About the theory test
The theory test is a touchscreen based test, and consists of two parts. The first part is a series of multiple choice questions and the second part is a test of your hazard perception skills using videos of real driving situations. You must pass both parts of the test at the same sitting to pass the theory test. If you fail either part you will have to retake both parts again.
PART 1: MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS
It is the multiple choice part that you can practice on this site.
The multiple choice part consists of 50 multiple choice questions. In the actual test you select your answers by simply touching the screen. You need to touch the box alongside the answer or answers you think are correct. If you change your mind and don't want that answer to be selected, touch it again. You can then choose another answer.
There are 50 questions and you have 57 minutes to complete the test. You can navigate between questions and 'flag' questions that you want to come back to later in the test.
The pass mark for the multiple choice part of the theory test is 43 out of 50.
PART 2: HAZARD PERCEPTION
The hazard perception part is delivered on a computer and you respond by clicking a button on the mouse. You will be presented with a series of 14 video clips which feature every day road scenes, in each clip there will be at least one developing hazard, but one of the clips will feature two developing hazards.
To achieve a high score you will need to respond to the developing hazard during the early part of its development. The maximum you can score on each hazard is 5, then reducuing to 4, 3, 2, 1, and "0" for responding too late or missing the hazard completely. It is important to only click for hazards. If the computer detects a pattern of clicking (e.g. rythmically clicking the button) then it will suspect you of cheating and score you "0" for that clip. So watch the clip and only click for the things that may cause you to change your speed or direction.
You will not be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test; as on the road, you will only have one chance to respond to the developing hazard.
The pass mark for the car and motorcycle hazard perception part of the theory test is 44 out of 75.
