You will need to pass a theory test before you are able to book a practical driving test. There are two elements to the theory test, which are taken at the same sitting. You will be asked 50 multiple choice questions and watch 14 vidoes clips of developing hazards (hazard percetion). You must passed both elements in order to pass the theory test.
There are a number of aids for your study. We recommend a good theory test DVD, "The Highway Code" and "know your traffic signs". There are a number of apps available. However, we recommend these are used in addition to your study not to replace it.
The video below should explain the test clearly.
What's Involved in the Theory Test?

Also, he was very relaxed and friendly allowing you to have confidence in your driving.I would definitely recommend Lytes Driving School because he was a good Instructor in a brand new car at reasonable prices.And I managed to pass first time as well, despite my complete inexperience three months ago.”

“My friend recommended Lytes Driving School. It was much harder than everyone makes it look ! I expected to grasp it really quickly, but sadly that didn’t happen. Dave was brilliant with me! I remember at first he kept pushing me to make me talk about what was coming up and I hated it. But looking back now I can see how much that helped me. He was so patient with me too. I would definitely recommend Lytes driving school. In fact I’ve all ready recommended Lytes to a friend. He quickly gauges how you learn best, but also makes driving fun and interesting-everything you need. I think it goes without saying that Dave is an amazing Instructor. Without him I would never have passed first time- deserves a medal for putting up with me”‘
