You need to take a DVLA theory test if you already have a provisional licence and you wish to apply for a full driving licence. This test has two parts, which are the multiple choice questions and the hazard perception test. After taking the multiple choice questions, you would immediately go to the second part, which is the hazard perception test. You need to pass both of these tests so you could apply to take the driving test and get your full driving licence.
