To be a safe driver, you need to know the rules of the road, and that’s where the driving theory test comes in.
The test is divided into two parts – multiple choice and hazard perception. Both tests are usually completed on a computer at the test station.
The multiple choice section consists of 50 questions, which you have 57 minutes to complete. You’ll need 43 or more correct answers to pass.
You’ll then have the option of taking a short break before starting the hazard perception test.
This section involves watching 14 video clips which feature “everyday road scenes”, with at least one developing hazard.
TOP TIP – one of the clips will feature two developing hazards rather than one, so watch out for that one.
You need to click the mouse whenever you see a hazard developing. Each hazard carries a maximum score of five, and you’ll gain more points for spotting hazards earlier.
The pass mark for the hazard perception test is 44 of a possible 75.
