Taking the theory test
Your hazard perception and driving theory test really needs to be taken before you book the intensive driving course, the reasons being we cannot book your practical driving test until you have a valid theory test pass certificate.
If you need help in booking your theory test then please give us a call and we will be happy to help.
The theory test explained
The driving 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.
Part one – Multiple choice
A question and several answer options will appear on a computer screen and you have to select the correct answer to the question by touching the screen. Some questions may require more than one answer.
You will be asked 50 questions in 57 minutes and the pass mark is 43 out of 50.
Part two - Hazard perception
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 car hazard perception part of the theory test is 44 out of 75.
You need to take your driving licence with you.
