Theory test

Theory tests are held at one of the test centres, by appointment, within a specified timeframe.


The theory test can, on request by the driving school, be taken in the form of an oral examination by appointment, accompanied by a sworn interpreter if necessary, and which is held on Mondays and Fridays only at the SNCA site in Sandweiler.

On the day of the theory test

For organisational reasons, you are asked to arrive at the test centre 10 minutes before the start of the test, bringing with you a valid ID document and your learner's certificate.

Candidate who fail to attend without having given 24 hours notice and those who take the test again after a previous failure are required to pay a resit fee of 30 euros before taking the test and present a form in respect of an application to resit the theory test (Demande de réadmission à l'examen théorique). Your driving school can provide you with these documents.

NB The resit fee (taxe de réadmission) cannot be paid to the person supervising the theory test.

Questions for the theory test

Simulate a theoretical driving test online. Priority rules, road signs, behaviour to adopt in dangerous situations. This test consists of 20 questions drawn at random from the set of questions in category B.

Please note, that this simulation is only intended to familiarize you with the test. It is not a substitute for learning the Highway Code.

A simplified version of the legislation on driving licences exists in the form of the popular Luxembourg highway code (Code de la Route populaire). This basic handbook is usually used in driving schools for preparing candidates for the theory and practical tests for obtaining a driving licence. The book can be bought at bookshops and from the Securité Routière association.


The best support for the theoretical and practical test is the knowledge of the popular Highway Code.

A version in FR, DE and EN is available on the Sécurité Routière website.
