The theory test consists of two parts: multiple-choice questions and hazard perception. The multiple-choice section covers various topics, including road signs, rules of the road, and general driving knowledge.
How many questions are in the theory test, and what is the pass mark?
The multiple-choice section of the theory test consists of 50 questions, and you need to answer at least 43 correctly to pass. The pass mark may vary if the DVSA decides to make any changes in the future.
What is the hazard perception part of the theory test?
The hazard perception part tests your ability to identify and respond to potential hazards while driving. You will watch a series of video clips and need to click the mouse when you spot a developing hazard.
How many hazard perception clips are there, and what is the pass mark?
The hazard perception part consists of 14 video clips. Each clip contains one or two hazards. The pass mark is currently set at 44 out of 75, and you need to score at least 57 points to pass.
How long is the theory test valid for?
Once you pass your theory test, the certificate is valid for two years. During this period, you must pass your practical driving test to obtain a full driving license. If you don't pass the practical test within this timeframe, you'll need to retake the theory test.
Can I reschedule or cancel my theory test?
Yes, you can reschedule or cancel your theory test, but you must provide at least three working days' notice. Failing to do so may result in losing your test fee. You can manage your booking online or contact the DVSA for assistance.
Q: Are these questions the same as in the official UK theory test?
Answer: No, but they are very similar. The questions on this site are reproduced from the DVSA revision material which is almost identical as the actual test.
(You can't find exactly the same questions (as in the real test) anywhere because the real questions are not public)
Q: How does the hazard perception test work?
Answer: When the video starts to play, you will see an orange "Hazard!" -button over the video. You should click the "Hazrd -button" when you see a developing hazard. After the video, you see your points and the solution. (In the actual test, you just need to click the video to give your answer, there will be no separate button.)
