Driving Theory Test
The Driving Theory Test is conducted at a computor work station and comprises of two sections: multiple-choice and hazard perception. You need to successfully complete both parts to pass the Driving Theory Test.
Multiple Choice (Duration: 57 mins.)
Before the test starts you'll be given instructions on how this section of the test works, and here you will have the choice of doing a practice session before the real test begins. The real test consists of a series of multi-choice questions. You must select the correct answer for each question (though, be aware that some questions may require more than one answer). You can move between questions and "flag" questions that you want to come back to later in the test.
Some car and motorcycle questions will be given as a case study. The case study will:
- Show a short story that five questions will be based on
- Focus on real life examples and experiences that you could come across when driving
Hazard Preception (Duration: 14 Video Clips)
Before you start the hazard perception part, you'll be shown a short video clip about how it works. You'll then be shown 14 video clips on a computer screen, all of which contain a developing hazard. The earlier you notice a developing hazard and make a response, the higher you will score, the maximum score for each developing hazard being five points. A developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction. The clips shown feature:
- Everyday road scenes
- At least one developing hazard (though one clip will feature two developing hazards)
