Theory Test

Theory Certificates

Theory/Hazard Perception Test preparation is essential. Practical tests cannot be booked until the Theory/Hazard Perception Test has been passed. Although this is a self-study phase of learning I can provide all the necessary aids and information required. I am happy to carry out in-car theory training on request.

Theory Tests can be booked on-line at or by phone on 0300 200 1122

The Theory Test consists of two parts; 50 questions with multiple choice answers and a Hazard Perception Test on video clips. To obtain your Theory Test Pass Certificate both parts must be passed on the same attempt.

The multiple choice section is presented on a touch screen computer, in order to pass you must correctly answer 43 from 50 questions within 57 minutes.

How does the hazard perception test work?
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 five. The pass mark is 44 from a possible 75

On successful completion of the test you will be presented with your Certificate, you will need this when booking and reporting for your Practical Test.
