The theory test consists of two parts done in conjunction with each other
- Part 1: This is a multiple-choice test consisting of 50 questions. In order to pass this part of the test you need to have answered 43 or more questions correctly. These questions are chosen randomly from a bank of 1000 questions and you answer by clicking on the answer or touching the screen. Some questions have more than one answer and MAKE SURE to pay attention and read the question carefully before answering. You are allowed to skip any question and go back to it later.
- Part 2: This is the hazard perception test which consists of 14 video clips which are 1 minute long. These clips will show potential road hazards and your aim is to identify the hazards. The scoring goes from 5 to 0 the quicker you identify the hazard the higher you score. The pass rate for this part of the test is 44 out of 75 and you are allowed 20 minutes to complete this part of the test. You are not able to repeat any of the clips on this test as a hazard is a hazard and needs to be spotted as its happening. Some pupils may ask “If I continuously click will I score the maximum of 5 points per clip?” The answer is NO continuously clicking will result in a Warning letting you know that you have continuously clicked and that you will not earn any marks for that clip.
- You have to achieve or exceed the pass rate for both parts of the test before passing the theory test. If you fail the hazard perception and passed the multiple choice part this will result in a fail and vice versa
