    Theory Test Centres Near Bridgend

    Passing your theory test is the first step in your driving journey. Without it, taking a practical test is impossible. LPOD Academy puts as much emphasis on the theory as much as on the practical.


    Typically, a learner will purchase a theory guide or download a theory app and that would be enough. But sometimes it won’t suffice and it can lead to not passing the theory test in any desirable time frames.


    With our intensive driving courses in Bridgend, you can access our free theory course included with all bookings. It will help you become more confident with the theory test! When taking your test, Bridgend has its own test centre and there are other test centres such as Swansea.

    Which course is best for me?

    We go by the DVSA's recommended amount of time needed to pass a driving test. This is currently at 47 hours. This means that if you have had 20 hours of training previously we would expect you to need 25 hours of training to get to a good level to pass a driving test. However, there are many factors to consider; how long ago you had lessons, how well you did. Whether you suffer from anxiety or deep-rooted nerves. For an informal chat please call 0800 112 3515 and discuss with one of our team members.

    Can I pass my theory with you?

    Absolutely! If you need to include & do your theory as part of your intensive course, then we can add this to your booking.

    Yes, breaks will be given roughly at the halfway point of training sessions. If you prefer to not have any breaks, then we can make a note of this upon your booking with us!
