Theory Test

The theory test is in two parts - a question part and a hazard perception part. Both parts have to be passed at the same time and he whole theory test must be passed before you can apply for the practical driving test. Most theory tests are carried out at dedicated theory test centres.

The first part of the theory test involves 50 multiple choice questions which are displayed on a touch screen computer. The pass mark for this part is 43 out of 50. You can learn for the theory test using recommended resources such as books and dvd's.

Hazard Perception (HPT)
When you've completed the questions, there will be a short delay and then the Hazard perception test will start. The test consists of 14 clips of film each lasting around 30 or 40 seconds. In total there are 15 "developing hazards" that you will need to identify. The sooner you identify the scoring hazards, the higher your score. There is a maximum of 5 points per scoring hazard. You just need to click the mouse, not move the mouse cursor over the hazard. The pass mark for the hazard perception tests is 44 out of 75.

At Ray Driver Training we can provide full advice and support for both aspects of the theory test.
