The Driving Theory Test


The multi-choice part of the test consists of 50 questions based on the Highway code and road safety concerns. The pass rate is 43 and you will be allowed 57 minutes to complete it.

 

The cost is £30.00. This won't be refunded if you fail.

 

Hazard Perception Test
 

Once the multiple-choice questions have been answered you will take the hazard perception test.

 

This is made up of 14 video clips and is designed to measure your ability to see developing road hazards. A tutorial will play before the test starts which will show you how to take the test.

 

The pass rate is 44 from a maximum score of 75. To pass the theory test you must pass both parts - the multi-choice questions and the hazard perception test - otherwise you will fail and will have retake both parts at a later date.

 

The cost for both parts is £30.00 which is non-refundable if you fail.
