The Theory Test

The Theory Test is taken using a touch-screen computer at your local test centre. There are two sections to this test, the first consists of a series of multiple choice questions covering a wide range of driving related topics and the second covers Hazard Perception. In Hazard Perception you will be shown 15 video clips, each of which contains one or more a "developing hazard(s)" that you must respond to by clicking the mouse button as soon as you spot them.

To get your Theory Test Certificate you must achieve pass marks in both parts of the test on the same date. This certificate lasts for two years, after which, if you have not passed your Practical Test, you will have to re-sit the full Theory Test.

If you have a PC at home or have access to one, I will be able to lend you software* that will let you practice both sections of the Theory test.
