About the theory test

The theory test is made up of two parts taken via a computer at a theory test centre local to you.     The first part is a multiple choice test. There are 50 questions asked (one at a time) and forty three of these must be answered correctly in order to pass this part of the test. You answer by just touching the screen over the correct answer.

You may return to any of the questions and change any answers you wish to in the 57mins time scale you are allotted for this part of the theory test.

Hazard perception testHazard perception test.

This is the second part of the test and consists of 14 individual video clips, 13 clips contain one major developing hazard and one clip contains two. This part of the test is to assess your ability to see the hazardous situations and your response to these hazards. You identify them by clicking the mouse; the quicker you respond, the higher the mark. You must obtain a mark 44 out of a possible 75 to pass this part of the test.

 Thing to note:

1) The written and the hazard perception test have to be passed at the same time to obtain a pass certificate and you will be told your results at the end of your tests.

2) If you have any special needs. I.e. dyslexia or other reading difficulties, headsets can be provided and the questions spoken to you. Or if you wish to take your theory test in a language other than English, please express this at the time of booking so arrangements can be made for you.

3)When attending your theory test you will need to take both parts (card and paper part) of your licence with you as proof of ID. Without these you will not be allowed to sit the test.

4)The theory and practical test must be passed within a two year period or you will need to retake your theory and hazard parts again.
