2 weeks. It has mock questions and answers, and more importantly mock hazard perception tests you can do. I wasn't sure how the hazard perception would be, but after using this it put my mind and ease and I passed first time no problems.

    A lot of the questions are pretty much common sense as far as I can remember, its only really the signs, speeds and stopping distances you need to actually learn! 8)
