The Theory Test

The Theory Test

Click: Book Theory Test

You will need to pass a two parts test, the first part is a multiple choice test and the second is a Hazard Perception test. Both parts are done on a computer by using a touch screen for the questions and a computer mouse for the hazard perception to test your response on the 14 video clips.

Even though you are in a room with a number of other candidates you are screened from one another and you have the option to wear headphones to drown out any distractions. You have to pass both parts to be successful.

The theory test can be booked by visiting the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) website or a member of the Pass Now Ltd team will book it for you. (£8 Administration Charge)

Before the test starts it is important to listen carefully to the explanation on how the test works.

A practice session of the multiple choice questions is available to get used to the layout of the test. The real test will start at the end of the practice session.

As a multiple choice questions test you will be provided with several possible answers of which you need to select the required amount of answers for each question.

You have the option to flag questions if you are unsure and would like to answer at a later stage in the test. Remember never to leave a question unanswered, even if you have to guess. An unanswered question will be marked as wrong.

Take advantage of the three minutes break before starting the Hazard Perception test.

You need to answer 50 questions within 57 minutes and the pass mark is 43 out of 50.

Hazard Perception Test 

Before the test starts it is important to listen carefully to the explanation on how the test works.

You will be presented with a series of 14 video clips which feature every day road scenes. In 13 of the clips there is one developing hazard and 1 clip has two developing hazards.

As you do not know which developing hazard has been selected by the computer, you will need to click on whatever situation you deem a hazard.

The score for each clip ranges from 0-5. The pass mark is 44 out of 75.

Having completed the test you can leave the examination room, but will not be allowed to re-enter. You will be given your results by a member of the test centre staff.

Your test can be rescheduled or cancelled over the telephone or online. You are required to give DVSA three clear working day’s notice. The last date of change will be highlighted on your theory test appointment confirmation.  Link: Change your theory test
