TheoryTestQuestionTheoryTestQuestionThe Theory Test - What to Expect

The theory test is made up of two parts; the multiple choice part and the hazard perception part. You need to pass both parts to pass the theory test. Once you have passed the theory test you can then apply to take your practical driving test.

A question and several answer options will appear onscreen and you have to select the correct answer to the question by touching the screen. Some questions may require more than one answer. Some multiple choice questions will be given as a case study. The case study will show a scenario that five questions will be based on. You'll be asked 50 questions in 57 minutes and the pass mark is 43 out of 50


The hazard perception part is also delivered on a computer but you  respond by clicking a button on the mouse. You'll be presented with a series of 14 video clips which feature every day road scenes. 
In each clip there'll be at least one developing hazard, but one of the clips will feature two developing hazards.
To achieve a high score you'll need to respond to the developing hazard  during the early part of its development. The maximum you can score on each hazard is five.
The pass mark for the hazard perception part of the theory test is 44 out of 75.
