The theory part (multiple choice questions) and the hazard perception part. You will need to pass both parts of the test to pass the driving theory test in order to be able to complete your practical driving test.
We recommend that you revise for your driving theory test as soon as you begin your driving lessons, if not before starting your driving lessons.
The driving theory test was first introduced in 1996. The theory section of the test is a written exam completed by multiple choice style questions and is completed on a touch screen computer. You must score a minimum of 43 out of 50 in order to pass.
The hazard perception section of the test was first introduced in 2002 and contains a series of video clips in which the learner is required to click to identify the developing hazard. A developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction.
During your hazard perception you will be shown a total of 14 video clips containing 15 hazards in total. These clips will feature everyday road scenes similar to those experienced on your Grimsby based driving lessons. You are able to score a maximum of 5 for each hazard. The sooner you click for the developing hazard the higher you will score. If you click continuously or in a pattern during a clip, a message will appear at the end. It will tell you that you have scored zero for that particular clip, so make sure you don't overdo your clicking.
The pass mark for this section is 44 out of 75. Once you have completed and passed your theory test, it is valid for 2 years, allowing you ample time to complete your driving lessons and with our expert tuition, be at the required standard to pass your practical driving test.
