Driving theory test candidates are required to take the multiple choice part of the theory test in English in England and Scotland; candidates in Wales have the option of taking the test in either English or Welsh. Deaf or hard of hearing candidates across GB have the option of taking the test using an on-screen signer using British Sign Language.
