You have 57 minutes to answer 50 multiple-choice questions.
Before the test starts you’ll get:
- instructions on how the test works
- the chance to do some practice questions to get used to the screens
How the test works
A question and several possible answers appear on a screen. You have to select the right answer.
Three of the questions are about a short video. It will show a normal driving situation, such as:
- driving through a town centre
- driving on a country road
The video is silent. You can watch it as many times as you like during the test.
Leaving a question
You can ‘flag’ questions that you want to come back to later.
Changing your answers
You can go back to any question to review and change your answer at any point.
When you’ve finished
You can finish the multiple-choice questions part when you’ve answered all of the questions. You do not have to use the full 57 minutes.
You can have a break of up to 3 minutes before the hazard perception test starts.
Pass mark and test result
You’ll get the result at the test centre after taking the theory test. You must pass both parts to pass the test.
|Pass mark||Points available|
If you pass
You’ll get a letter with a pass certificate number at the test centre. You need this when you book and take your driving test.
Your pass certificate number lasts for 2 years. You must pass your driving test in that time, otherwise you’ll have to pass the theory test again.
If you fail
You’ll get a letter at the test centre. It’ll tell you which parts you did not score enough points on so you know what to practise.
You must book and take the full test again, even if you passed one part this time.
You have to wait at least 3 working days before taking your test again.
