All 1st 4 Driving pupils get full, free theory training when they book with us! It really is that simple.
That’s right, not only are we experts in helping people pass their practical test, but we’re also there for you with your theory test! When you book your driving lessons in Pontypridd with us, you’ll receive access to Theory Test Suite, an online application proven to DOUBLE your chances of passing.
Theory Test Suite can be accessed via the Total Drive app on your computer, or using the mobile app, meaning there’s literally no excuse not to practice. You can study in the comfort of your own home, or brush up on those road signs while you’re out and about using your phone.
You’ll get full access (unlike other schools) to the entire database of questions. This includes both parts of the theory test, the multiple choice side and the hazard perception test.

We’ll look to book your theory test ASAP to get it out the way. There are a couple of different options open to you for the theory test around Pontypridd. Your local theory test centre is up the A470 in Merthyr Tydfill, or if you prefer, you can take it at the Cardiff Theory Test Centre on Churchill Way.
