About the Theory Test




There are two parts to the test:-

1) Multiple choice questions - You need to answer 50 questions in 57 minutes.

2) Hazard Perception - This is a video about spotting hazards on the road.

Both parts of the test are done on a PC.


You must book & take them as a single test. You must pass both parts in order to pass the test.
