    Theory Test Centres Near Bearsden

    Bearsden does not have its own theory test centre, this will require you to travel to the nearest test centre that would be situated in Greenock.


    Booking a practical is impossible until you’ve passed your theory test, that’s why taking a theory test is very important.


    It is ideal to pass your theory, however, with all our driving courses in Bearsden, we don’t mind if you have not passed your theory yet. We like to take on learners who have not got their theory as we believe it’s just as important as the practical test.

    Frequently Asked Questions...

    When can start I the course?

    We advise starting in no less than 4 weeks. On some occasions, we may be able to offer earlier start date. The shorter the course the earlier we may be able to start. If you have not got your theory we advise a month so we can have enough time to plan everything from passing your theory test so we can source a test date for you.

    How many hours do courses be taken?

    Typically within 1 - 2 weeks. The course can vary in time but our goal is to complete your course as soon as possible.

    Does my driving instructors accompany me to my test centre?

    Absolutely. Our driving instructor will take your driving test. You are more than welcome if you wish to take your own car to test.

    How many attempts do I get?

    All courses that include the theory & practical have 1 attempt each. But, if you book a 20+ hour course, you are entitled to a free retest.

    I am dyslexic and I struggle with my theory. Can you help?

    We have a 12-hour online course that will help you pass your driving theory test. It has been designed for people who prefer to learn by watching videos and who may take the test in audio.
