Theory Test Pro




The Theory test is made up of two parts, part 1 is 50 questions with multiple choice answers and part 2 is a 14 clip hazard perception test.
In order to pass your Theory test you MUST pass both parts.

All Driver and Rider training customers will be given free access to an on-line practice web-site. Please ask your instructor for the log on details.

The multiple choice part:

Before the test starts you’ll be given instructions on how it works, you will also be given the opportunity to take a practice session.

At the end of the practice session the real test will begin.

Each question and several answers will appear on your computer screen, read each question and all possible answers carefully before making your selection, with some questions you will be required to select more than one answer.

  • Some car and motorcycle questions will be given as a case study.

The case study will:

  • show a short story that five questions will be based on
  • focus on real life examples and experiences that you could come across when driving.

You are allowed 57 minutes for the multiple choice part of the Theory test and a pass is 43 out of 50.

Hazard perception part:
Before you start the hazard perception part, you’ll be shown a short video clip about how it works.
You’ll then be shown 14 video clips on a computer screen.

The clips:

  • feature everyday road scenes
  • contain at least one developing hazard – but one of the clips will feature two developing hazards
  • A developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction.

How the hazard perception scoring works:
The earlier you notice a developing hazard and make a response, the higher you will score. The most you can score for each developing hazard is five points.
You will see 14 clips and have a total of 15 developing hazards, A pass mark is 44 out of 75 .

To get a high score you need to:

  • respond to the developing hazard during the early part of its development
  • press the mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing

You won’t be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test.
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.
