Your Theory Test

Your theory test is split into two parts. Part one is in the form of multiple choice questions, and part two is called the hazard perception test. You must pass both parts to pass the exam. You must pass your theory test before you can book a practical driving test.

Theory Test Questions

You’ll be required to answer 50 questions with multiple choice answers. You must achieve a minimum score of 43 answers correct out of the 50 to pass. Some questions ask for more than one answer so read all the questions carefully.

If you are not sure about an answer just leave it and go back to it at the end. Don’t rush because you will have plenty of time.

The Hazard Perception Test

The hazard perception test is also shown on a computer screen. You’re allowed a short practice session at the start. You will be shown 14 video clips as though you were driving a car, you have to look out for potential hazards ahead. You must respond quickly when you see a hazard developing, for example: Imagine you are driving and you see workmen working on the road up ahead, quite rightly they could be a hazard so you should click your mouse button, however suddenly you notice one of the workmen walking out into your path, that’s the point when the hazard has suddenly developed further. You need to get a minimum score of 44 points out of 75 to pass the hazard perception test. I will give you lots of help on your driving lessons on how to spot potentially developing hazards.


Your Driving Test

So it’s the day of your driving test and its time to show a driving examiner what you can do. One of the major reasons for failing a driving test is down to lack of practice or driving lessons.

Some people think that they are at test standard just because they can move off, stop and make a few turns. If you take my advice as to when you are ready you will stand a lot better chance of passing first time.

Message from Joe

Throughout your training I’ll give you lots of practice on all the possible routes used for independent driving.

Your driving test will be about 40 - 45 minutes long. Your examiner will expect you to drive the car like a competent driver and in a similar style recommended by the Driving Standards Agency. The test route chosen by your examiner will have lots of different roads and junctions. At some point during your test the examiner will ask you to perform a control manoeuvre, this will be either, a reverse into a side road on the left, a parallel park around a stationary vehicle, a turn in the road or a reverse into a parking bay. You may also be asked to do an emergency stop, although these are not tested on every test.

At some point in your test your examiner will ask you to drive independently for a certain length of time. You will be given a series of route directions to follow. This might be just the next few turnings or following a route sign, such as, following the signs for the town centre etc.
